About the Book

‘Baby Have I Failed You?’ is the topic that most people can relate to. It talks about parenting and the outcomes of parenting in general. It is based on general parenting and the troubled individuals we all become following the parenting we had from our parents. The emotions we go through as children when we witness what happens to and with our parents. The question, ‘Baby have I failed you?’ is a question every parent should ask themselves. This book makes every parent to question their parenting to their children and encourages parents to speak to their children in a way that children can understand that becoming a monster is not the solution to healing from bad childhood experience. Without giving away too much, this book seeks to stop passing the bulk from one generation to another. It seeks to draw a line and own up to our own mistakes without putting a blame on our parents.

About the Author

I was born in South Africa and in the 90’s the unemployment was at a high rate in South Africa. I was one of the lucky ones as I had a very good job but I left South Africa with my husband and our children due to some problems that were experienced by South Africans at the time particularly, those involved in Health Service. I travelled briefly settled in a number of European countries but the UK stole my heart. I finally settled in the UK with my only daughter who was brought up and educated in the UK. I studied to a University level in South Africa and UK, and I did different jobs in different countries and every single job I have done, I enjoyed and I did it to the best of my ability. I always enjoyed writing books but I never published any until now. I have pages all over in my house where I wrote about one thing or another. ‘Baby Have I Failed You’ is the very first book that I ever felt the need to publish. As a person who always did and still doing different jobs and get involved in different projects, I suddenly decided to pay more attention on writing books. I went through a lot for the last four years of my life and I found that writing books is the most therapeutic of any activity I ever got involved in. ‘Baby have I failed you?’ has some parts where I talk about my childhood, my two declined marriages. That on its own is very much healing for me as I get to speak about my life journey.
