Now parents can take advantage of the training and experience of preschool teachers.
The book is filled with anecdotes and examples, tips and tools from the authors' years of experiences working with hundreds of young children. This lively real-life approach makes the authors' advice and ideas relatable and interesting.
Unlike many parenting books, this book takes a positive approach, rather than a "fix the problem" approach. The authors see young children as inherently competent-as people who are driven to learn and grow more competent in all areas of development: social, emotional, behavioral, cognitive, and creative. They guide caregivers in using the young child's own strengths and level of development to help their child grow and develop into the capable, confident young person they are striving to become.
Read this book for new insights into your preschool child, new (and surprising) ideas on how to enhance your child's everyday experiences, and new ways of thinking about your child. And enjoy many real-life examples and quotes of what preschoolers do, think, and say. Some of the quotes from the children will make readers burst out laughing, like this one from a four-year-old boy: "A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do." [dramatic pause] "Clean the dishes and cook."
Preschoolers are truly amazing people! Come along and enjoy them with us!
