I am feeling bad because I haven’t been here blogging… but just to let you know, All About Tantrums (Why we have them; How to prevent them: What to do when they happen.) Is very close to being out! I checked the proof copy today and will get a few changes made over the next few weeks. So, right on schedule for being available in June. I’m looking at pricing it at around $15-20 US.
The back of the book says:
Although it can seem that all tantrums are the same, Karyn Van Der Zwet suggest that there are several different kinds and these can be grouped into two main categories: Reaction Tantrums and Processing Tantrums. She describes how the brain and body really work to maintain homeostasis and how we,at a biological level, learn to be pro-social no matter which culture we are born into.
‘All About Tantrums’ covers: Attention Seeking, Boredom, Transitions, Frustration Tantrums, Possession Tantrums, Over-Excitement, Over-Whelmed Tantrums, The Witching Hour, Jealousy, Wilfulness and more.
‘All About Tantrums’ both draws on the strengths of common parenting styles and challenges their weaknesses. It provides practical strategies to help the reader prevent and manage tantrum behaviours.
