Synopsis

Everything a child needs to grow up to be healthy and happy.  

WHAT ARE A CHILD’S DEEPEST NEEDS?

What is vital for a child’s development? Modern neuroscience has radically changed our thinking in this respect. We now know that infants do not throw tantrums on purpose or deliberately set out to thwart their parents; they need empathy and love. 

THE BOOK’S GUIDING PRINCIPLE

Dr. Catherine Gueguen’s new picture book gives children a voice to open a dialog with their parents: “I need you to listen to me with all your focus on me”; “I need you to encourage me without stepping in and taking over.”

IN PRAISE OF KINDNESS

The child guides us through her needs, explaining that we need to encourage her to become autonomous, that she cannot self-soothe, and that telling her off while an emotional storm is raging is counterproductive.

The key message is that raising happy, healthy children takes infinite kindness. That is the secret to helping their brains develop, making for balanced, confident adults.
