Overview

Read Nancy Carlsson-Paige's posts on the Penguin Blog



Based on early-childhood development expert Nancy Carlsson-Paige’s thirty years of researching young children, this
groundbreaking book helps parents navigate the cultural currents shaping, and too often harming, kids today—and
restore childhood to the best of what it can be. As Carlsson-Paige explains, there are three attributes critical to kids’
healthy development: time and space for creative play, a feeling of safety in today’s often frightening world, and
strong, meaningful relationships with both adults and other children—attributes that we, as a society, are failing to
protect and nurture. From advising parents on which toys foster creativity (and which stifle it) to guiding them in how
to use “power-sharing” techniques to resolve conflicts and generate empathy, Carlsson-Paige offers hands-on steps
parents can take to create a safe, open, and imaginative environment in which kids can relish childhood and flourish as
human beings.
