The book is logical and well and well laid out.
Once the basic principal is explained there is a logical a-z list of behaviours / problems whereby the behaviours are identified ie “What it looks like” then follows a list of “Why it might happen” then some suggested “Preventative strategies”, then “ Stategies during” and finally suggested strategies how to deal with the behaviours afterwards /long term.
This book was clearly written from real life experience (although the author is clearly very well qualified in this field academically) and not written by someone with no real personal experience who has just obtained a theoretical degree obtained in a university. That is what makes this book stand out. The author knows the reality and not just the theory. She clearly appreciates, from experience, the major traumas children taken into care have suffered. She appreciates the behaviours children develop as a direct result of the negative experiences that have been inflicted upon them and offers practical advice to recognise, to understand, to help cope with and how to address the behaviours for the children’s long term wellbeing but also for the sanity of the parents. It’s not the child’s fault that they need extra help but the author offers more than sympathy, she offers ways of identifying the cause of the behaviour and practical way to address the problem.
If you have a child who has been through the care system or is currently in care this book is a “must buy”.
Sarah Naish writes in a down to earth, straightforward way sharing her experiences of parenting and bringing up 5 children ‘rescued’ from severe neglect. She talks about why children with early life trauma behave like they do, and how to parent them, calmly and effectively with empathy and understanding without blaming them for how they feel.
It really is like someone wrote an owners manual and trouble shoot guide for my child. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
