Abstract:

Provides a definitive guide to help parents deal with their children's difficult questions about sex, self-esteem, death, drugs, and other critical issues, explaining how to gain a child' confidence, when to talk about various key topics, how to simplify a complex subject for children of various age groups, and more. Nonverbal Learning Disorder prevents children from understanding nonverbal cues like tone of voice and facial expressions. Though they are extremely bright, these children often have difficulty in social situations and can become depressed, withdrawn or anxious. In this book, a pediatric occupational therapist and the parent of a child with NLD offers practical suggestions that will help parents put their child on the path to a happy, fulfilling life. Where do babies come from? What happens to people when they die? Have you ever used drugs? Why did you get divorced? From toddlers to teens, children are full of questions. How do you answer them? Do you stammer and clam up? Are you truthful? Too truthful? While we all want to give the right answers, we do not always know whether to be detailed or discreet, protective or honest. Getting Through to Your Kids is a parent?s personal advisor, a compendium of words to use when you are at loss. Drawn from the advice and experiences of dozens of psychological, medical, and educational experts, as well as countless parents, this timely and telling book offers answers to all the questions kids are bound to ask. You will learn how to jumpstart a conversation and simplify complicated topics on how to know the best age for kids to learn about sex, drugs, and other difficult subjects, why once is not always enough, and why some topics need to be revisited. Whether some questions are best left unanswered and how to gain a child?s confidence so you can talk about anything.
