'I haven’t stopped recommending the technique, it is so simple,yet so effective and so, so, so easy. So if you have a troublesome toddler, a problematic preschooler or a tempestous tweenager ditch the reward charts, the time outs, the punsishments and the naughty step and give love a chance instead. You may just be surprised at the results!'

'Oliver James occupies a pre-eminent position in the field of psychology and mental health. Whether writing about teenage violence, or dementia, or the roots of personality, Dr James approaches his subject with a unique combination of rigour and accessibility - a rare quality among health care professionals. In his latest book, Love Bombing: Reset Your Child's Emotional Thermostat, one can see why James has become Great Britain's best-selling psychological author. A friend to all parents, Oliver James has developed a creative, sensible, and effective method for helping parents to improve their relationships with their children. A brilliant antidote to the many punitive and prescriptive child-rearing manuals which dominate the shelves of our bookshops, Dr James encourages parents to love and respect their children with real compassion and understanding. His concept of the "emotional thermostat" deserves a prize. This book has the potential to transform the fabric of family life.'
