Learn what children think.
What goes on inside those minds of theirs?
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 e-book attempts to provide the skills and knowledge to develop a greater understanding of children, and what is really going on for them.
