It’s 20 August 2018, late summer in Stockholm, and it feels incredibly hot in the city. The TV news is reporting rising temperatures, and there have been numerous fires throughout Sweden. Fifteen-year-old Greta Thunberg decides she can’t wait any longer: politicians have to do something to save the environment – she takes a placard to go on strike and sparks a global movement. This is her story, but also that of many other girls and boys around the world willing to fight against the indifference of the powerful for a better future.

Children are our greatest teachers; they bring us unimaginable joy but also trigger our deepest fears and subconscious patterns. In this book, Robin helps us to explore those fears and patterns in a gentle, supported process. With self-awareness, we are able to recognise when we have been triggered, and by taking the Inner Child Journey, we can release these old wounds. Step by step, we can understand our own childhood, and inturn, understand our children better. Through this Journey, we can become more conscious, mindful and present with our children, our family, and our friends. Inner child work is some of the most important that we will ever do, this book is essential for all parents, and professionals who work with children. Reviewed by Nurture xo

Hey Mamas, I wrote this book as I was introducing foods to my 1st son, Jet. I was shocked to read the out-dated advice compared to what we now know today aboutgut health, natu-ral immunity & allergies and intoler-ances. Being a Naturopath & Nutri-tionist I knew it was vital to get these early years of food optimal to set my children up for the future, espe-cially to avoid the greatly concerning rise of health conditions in children. This book is research-evidence based, includes recipes and your week-to-week guide through this vital chapter for your bub. I’m sure by following my book you will have healthy happy children that love food as my two boys do.
