'This timely book has something to offer all parents - seasoned homeschoolers, those thrust into homeschooling unexpectedly, and those who wish to improve their relationships with children educated at school. Insightful, empowering, and accessible, Extraordinary Parenting is a well-informed practical guide to educating children at home that, crucially, helps parents understand their children's challenging behaviour and how to make it better.'

-- Professor Susan Golombok, Director of the University of Cambridge Centre for Family Research, and author of We Are Family: what really matters for parents and children

'An inspiring, creative and helpful book for parents. It's reminded me that there are simple tweaks we can make to our daily family lives to boost energy and morale.'

-- Annie Ridout, author of The Freelance Mum

'This book feels like a big hug just when we need it. Eloise's words offer reassurance, calm, and lots of practical suggestions.'

-- Simone Davies, author of The Montessori Toddler

'In easy-to-read, accessible language, Eloise holds our hands through parenting and home-educating with intention and connection in these extraordinary times. Her advice is practical and evidence-based. I love that the overall tone of the book doesn't feel preachy but empowering ... Eloise shows us how by simply observing our children at play we can deepen their learning of the world. Eloise maintains that you do not need a spacious home, your undivided attention, expensive toys and resources to educate your child.'

* Oh Creative Day *

'Eloise's book contains such valuable insights into parenting for change. Eloise sees parenting as a radical act and her book certainly inspired confident, calm and compassionate parenting which is truly beautiful.'
