Please feel free to suggest interesting topics for me to cover in the comments sections of my blog as I am always keen to learn what parents would find helpful. You can follow me on Facebook (Shrinkgrowskids) and Twitter (@shrinkgrowskids). Unfortunately I am unable to respond to personal clinical queries and if you are worried about your child, please see your child’s doctor.
For book related/ media contact, please contact my agent: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am always looking for opportunities to increase awareness of child psychiatry and psychology, so please get in touch.
I really like all your blogs. However I feel they are mostly about the joys of parenting. Would love to hear your views on disciplining. We are currently really struggling with temper tantrums of a 5 year old..
Duly noted. Did you see the post “naughty mat misadventures”? It should reference a good book on behavioural management in the meantime!

Hi Holan, I have recently penned my book (39500 words) on Strategies for working with children who have experienced issues causing behavioural difficulties due to FASD, ASD, abuse, trauma, neglect, ODD etc and I am looking to publish. I was a speaker at The Brain to Behaviour Conference at ICH in 2012 and have gained a much wider experience since then, successfully looking after 13 long term Foster Children with quite severe background issues and complexities. I have just ordered your book and welcome the opportunity to discuss further any hints and tips you may be able to offer. Kind regards Mick J
Hi Mick, sorry – I have been a bit dormant on this blog for a while. What an achievement to finish writing a book and to have such great experience in fostering. The first step is to find an agent, and agent listings can be found in the Writers and Artists Yearbook. That is what I did, although I am aware there are other options including self-pub. Good Luck!
