Thinking of the playground at Primary school conjures up memories of fun and games and friendships. We may also remember uncertainties and anxieties and maybe even enemies.

What rich experiences our children will have and so will we as adults!
Parents often wait in the playground before and after school to drop off and collect their children. This special time can be a time to look forward to, or it can be a time to dread, or often somewhere in between. For it is not just the children that have fun and games in the playground!

This book will tell you what your child, and you! will experience in the exciting yet sometimes tension filled arena of the playground.

About the Author

Sue Jones was born in Surrey in 1957. She studied Psychology and Zoology at Reading University, graduating in 1979. She worked for many years at The Wellcome Foundation in Beckenham, Kent, before getting married and changing career direction. She is now an accredited counsellor who has been counselling for 20 years. She worked for Croydon Alcohol Counselling Service until its closure in 2010 and now works with Family Matters, a counselling organisation based in Gravesend, which helps survivors of sexual abuse and rape. As a teenager she experienced a significant trauma which has affected her life in many ways and has influenced her present choice of career. She now lives with her husband and two children in West Wickham, Kent, and it was here she experienced both the joys and the anxieties of the school run. From this experience her book entitled How to survive the Playground was born.
