What must African parents in the United Kingdom know? The author has simplified what could be a complex area for those to whom it is particularly relevant. She discusses the law, culture, values and mores in the United Kingdom as they affect areas of the child’s welfare for this group of people.
The book is packed with vivid, thought provoking case examples and scenarios that shed light on issues faced by many African families in the United Kingdom today with some advice on parenting and the way forward in dealing with particular challenges.
This is not just another self-help book; it is a timely, essential, one stop manual
