Book:Self-reg, how to help your child (and you) break the stress cycle and successfully engage with life:2016
Author: Shanker, Shanker
Author: Barker, Teresa
Year: 2016
Language: English
Type: Book
Class Number: 649.1
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Yellow Kite
Physical or Electronic: Physical
ISBN: 9781444788686
Note: Today's children are under serious stress - they are under pressure to succeed at school, pressure to fit in, and in regard to social media. Stress can also come from day-to-day-life, and affect even very young children: too much noise, being rushed, separation anxiety - the list of potential stressors is long. When kids are stressed and anxious, they often struggle to articulate what is troubling them and either start to misbehave, or else shut down and fail to communicate at all. This is often construed as 'bad behaviour' by parents, and treated as such. In this parenting book, Stuart Shanker argues that teaching children the art of self-regulation will transform their behaviour by helping them to identify, talk about and manage their emotions.
