Children who have experienced trauma, loss or separation early in life need more than just special care and attention; they need to be parented with love and security in a way that allows them to heal and rebuild emotional bonds. This comprehensive book provides parents and carers with crucial advice and guidance on how to strengthen attachment and trust. Based on Dan Hughes' proven 'PACE' model of therapeutic parenting, this book explains how to implement PACE techniques to overcome the challenges faced by children who struggle to connect emotionally. Barriers to stable relationships such as a lack of trust, fear of emotional intimacy, and high levels of shame are all explained. It explores techniques to overcome these barriers by teaching how to support the child's behaviour at the same time as building empathy and trust. The practical parenting guidance offered throughout is essential for carers or parents of troubled children, and will help build safe, secure emotional relationships.

Probing the shortcomings of contemporary early years provision, whilst offering practical and informed solutions, Early Childhood Education Redefined at once celebrates the progress made in this field since the publication of the ‘Start Right Report’ (1994), whilst also calling for further changes to ensure that all children are able to ‘start right’, to become effective, independent learners. Developing and emphasising the importance of concepts which have become overlooked within modern educational policy and practice, yet which remain key to our children’s development, this book considers how elements such as attachment and love; movement and exercise; and language and talk may be better integrated into early years practice via the three main vectors of parenting, the curriculum, and pedagogy. From a revised curriculum from birth to seven renamed Key Stage 1, to a greater emphasis on formative assessment, and the promotion of pedagogies including purposeful play, planning in the moment and attachment theory, chapters build on the principles set out in the ‘Start Right Report’ and take into consideration the research and reflection developed over the last quarter of a decade. Reopening a vital debate and challenging governments, education providers, parents and professionals to re-define what young children need to grow, develop and learn in our contemporary society, this timely response to the ‘Start Right Report’ is essential reading for all those involved in early years research, education and care.

Should you feed your baby whenever she wants or put her on a schedule? Do you impose consequences on children who don't do their homework or clean up their room, or do you help them with chores and homework? Should you respond to the difficult adolescent with tender love or tough love? Parents are faced every day with a multitude of decisions, and they worry about making the right choices. The Smart Love Parent offers a breakthrough method to parenting created and tested by the husband-and-wife team of Dr. Martha Heineman Pieper and Dr. William J. Pieper. The Piepers offer a new understanding of the entire sweep of child development, allowing you to view the process of growing up through your child's eyes. Their patient and caring approach avoids the extremes of permissiveness and of the old reward-and-punishment style of parenting that turns parents into disciplinarians. By offering a relaxed and realistic timetable for your child's development, they identify some previously unrecognized developmental milestones and show you how to help your child reach them through guiding, not punishing. If you understand your child's point of view, you can better know how to love her and how to respond to her actions. The Smart Love Parent helps parents cultivate a child's inner happiness, which is the best means of ensuring your child will grow up well behaved, responsible, self-confident, and able to reach his or her fullest potential.

Taking Parenting Public makes a compelling case that parenting has become dangerously undervalued in America today. It calls for a new investment—both personal and public—into the work of raising children and argues that we are all 'stockholders' in the next generation. With a foreword by Sylvia Ann Hewlett and Cornel West, Taking Parenting Public crosses boundaries to bring together thinkers from diverse fields spanning the political spectrum. It features contributions from distinguished experts in economics, political science, public policy, child development, public health, history, and the media. While recent books have focused on working mothers or absent fathers, Taking Parenting Public is the first volume to take a comprehensive look at the common struggles of parents. These essays go beyond the usual chest-beating about busy parents torn between work and family demands to suggest bold solutions. Instead of the typical call for 'parent replacement'—more child care, more after school programs and more mentors—the contributors offer fresh strategies for 'parent replenishment,' ways to put mothers and fathers back into the lives of their children not only as economic providers, but also as emotional and moral providers.

Being a parent is more challenging today than it’s ever been. In All About Children, this thoroughly reliable and effective handbook, clinical psychologist Dr Tony Humphreys outlines effective ways of parenting and positive responses to difficult behaviour by children. Sometimes the task of parenting seems overwhelming. At others it provides great fulfilment and joy. It is always unpredictable; the challenges are forever changing and much of what we might have learned from our own parents seems quite irrelevant now. Parenting is not learned by instinct; it requires many complex skills. Parents have responsibility for the physical, emotional, social, sexual, behavioural, educational, creative and spiritual development of their children, and at the same time they must love them unconditionally. Tony Humphreys recognises the many and varied challenges faced by parents today. In All About Children, he provides an invaluable resource for parents by taking the questions they most frequently ask and providing thoughtful and comprehensive answers. He begins by pointing out that in order to develop parenting skills, each parent must first understand themselves and be prepared to continually update their knowledge as the needs of their children alter as they grow older. He goes on to deal with the practical aspects of everyday parenting skills and then looks at different aspects of challenging behaviour, both by children and parents. The book concludes with a chapter on learning and education, two core concerns of every parent. In a helpful question-and-answer format, All About Children provides today’s parents with not only the vital information they require but also points out the skills they need to carry out their demanding task effectively. All About Children: Table of Contents Introduction Where does parenting begin? What roles do parents need to play? What are the skills needed for everyday parenting? How can parents best respond to children’s challenging behaviours? How can parents resolve their own challenging behaviours? How can parents prepare children for living their lives fully?
