Helping young children thrive
By Tamar Jacobson
Redleaf Press, 2018, 150 p.

Talks about children's need for attention and how adults (including teachers, parents, and caregivers) can respond appropriately. Discusses the importance of compassionate relationships, acknowledgement, and validation. Argues that attention-seeking should not be seen as misbehaviour, and giving children attention need not be interpreted as reinforcing bad behaviour.
