Psychotherapist and author of the number one bestseller The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (and Your Children Will be Glad That You Did) Philippa Perry does away with the notion of the ‘perfect parent’ once and for all, and instead faces our relationships with our children head-on. She will show us how strong and loving bonds with our children give a better chance of good mental health, in childhood and beyond. We can learn not just to love our children, but to like them too.  Answering your parenting questions, Philippa Perry will ensure you leave having received sage, sane and practical advice. 

This event is part of Life Lessons Festival, a weekend of big talks from big thinkers presented by The Sunday Times, featuring headline events in partnership with Penguin Live.

Life Lessons takes place at The Barbican, London on 15th and 16th February 2020.
