Questions Children Ask & How to Answer ThemBook - 1997
Everyone has questions -- but children need special answers. When confronted by a five-year-old asking, "How are babies made?" or "What does dead mean?" do you flounder for the right answer? In Questions Children Ask, Dr. Miriam Stoppard provides honest, sensitive answers allowing the parent or caregiver to tailor their replies to the child's level of maturity and comprehension. Questions are grouped into topics ranging from sexuality and babies, divorce and drugs, to violence, abuse and death. Each question page is set up with alternative answers depending on the child's age and loaded with full-colour illustrations. Questions Children Ask offers practical advice that enables parents and caregivers to guide children on how to deal with difficult situations -- the death of a grandparent or a bully in the playground -- and may also alert them to questions that could indicate a child's hidden fear or cry for help. This indispensable book will help any caregiver to be responsive and sensitive to the unique concerns of children as they come to grips with their bodies and the world around them.
