A beautifully written & illustrated book on parenting

How to Handle a Child

Written and illustrated by Sveta Dorosheva, her book on parenting is now published by Atticus Press in Russia.

The book is based on true stories and conversations with Sveta's own children and covers topics such as; how to name a child, how to deal with a tantrum, how to play with a child and how to discipline them. Beautifully illustrated with her own work, she says of the book, "Each of the 22 episodes starts out with a maxim uttered by a child, be it the 'Aaaaaaa' of the newborn or a teenager's verdict on life. The rest of the story elaborates on this 'prophecy', trying to deduct wisdom, lesson or principle, in the manner of a parable. The resulting stories are full of subtle humor, truth and are instantly recognizable and appealing to anyone who has dared to tread the unpredictable, full of trial, error and humility path of parenthood."
