'Understanding how the areas of your child's brain interact and impact on one another and, therefore, your child's behaviour and experience of the world, is absolutely crucial to your ability to parent them in a caring, considerate and empathetic way. In turn, how you do that in their first five years will have a profound impact on the rest of their lives.'
There has never been a more essential time for the definitive book on parenting our 0-5 year-olds. This practical guide, from BBC broadcaster, trainee children's counsellor and mother of two Kate Silverton is rooted in the latest research into the science of child brain development. By understanding their child's developmental stages, parents will come to realise that there is no such thing as 'naughty' in the traditional sense and will be equipped to react in the best way to their child's behaviour.
Kate will show the reader:
- The secret to stopping a temper tantrum in seconds
- How parents can 'build' their children's brains
- How to rescue the relationship between time-poor parents and compromised kids
- Tips and tricks - from 'CODE REDs' to 'Stop S.N.O.T' - that will transform the way you parent
This engaging, authentic, authoritative and fun parenting guide puts children at the heart of every page and demystifies parenting for readers of any background or circumstance. There's No Such Thing as Naughty sets out to hold the hand of any parent who feels they may have lost their way, or any parent who is just starting out.
