This enlightening, superbly written series of articles describes the functions of the human brain and explains how parents can use this information in the day-to-day parenting of their children. Parenting is without doubt the world’s most complex form of work. Ironically, this important endeavour requires no formal training or skill development. Neither does it pay wages. Yet, to oversee the development of another person – a person driven by the incredible complexity of the brain – is surely the most important role one could ever play during their lifetime. It is the purpose of this series of articles to examine the role of parenting in detail and to suggest some ways of increasing the knowledge and skills parents and caregivers already have for building successful lives with their children.
Writers include John Joseph, Dr John Langrehr, Kate Krieg. Articles available by subscription.
Articles focus on the learning process as it applies to success at school and in life beyond formal education. We explore the emotional development of children and examine the general health and wellbeing that help fashion the path to success. We will examine the critical roles of nutrition, water, exercise, play and sleep in children’s development. Each article will address specific issues. Week-by-week the collection will grow into a fantastic resource that answers the most commonly asked questions from parents. For example, Is punishment the best method for inspiring our children to change their behaviour? How can parents contribute to the schooling experience of their children? What can children do to improve their educational experiences? How might we use our knowledge of the human brain to construct and reconstruct formal education so that it better reflects our beliefs? What are learning styles and how do they impct on children’s motivational levels? What foods are best for growing children? How much sleep is just right for a child? How do we help our children to live their lives with optimism? What does ‘gifted and talented’ actually mean? What is genetic and what is environmental? How do we support our children through the senior secondary years.
