for Parents and Early Childhood
WITHOUT DAMAGE by Dr. Vanessa Lapointe
This is a must-read for parents and Early Childhood
Educators. Outstanding and reader friendly, Dr. Lapointe explains her
connection-based approach to discipline and how this is connected to brain
development. Her approach is respectful and certainly advocates children’s
human rights for a quality life. Dr. Lapointe understands the challenges
parents face day to day, her advice is insightful and helpful. Dr. Lapointe explains what children need and
how to use a connection-based approach, thus enabling parents to meet their
children’s needs without damaging their emotional development. The book is
designed for parents but Early Childhood Educators will appreciate this
valuable book – whether to apply to your workplace or to recommend to parents.
Dr. Vanessa Lapointe, thank you for your book.
THE BOY WHO RAISED AS A DOG
by Bruce Perry and Maia Szalavitz
This is the book I started and within the first two pages
started writing notes, and by the second read through, a power point
presentation for my staff and my ECE class. A powerful read addressing the
worst case realities behind maltreated children’s behaviour. The book explains
the trauma and the recovery as well as what happens to a child’s brain when
stressed. Bruce Perry and Maia Szalavitz,
thank you for your book.
