Discover the proven ways parents can help their children learn, overcome adversity, get along with others, and become independent—while you relax and enjoy being a parent How do children thrive? As a parent, you probably think about this all the time. You want your children to have happy, healthy, and meaningful lives—but what’s the best way to support them? In How Children Thrive, developmental pediatrician and parent Dr. Mark Bertin provides a positive, simple, and empowering approach for raising children of all ages. Bringing together mindfulness, new science on brain development, and the messy reality of being a parent, Dr. Bertin has a created a breakthrough guide that will help children—and their parents—flourish. Research has shown that the key to raising resilient, kind, and independent children lies in executive function, our mental capacity to manage just about everything in life. “Despite its wonky, overly scientific name, there is nothing complicated about building executive function,” Dr. Bertin writes. “It’s actually a lot more straightforward and less anxiety-provoking than most of the parenting advice out there.” Through concise, easily applied chapters, Dr. Bertin provides simple strategies for helping your children develop healthy EF while taking care of yourself and enjoying your family. Highlights include: Mindfulness—how it directly builds EF and how to incorporate mindful practices for the whole family The importance of free play, the science behind it, and how to encourage more of it Technology—how much is too much? At what age is screen time OK? Help your kids have a healthy relationship with media. Create simple routines that support independence around homework, nutrition, sleep, friendships, and more Age-appropriate advice for toddlers, teens, and even your twenty-somethings Limits and discipline: How to determine—and stick with—consequences for unwanted behavior Understand markers for whether your child is developmentally on track or if extra support might be needed Find the advice you need when you need it with short, independent chapters full of concrete practices Bring more calm, ease, and joy to your parenting while taking care of yourself—even when family life gets chaotic Give yourself permission to make mistakes and adapt along the way “The pressure to be the perfect parent is overwhelming,” writes Dr. Bertin, “but the truth is the job is too challenging and varied to ever be done to perfection.” With compassion and reassurance, Dr. Bertin presents a relaxed, instinctual, and evidence-based approach to raising children who thrive.

In a world that’s changing at warp speed, our kids will need to navigate a path to success without a roadmap – something entrepreneurs do every day. What if we looked to the world of entrepreneurship, in addition to child development experts, for insights on helping kids gain the skills they’ll need in order to prosper personally and professionally? Raising Can-Do Kids is the first book to make a link between the essential qualities that make great entrepreneurs tick and what we know about how children learn and grow, offering parents proven ways to raise kids who embrace the uncertain, challenging adventure that is growing up in today’s (and tomorrow’s) changing world. Each chapter is devoted to a quality – including curiosity, inventiveness, optimism, opportunity-seeking, compassion, and service -- and reveals how parents can nurture these qualities. Filled with engaging examples and actionable insights, Raising Can-Do Kids introduces a timely new paradigm for parents—one that will help “future-proof” our children and set them up for success on their own terms.

Toddlers thrive outside. The special nature of the outdoors suits their interests down to the ground, yet for this age group the value of play is probably least understood. This captivating footage shows clearly what's so special about the outdoors and why it's essential for toddlers. It also shows how and why adults are so vital to their experiences outside. By following six one year olds as they play outside, this film illustrates the rich experiences that are important to them. It shows what toddlers want and need to do. By getting to know each child we'll see what sort of things interest them most, and why. Through watching them we see what is going on for them physically, emotionally, socially and cognitively as links are made to child development for the second year of life. What becomes evident is that they all broadly follow the same developmental trends but that each has his or her own particular schematic themes or patterns of action. It makes clear that movement and exploration is the focus for this year and that experiences develop both the brain and the body inseparably. This film will make adults want to take toddlers outside as we see the children's delights and discoveries so obviously helping their well being, learning and development. The film has been made in conjunction with outdoors specialist Jan White.
