By Priscilla Dunstan
Would you like to 'speak' to your baby? Are you worried about abnormal bad behaviour? Or surprised by how different your toddler's temperament is to your own? Most of the everyday conflicts that plague families stem simply from a communication gap between parent and child. Famous for her life-changing system of 'baby language', in Child Sense Priscilla Dunstan extends her focus to the first 5 years of life, revealing how best to interpret your child's behaviour and maximise their potential for success and happiness in life.With hands-on experience as a mum, as well as 8 years of practical one-on-one work as a family therapist, Priscilla's revolutionary insight is to identify that each of us is born with one dominant sense mode - seeing, hearing, touching, or tasting and smelling. And that this exercises a profound influence on the way we experience the world and communicate our needs to those around us. Whether you have a visual child, who is always concerned with how things look, or a tactile child, who is physical and practical and responds best to clear, direct suggestions, Priscilla offers invaluable advice about everything from toilet training to temper tantrums, from sleepless nights to problem eating. And she has a repertoire of tips and techniques to help you interpret your little one's behaviour, and adapt your parenting style to suit their temperament. With real-life case studies, checklists and personality quizzes, Child Sense reveals how learning one thing about your child could change both your lives.
Creating Kids Who Can Concentrate
By Jean Robb & Hilary Letts, Hilary Letts
This book is about success and transformation. It shows how, with patience and energy, parents and teachers can turn a child who is noisy, clumsy and forgetful into a child who is calm, careful, thoughtful and attentive - without the aid of drugs which are so often and controversially prescribed for what is labelled ADD. With their groundbreaking methods, Jean Robb and Hilary Letts have had impressive results and in this practical and realistic book they show how to effectively develop a child's potential in a remarkably short time. Giving their expert guidance on dealing with disruptive or bizarre behaviour, they also show how to bring on a child's innate skills - and how every child is capable of overcoming the problem - and the label.
