A book for the Why’s. It’s wonderful the way children are constantly asking ‘why?’ about the world, but it can be very exhausting for adults.
This book offers a way for teachers, parents and carers of primary aged children to improve the quality of life not only for themselves but more importantly for the children whose futures they are helping to build.
Why do we teach what we teach? What should we be teaching a developing child, about themselves and their future? Why do so many children disengage from school, lack confidence or have low self esteem?
‘A Short and Simple Book for the Why’s’ draws on 30 years teaching and life experience and puts in a nutshell the lessons, tips, reasons and activities that are helpful in encouraging children’s core development and causing them to excel, giving them a sense of purpose, satisfaction and responsibility. It is a useful reference for parents who want to protect their children’s enthusiasm for learning.
Author of this Book for the Why’s
Gail says: “My books draw on 30 years of teaching and life experience. It took me at least 15 years to understand how children work and think and then another 15 years to work out what they need at core to help them excel. Parents do not have this time advantage. As soon as a child is born, they have to ‘hit the ground running’ and many have told me they are dogged by doubt and worry about the way they are raising their children. My books hold the lessons, tips, reasons and activities that I have found helpful in encouraging children’s development and causing them to excel.
