Creating Balance in Your Child's Life

( 2 )

Overview

Instead of spending time exploring, playing, and relaxing with family members, many children's weekly schedules rival that of a CEO. Music lessons, computer courses, excessive schoolwork—even playtime is structured into planned "play dates." Time is treated as a scarce commodity, and children are feeling the strain.

Overview

Instead of spending time exploring, playing, and relaxing with family members, many children's weekly schedules rival that of a CEO. Music lessons, computer courses, excessive schoolwork—even playtime is structured into planned "play dates." Time is treated as a scarce commodity, and children are feeling the strain. Many children are exhibiting signs of stress such as sleep problems, nervous exhaustion, nail-biting, hyperactivity, eating disorders, and aggressive feelings. Beth Wilson Saavedra explains how parents can create a healthier balance in their child's life by identifying each child's unique temperament and reshaping their schedules to include time for relaxing and discovering activities and experiences on their own. By creating a balance between free time and structured activities, parents can help their children feel less stress, be less rushed, and give them the opportunity to "just be kids."Children are now more often experiencing the symptoms of stress, such as aggressive behavior, sleep problems, and eating disorders Provides tools for parents to identify each child's individual temperament and tailor the best balance of free and structured time to the child's personality

    Full of great teachings all should know.

    I just finished this book and it was full of wonderful teachings to apply to children. It equipped me with a new set of eyes for observing and guiding children into a balanced and healthy life. On-top of the abundance of information this book provided it was full of helpful references on specific topics which was very helpful as well. I would recommend this book to anyone that has children or works with them in anyway.

    A reviewer

    What a wonderful book! It is a holistic, comprehensive, user-friendly tool for parents, teachers and health care practitioners. Beth is an intelligent and down to earth writer. She acknowledges children with the same respect as adults and reminds us that children are the bearers of light. If we provide the right environment for them, they will be illuminated throughout their lives.
