How Children Think

by the Staff of ACS Distance Learning

How Children Think eBook course online. Anyone who has ever tried to make a child do anything (clean up their mess, desist from throwing mud, stop drawing on the walls) knows that children think differently to adults. This book attempts to provide the skills and knowledge to develop a greater understanding of children.
 
How do children think? Children are on a constant path of development from conception to adulthood (and beyond). Understanding children from a psychological perspective can be of great assistance to adults, in order to help them support the children in their lives to develop into highly functioning adults – whether their own children, or in a professional or social environment.

This ebook attempts to provide the skills and knowledge to develop a greater understanding of children, and what is really going on for them. The first chapter discusses developmental stages in a child’s life, which is important for understanding what is to be expected and accepted at different points of a child’s development.

The next few chapters initiate the age-old discussion on the effects of nature and nurture on development. Chapter four provides insights into the importance of creating balance in a child’s life and chapter five discusses ways to change undesirable behaviour, providing practical solutions. Chapter six takes this a step further, going into problems and solutions of behaviour modification, as well as discussing issues such as abuse, bullying and deprivation.

The book concludes with a discussion on keeping up to date with constantly evolving research.

This book will provide valuable clues into the way children think, and useful keys to support development. We hope you enjoy it.
