Description

Based on the work of one of the world’s foremost child development experts, Rest, Play, Grow offers a road map to making sense of young children, and is what every toddler, preschooler, and kindergartner wishes we understood about them. 

Foreword by Gordon Neufeld, PhD 

Baffling and beloved, with the capacity to go from joy to frustration in seconds, young children are some of the most misunderstood people on the planet. Parents and caregivers struggle with these little ones, who are known for their extreme behaviour, from tantrums, resistance, and aggression to separation anxiety, bedtime protests, and not listening. The key to understanding youngsters lies in realizing that their challenging behaviour is not personal, nor is it a disorder or deficit. 

Based on science and the relational developmental approach of renowned psychologist and bestselling author Gordon Neufeld, Rest, Play, Grow reveals how critical it is for adults to create the relational conditions to grow young children through a unique period in their lives. This is the story of how young children develop, from their intense need for attachment and the vital importance of play to discipline that preserves growth. Engagingly written, with compassion for its subjects and rich with stories from them and their parents, Rest, Play, Grow will forever change the way you think of the preschoolers in your life. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

So helpful!!!

Having long been a fan of Dr. Neufeld's work, I was so happy to come across this book. Dr. MacNamara shares so much practical wisdom here that I'm sure to listen to it again and again. I wish everyone with preschool children would have the opportunity to hear the thoughtful approach to raising children. I have a clearer understanding of why my child behaves the way she does and have useful strategies to support us both while we go through life's up and downs together.

The missing link

This is the missing information that most of us parents wish we had but struggle to discover. This book gets to the heart of how our children can feel happy and secure and attached to us.
I wish I had been sent home from the hospital with this after my daughter was born.

The biggest takeaway is that we can Repair our relationships with our children and help them heal and move forward. We can encourage their growth and heal ourselves by learning with them.

Required reading!

This book is fantastic and helping to unpack the behavior of young children and everyone at that. It discusses the motivations behind the behaviors of young children and logically discusses why behavior theory discipline practices may work in the beginning but serve to make a parents job much harder in the end. Not to mention the fact that we are all preschoolers deep inside at some point or other helps Once you realize motivations for why adults act certain ways or even why you act a certain way at times.

hard to listen to the reader

the reader sounds like a robot. words repeat. audio clips were recorded in different environments so when they pieced them together the splices are obvious.
