You Are Your Child’s First Teacher was the first book in America to popularize the insights of Rudolf Steiner, founder of the Waldorf schools, regarding the developmental needs of young children. This revised and updated edition offers new ways for parents and educators to enrich the lives of children from birth to age six. Some of the most important learning years happen before your child reaches school. In You Are Your Child’s First Teacher, respected Waldorf educator Rahima Baldwin Dancy explains the different stages of learning that children go through from birth to age six, giving you the wisdom and understanding to enrich your child’s natural development in the right way at the right time. Today’s society often pressures us into overstimulating young children with flashcards, workbooks, videos, and electronic gadgets in a well-meaning attempt to give them a head start. But children are not little adults—they learn and grow in radically different ways at different ages, and what we do to help could actually hurt instead. A trusted classic for over twenty years, this newly revised edition contains updated resources and additional information on discipline, early childhood programs, toilet training, using home life as curriculum, and more. From language and cognitive develop-ment to appropriate toys and nourishing your child’s artistic abilities, Dancy speaks up for a rational approach to child-rearing, one that helps children be children while we fulfill our important role as parents and first teachers.

Awakening Children's Minds

Parents and teachers today face a swirl of conflicting theories about child rearing and educational practice. Indeed, current guides are contradictory, oversimplified, and at odds with current scientific knowledge. Now, in Awakening Children's Minds, Laura Berk cuts through the confusion of competing theories, offering a new way of thinking about the roles of parents and teachers and how they can make a difference in children's lives. This is the first book to bring to a general audience, in lucid prose richly laced with examples, truly state-of-the-art thinking about child rearing and early education. Berk's central message is that parents and teachers contribute profoundly to the development of competent, caring, well-adjusted children. In particular, she argues that adult-child communication in shared activities is the wellspring of psychological development. These dialogues enhance language skills, reasoning ability, problem-solving strategies, the capacity to bring action under the control of thought, and the child's cultural and moral values. Berk explains how children weave the voices of more expert cultural members into dialogues with themselves. When puzzling, difficult, or stressful circumstances arise, children call on this private speech to guide and control their thinking and behavior. In addition to providing clear roles for parents and teachers, Berk also offers concrete suggestions for creating and evaluating quality educational environments--at home, in child care, in preschool, and in primary school--and addresses the unique challenges of helping children with special needs. Parents, Berk writes, need a consistent way of thinking about their role in children's lives, one that can guide them in making effective child-rearing decisions. Awakening Children's Minds gives us the basic guidance we need to raise caring, thoughtful, intelligent children.

«Daniel Siegel y Tina Payne Bryson han escrito una guía magistral y fácil de leer para ayudar a desarrollar la inteligencia emocional de los niños. Este brillante método convierte las interacciones cotidianas en valiosas oportunidades para moldear el cerebro. Cualquiera que se preocupe por los niños –y que quiera a un niño– debería leer El cerebro del niño».Daniel Goleman, autor de Inteligencia emocional «Una completa guía que, desde un riguroso enfoque científico, descubre a los progenitores las oportunidades que diariamente les brinda una situación o una simple conversación para ayudar a sus hijos, de 0 a 12 años, a integrar todas las experiencias –buenas y malas– en su desarrollo vital y aprender de ellas para formarse como adultos.» Faro de Vigo Tu hijo de dos años tiene una rabieta en una tienda. Tu hijo de cuatro se niega a vestirse. Tu hijo de quinto curso está de suplente en el banquillo, enfurruñado, en lugar de jugar en el campo. ¿Acaso los niños conspiran para que la vida de sus padres sea un desafío continuo? No, lo que pasa es que su cerebro en desarrollo lleva la voz cantante. En este libro innovador y práctico, el neuropsiquiatra Daniel J. Siegel y la experta en educación infantil Tina Payne Bryson desmitifican las crisis y los conflictos, explicando los nuevos conocimientos científicos sobre cómo está constituido el cerebro infantil y cómo se desarrolla. Aplicando estos descubrimientos al día a día, es posible convertir conflictos, discusiones o miedos en una oportunidad para integrar el cerebro del niño y ayudarlo a ser una persona responsable, afectuosa y feliz. En El cerebro del niño padres y educadores tendrán a su alcance pautas claras para entender y manejar los distintos conflictos propios de los niños en función de cada edad, así como herramientas para resolverlos y ayudar a la familia a progresar.
