Questions Children Ask - and how to answer them
A parent's guide to answering the many difficult questions that young children are likely to ask.
Dr Miriam Stoppard believes that children must be told the truth. No-one, however, can assume that being frank and honest is always easy. This is why she felt it would be worth writing a book: not to supply advice by rote but to give a framework on which you can build your own answers as your child's understanding expands. A parent's guide to answering the many difficult questions that young children are likely to ask. Written by leading parenting and childcare expert Dr. Miriam Stoppard. Encompasses all the subjects that children are always curious about, from sexuality and reproduction to relationships, religion and death. Gives practical guidelines on how much to tell your child and what language to use. Provides appropriate answers for each age level from 2 to 4 years, 4 to 6 years, 6 to 8 years and 8 to 11 years.
NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
