Happy Kids

Happy Kids by Cathy Glass is a fresh and exciting self-help guide to successfully managing children’s behaviour, from babies to young adults. Cathy’s technique, called ‘The 3Rs’ is her own, and is based on sound child-management strategies. The book has been spawned by the huge success of her fostering memoirs – Damaged, Hidden, and Cut, where Cathy is shown, not only forging relationships with the children she looks after, but also successfully managing and vastly improving the children’s often very difficult behaviour.

Happy Kids has wide commercial appeal with a huge target audience of parents, carers, teachers, nursery nurses, nannies, childminders; in fact anyone who looks after children and is responsible for the children’s behaviour. To compliment this book Cathy runs a Forum on her website – www.cathyglass.co.uk where readers can email their questions on managing children’s behaviour and receive a personal response from Cathy.
