Parenting is Forever: A paediatrician's tips for parents, teachers and carers
`Believe and trust in your children. But most of all, be kind.' Parents ask, `Why are children so anxious?', `Has my child got autism?', `How do I calm a screaming baby, yelling child, or angry teenager?', and `What can I do when my child wants to die?' Anxiety, autism, ADHD, and learning problems make school hard. Depression, self-harm, cyberbullying, and eating disorders are part of our complex lives. Stress, busyness, and a digital world changes parenting. Parenting is Forever reflects the ongoing conversations of a paediatrician with those who care for children. It is influenced by her experience as a parent and from helping more than 30,000 families over twenty-five years. Dr Elizabeth Green shares her practical tips for navigating the developmental stages of childhood. From before birth, through early childhood and adolescence, to adulthood. Parenting is not a competition. It's okay to fail and try again. That's what makes us better parents.
