Review:

'A unique resource for student parents. This book is accessible and easy to manage with a reassuring balance between personal experiences and factual information.' - Becky Robinson, Student Adviser, King's College London, UK 'This book is full of great advice to parents who are or are thinking of becoming student parents. It addresses the perceived barriers to education for parents and demonstrates, with heartwarming true stories, how you can not only succeed in further or higher education but play an active part of college or university life while you are there.' - Sophia Barnes, Student at University of Birmingham, UK. 'The tone of the book is great. A lot of information is provided but it remains informal and friendly which makes the book readable. Knowing that the author has successfully completed higher education with a child makes her relatable.' - Indianna Knight, Graduate from Cardiff University, UK
