Supporting parents in the quest to help their children learn as effectively and efficiently as possible, A Parent’s Guide to The Science of Learning translates 77 of the most important and influential studies on student learning into easily digestible overviews. This book will develop parents’ understanding of crucial psychological research so that they can help their children improve how they think, feel and behave in school (and, indeed, in life). Each overview summarises the key findings from the research and offers tips, hints and strategies for how you can use them in your home. Covering important areas such as memory, motivation, thinking biases and parental attitudes, this book makes complicated research simple, accessible and practical. From large- to small-scale studies, from the quirky to the iconic, this book breaks down key research to provide parents with the need-to-know facts. Essentially, it is a one-stop shop that offers guidance on how to parent even better. A Parent’s Guide to The Science of Learning answers the sort of questions that every parent wants to know but doesn’t know where to find the answers. This includes the small, everyday questions through to the big, life-changing ones. Some of the questions answered in this book include: How much sleep does your child need? Should I actually help them with their homework? Why does my child forget what they have just learnt? How much screen time is too much? What can I do to help them do better at school? Is it really that important that we all eat meals together? How can I help my child learn to better manage their emotions? How can I encourage them to be a better independent learner? A hugely accessible resource, this unique book will provide parents with the knowledge they need to best support their children’s learning and development.

One in six children in the developed world is diagnosed as having 'developmental or behavioural problems' - this book explains why and shows what can be done about it. Children throughout the developed world are suffering: instances of obesity, dyslexia, ADHD, bad behaviour and so on are all on the rise. And it's not simply that our willingness to diagnose has increased; there are very real and growing problems. Sue Palmer, a former head teacher and literacy expert, has researched a whole range of problem areas, from poor diet, lack of exercise and sleep deprivation to a range of modern difficulties that are having a major effect: television, computer games, mobile phones. This combination of factors, added to the increasingly busy and stressed life of parents, means that we are developing a toxic new generation. TOXIC CHILDHOOD illustrates the latest research from around the world and provides answers for worried parents as to how they can protect their families from the problems of the modern world and help ensure that their children emerge as healthy, intelligent and pleasant adults.

All About Children Questions Parents Ask

Being a parent is more challenging today than it’s ever been. In All About Children, this thoroughly reliable and effective handbook, clinical psychologist Dr Tony Humphreys outlines effective ways of parenting and positive responses to difficult behaviour by children. Sometimes the task of parenting seems overwhelming. At others it provides great fulfilment and joy. It is always unpredictable; the challenges are forever changing and much of what we might have learned from our own parents seems quite irrelevant now. Parenting is not learned by instinct; it requires many complex skills. Parents have responsibility for the physical, emotional, social, sexual, behavioural, educational, creative and spiritual development of their children, and at the same time they must love them unconditionally. Tony Humphreys recognises the many and varied challenges faced by parents today. In All About Children, he provides an invaluable resource for parents by taking the questions they most frequently ask and providing thoughtful and comprehensive answers. He begins by pointing out that in order to develop parenting skills, each parent must first understand themselves and be prepared to continually update their knowledge as the needs of their children alter as they grow older. He goes on to deal with the practical aspects of everyday parenting skills and then looks at different aspects of challenging behaviour, both by children and parents. The book concludes with a chapter on learning and education, two core concerns of every parent. In a helpful question-and-answer format, All About Children provides today’s parents with not only the vital information they require but also points out the skills they need to carry out their demanding task effectively. All About Children: Table of Contents Introduction Where does parenting begin? What roles do parents need to play? What are the skills needed for everyday parenting? How can parents best respond to children’s challenging behaviours? How can parents resolve their own challenging behaviours? How can parents prepare children for living their lives fully?
