Reviews and Praise

“Finally a book that matches my instinct! Thank-you!

“I would recommend this book to all parents who want to raise emotionally healthy children. Until now I have felt like the odd-one-out with viewing things from my children’s perspectives, and looking at long-term rather than short-term goals with them. Samantha speaks from the heart, to the heart…and gives you heart to keep going with bucking the conventions and doing what feels right. Thank-you! Thank-you! Thank-you!…for not only putting all this into words, but also for making those words so easy to connect with.”

“The gap in the market!

“There are many books available that deal with the idea of gentle parenting for babies and older children (school age) but very little for that in between stage. This book fills that gap in the market.


“Love this book!”

“It has a lot of great suggestions and examples for specific situations and a very attachment parenting style which is exactly what I was looking for.  Also was an easy and fast read, I managed to get through it in one evening while still caring for my 2yr old.”


“Continuum Concept parenting for toddlers”

“Reading The Continuum Concept by Jean Liedloff was eye opening and life changing for me in the best way. But I was left with the question, “How do I incorporate this into my modern life with my two toddlers (ages 1 and 2.5)?” This book was the answer to that for me. I love how simply put everything is and I have read through it many times in the past few months, going back every time I need a little reminder or pick-me-up. Thank you so much Samantha for writing this book, and for everything you do!”


“A real insight into life as a toddler”

“I loved this book! As a parent who tries to parent in a gentle and instinctive way I have found this book to give a real insight into my son’s life and way of seeing his environment. It supported my way of parenting and gave me advice in some areas that I have struggled with. It reminded me of what an absolute gift a toddler is and how much I hate the phrase “terrible twos”!

It is set out in a clear way and offers advise on most areas of life with a toddler and some of the struggles we can have.”

“My new go-to book for new parent gifts”

“To say I dug this book is putting it mildly. I feel like Sam and I are long-lost mother-twins. I want to be her new best friend. She’s a mom, a gentle mom, who wishes to help other parents tap into their instincts, drown out the static from the mainstream, and give their children what they need most, rather than what society says they should have. She’s looking to help parents do what they know is right, not what everyone tries to tell them they should do. She’s out to do the very thing we’re all looking to do – help the parents, so they can help their babes, so we can all change the world together.

She writes informally. This is not a textbook. This is not a highly scientific, rather inaccessible manual for experts. Reading this is like having an intimate conversation with a like-minded friend.”

“Fantastic book!”

“I’m a mother of two and a seasoned natural mum, but this opened my eyes and enabled me to see the world through my toddlers eyes and allow me to appreciate how other mothers do things. A beautifully writen book broken up into small chunks making it easy to pick up and put down and run after the toddler that’s squishing a banana into the carpet! I thought I had parenting down but this book I’d reccomend to all my friends entering the toddler stage of parenting. Truely enlightening and non judgemental book. Natural approach and just my cup of tea.”

“Invaluable, highly recommended”

“As a father sharing a relationship with a demanding toddler for the first time and trying to forge a natural connection with my son, this book has been one of just a handful that I have been loathe to put down. It has helped me to find a clear direction and focus in my approach to stressful situations and maximise the enjoyment of the irreplaceable moments of peace and pure harmony that can be had every day when embarking on a parenting journey as a slightly apprehensive father.

For me the philosophy and overriding message of the book is one of connection and I have been both helped and inspired to strengthen the relationship I have with my son. I am so grateful to be discovering the wealth of resources that are now available for those of us who want to follow our own parenting path. This book is one that I would recommend whole heartedly to all those who want to strengthen the relationship with their child and make some parenting choices which are perhaps not seen as the ‘norm’.”
