Parenting is Forever

A paediatrician's tips for parents, teachers and carers

By Elizabeth Green

Believe and trust in your children. But most of all, be kind. Parents ask, 'Why are children so anxious?', 'Has my child got autism?' 'How do I calm a screaming baby, yelling child or angry teenager?' and 'What can I do when my child wants to die?' Anxiety, autism, ADHD, and learning problems make school hard. Depression, self-harm, cyberbullying and eating disorders are part of our complex lives. Stress, busyness, and a digital world have changed parenting. Parenting is Forever reflects the ongoing conversations of paediatrician, Dr. Elizabeth Green, with those who care for children. It is influenced by her experience as a parent and from helping more than 30,000 families over twenty-five years. Dr. Green shares her practical tips for navigating the developmental stages of childhood. From before birth, through early childhood and adolescence to adulthood. Parenting is not a competition. It's okay to fail and try again. That's what makes us better parents. *** "Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, 'Parenting is Forever' is an invaluable resource, especially for new parents and parents of children with behavioral issues. Thoroughly 'parent friendly' in tone and commentary, 'Parenting is Forever' will prove to be an enduringly appreciated and valued addition to personal reading lists and community library Parenting instructional reference collections." --The Midwest Book Review, Library Bookwatch, The Parenting Shelf, March 2018 [Subject: Parenting Guide, Childhood Care]
