This book will offer some ideas that will help you to understand children better. People are complex and children are perhaps even more so, as they by definition are learning, developing and changing constantly and rapidly. Add to this the fact that each child’s situation and history is unique, and it’s obvious that the better equipped you are to understand, the more likely you are to be able to contribute something useful and to help support the child’s learning and development.

What Will I Learn?

  • To better understand children and equip them to become well-adjusted, more adaptable adults who are capable of living rich and varied lives.
  • To help children through crises and enrich their daily lives by interacting with them in ways that are appropriate to their developmental levels.
