This title is a Channel 4 TV tie-in, which examines the development of children between the ages of two and 12. Focusing on behaviour and the mind, it charts the achievements that mark the journey to becoming a fully-fledged person. Illustrated with full-colour photographs, the book examines how children gain a sense of self; navigate the social world; learn the vital skill of lying; make sense of the physical world; come to understand life, death and sex; and reach full independence.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This definitive textbook provides accessible information on best practice for assessing the needs and strengths of vulnerable children and their families. It explores the challenges that practitioners face routinely - with suggestions as to how to address them - as well as the established areas for assessment, of children's developmental needs, parenting ability and motivation, and socio-economic factors. This new edition has been extended substantially to include recent practice, policy and theoretical developments, such as understanding the lived experience of children, young people, and family members. It also considers children's neurological development, assessing parental capacity to change, early help assessments, emerging areas of practice such as child sexual exploitation, and working with asylum-seeking and trafficked children. Crucially, this updated edition takes a broader approach in offering relevant information to a range of professionals working with vulnerable children. The importance of inter-professional working is emphasised throughout.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book discusses the languages of illness which we use to present our discomforts to others through an exploration of the child's world of illness. It looks at how illness concepts are introduced to children, how the causes of illness and 'germ' rationales are incorporated into the socialisation of children, and how a particular morality about health and illness is expressed.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Stimulated by the publication of The Nurture Assumption by Judith Rich Harris, Parenting and the Child's World was conceived around the notion that there are multiple sources of influence on children's development, including parenting behavior, family resources, genetic and other biological factors, as well as social influences from peers, teachers, and the community at large. The text's 39 contributors search for when, where, and how parenting matters and the major antecedents and moderators of effective parenting. The chapters focus on the major conceptual issues and empirical approaches that underlie our understanding of the importance of parenting for child development in academic, socio-emotional, and risk-taking domains. Additional goals are to show how culture and parenting are interwoven, to chart future research directions, and to help parents and professionals understand the implications of major research findings.
