    “So many parents ask me how we manage to get children to behave at school. Parents want advice on how to get their kids to take responsibility at home. Now I can just hand them Flush! I will be using it with my own kids at home too.”
    Emma Madden | leading UK headteacher

    “I just absolutely love Mrs Wordsmith. I've been looking at a different house rule every day, and I think this one is for me, not the kids, I absolutely love it.”

Whether it’s switching off the lights when they leave a room, learning to share, or taking responsibility for pets, Flush! is a contract between kids and parents that will put an end to arguments and negotiations around the house.

    ...to break the rules

    Kids who can think for themselves and who respect their homes and the people around them go on to do unexpected and incredible things. Flush! provides kids with the rules they need to become independent thinkers, visionaries, even renegades. They help kids learn to self-regulate and take responsibility for themselves, laying the foundations for school and beyond.

    A witty contract for life

    Flush! is all about child development. But it isn’t a long, incomprehensible psychology book about how you should raise your kids. Flush! does the hard work for you, using snappy statements and hilarious illustrations to create a contract for life that parents and kids can enjoy together.
