'The Bonsai Child is an important and timely book. As a practising clinical psychologist, Judith Locke has not only observed the negative consequences of over-parenting; she has drawn on her experience to develop positive alternative strategies" HUGH MACKAY AO Australian psychologist, social researcher and bestselling author
'The Bonsai Child is an incredibly engaging and readable book about parenting and ways to support children and young people. As both educators and parents, our staff found Judith's book easy to understand and applicable. It gave us a multitude of great ideas about how to engage students and their families at our school and build resilience and coping tools essential for their future lives. The Bonsai Child and associated training that Judith provided to staff and parents was so invaluable that we gifted copies to all our Year 7 families for 2020.Thank you, Judith, for such an informative and well-written resource tool for parents and educators alike. We are looking forward with anticipation to reading your new book The Bonsai Student.'LISA ROMBERG Deputy Principal: Student Wellbeing, Danebank, An Anglican School for Girls, Sydney
'Having had the pleasure of working with Judith for many years, I have seen first-hand in my own home parenting teenagers as well as within a professional context in the school setting, how impactful her advice is. Judith's research is contemporary, and her advice is highly relevant in the modern context of raising children. Judith helps us to understand what the needs of young people are and how we can best support them to become confident, capable and resilient. Not only is Judith's advice easy to understand and implement, it also helps us take the guilt out of parenting to get the best outcomes for our children. Judith consults for MLC Claremont on a regular basis and her advice is greatly appreciated by teachers and parents alike. We all look forward to her return visits and practical advice.'DR MARIE PERRY Principal, Methodist Ladies' College, Perth
