In this practical, easy-to-implement guide, specialist child psychologist Dr Sarah Hughes gives you the tools you need for every age and stage of your child’s development.
Focusing on six key areas:
- challenging behaviour
- emotions and tantrums
- social skills and friendships
- parenting well through separation and divorce
You’ll learn all the do’s and don’ts, and discover effective techniques for raising well-adjusted children.
Dr Hughes uses real-world examples and scenarios to delve deep into the emotional and behavioural development of children, including rooting out just why kids can’t always behave well (hint: because their brains haven’t finished developing yet).
From how to reward positive behaviour to the best way to set rules and guidelines, Parenting Made Simple offers a warm and common-sense approach all parents can benefit from.
Dr Sarah Hughes has 10 years of clinical experience, completing her training at the University of Sydney and holds a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and a PhD in child and adolescent anxiety disorders. Sarah founded Think Clinical Psychologists and is the author of ‘Skip the Drama’ (Exisle).
