Philippa Perry in Conversation with Nihal Arthanayake

What gets in the way of a good connection with our children?

How much does our own upbringing affect our parenting?

Join psychotherapist and bestselling author Philippa Perry as she faces head-on our relationships with our children, concentrating on what really matters and what behaviour to avoid, doing away with the notion of the ‘perfect’ parent.

In conversation with BBC 5 Live broadcaster and TV presenter Nihal Arthanayake, they’ll explore ideas from Philippa’s Sunday Times number one bestseller, The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read and Your Children Will Be Glad That You Did, on how strong and loving bonds are made with your children, and how such attachments give a better chance of good mental health, in childhood and beyond. Together we can learn not just to love our children, but to like them too.

Philippa will also be answering your parenting questions, making for an uplifting and reassuring evening packed with sage and sane advice.
