Children have a lot in common with flowers: To blossom, they must be properly nurtured; they all have different needs; and their differences make each one more beautiful.
Mattie Lee Solomon, Ph.D., who has dedicated her life to educating children, explores how educators and those who work with children, parents, and other family members can help youngsters reach their full potential in this guidebook.
She zeroes in on the social, emotional, and cognitive needs of children and explains how to:
· promote the importance of play;
· encourage children to develop trusting relationships;
· guide and discipline children; and
· focus on activities that help children learn.
She also highlights how teachers and family members can work together to create a better nurturing environment for children—one that pays attention to mind, body, and spirit.
Whether you’re an educator, someone else who works with children, a parent or other family member, you’ll be empowered to give children tools to grow and succeed with the insights in Nurture.
