THE WITNESS BRINGS A NEW DIMENSION TO THE GENRE OF TRUE CRIME LITERATURE, PIECING TOGETHER SHARDS OF PERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCES AND CRITICAL LIFE EVENTS, SO OFTEN SWEPT UNDER THE RUG OF FAMILY SHAME OR NEGLECT, REVEALING HOW THE PAST CASTS A GRAVE SHADOW OVER ONE’S FUTURE.
CSI has long since rolled up the tape but the investigation isn’t over. Detectives cool their heels from pounding the pavement but, the interviews have just started. The suspects – charged and booked – are left to contemplate their fate. The key to their future lies in the past; while the crime is solved, one question remains:
WHAT IS JUSTICE?
PARENTS AND PROFESSIONALS ARE OFTEN CONFRONTED BY THE COLLEAGUES OF CHILDREN BECAUSE THEY ARE SMARTER THAN WE THINK.
Your Child Is Smarter Than You Think! bridges the gap between how children think and learn and how they feel and behave. Dr. Wanda Draper discusses a whole child approach to articulate the child’s development and its relationship to behavior and learning from infancy through adolescence. Based on thirty years of experience with thousands of children of all ages, and their parents and teachers, she suggests simple yet powerful ways to help children achieve success in school and life. She says, “You can’t send the head to school and leave the body at home–the whole child goes to school, the whole child lives at home, and the whole child participates in the world.”
A RESOURCE FOR NANNIES AND PARENTS WHEN ADDING
A “NEW MEMBER OF THE FAMILY.”
The world has changed with the unexpected pandemic of COVID-19. A life-threatening virus turned our lives upside down. In the market place, with new technologies, and in the homes and schools of families and children, we now face a different kind of world. The nanny plays a central role in helping families meet the unexpected needs for health and safety while their children continue to grow and learn in new environments never before imagined.
POST COVID-19 WORLD BRINGS NEW CHALLENGES TO CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES.
Living and Working with Children provides a resource for parents and professionals to help children, our harbingers of the future, learn how to navigate transitions between the technological era of the present and the digital era already approaching and forging a new world. They will need the skills and know-how to live with challenging changes in monetary systems, telecommunications, healthcare programs and food supply chains that require adaptations in homes and communities in order to maintain a quality of life.
