One Step Ahead

Good parenting isn't instinctive, it is something we learn by trial and error. But a little guidance on what to expect from young children goes a long way to helping you to be confident and effective. Michael Grose identifies the behavioural and developmental issues that most often cause concern and shows you how to work through them by: - Understanding your child's behaviour and individuality - Teaching your child social and physical skills - Giving your child the freedom to learn from mistakes - Encouraging your child's sense of responsibility and self-discipline - Involving your child in family decision-making and conflict resolution - Communicating positively and acknowledging achievements - Establishing routines - and getting your kids to stick to them. A parenting expert and father of three, Michael Grose provides helpful and practical advice on all sorts of specific problems, from bed-wetting to fussy eaters, from swearing and tantrums to making friends, all laid out alphabetically for easy reference. He outlines the various stages and ages at which these problems are likely to occur and shows you how to keep your cool by staying one step ahead! Finally, he includes a section on bullying and a chapter on puberty and beyond.
