What Mamas are saying:
"Becoming Us made me feel calmer, gentler and more accepting of myself and my husband. It helped me see what we each bring to parenting and how much our son needs both our approaches."
"My partner suggested the book for us and I was amazed. We both read it and although we had good communication before, we have more tools to use now. I recommended Becoming Us to a friend and she said it's made the world of difference for her and her husband."
"At last! Someone’s finally talking about it! It’s so refreshing to finally read a book that’s so brave and honest, that reassures the reader “you’re not alone”. Full of insights, revelations and advice I’m sure other parents will welcome this book with relief."
