Keeping Five to Twelve Year Olds on the Rails
The long-awaited sequel to the bestselling Toddler Taming
The long-awaited sequel to the bestseller and backlist star Toddler Taming
Beyond Toddlerdom is the book every parent needs when their child isn't a toddler any more.
In the years between toddlerdom and adolescence, the rate of your child's growth and development will escalate dramatically. You will find it more and more challenging to keep up with the changes as your child starts primary school and develops new skills, becomes more social and more worldly. Family life at this time can seem like a roller coaster ride of ups and downs, but with Dr Green's help your family will stay on the rails.
Beyond Toddlerdom is packed with practical, commonsense advice. In his trademark warm and friendly style Dr Green shares his secrets for successful parenting and shows us how children think, feel and behave. He covers all the issues of this challenging 'in-between time', including:
A-Z of children's behaviours
Positive discipline and how to put it into practice
Starting school and developing school skills
Confident children: beating shyness and making friends
How to have healthy children now - and prevent
problems in later life
Sole parenting, step families and other family issues
Talking about sex and death
TV and the Internet
Beyond Toddlerdom is not about 'taming', 'compliance' and 'perfect behaviours', it is a book about relationships - the art of keeping parents close and in love with their children. If we achieve this, the rest will usually fall into place.
