When children can’t handle big emotions, their instincts take over. It’s the call of the wild that says: If in doubt, come out fighting! Without thinking, they release their inner monkey. Our children go into the jungle and sometimes we fell like we’re swinging through the trees with them.
This book will help you recognise when your children enter the jungle and will give you strategies to lead them out of it. It might even give you a chuckle when you start to recognise the jungle in other adults… maybe even your boss!
Dr Brenda Heyworth is a child and adolescent psychiatrist who’s shaped her knowledge and experience into a parenting approach that makes sense. It’s a Jungle is a parent’s guide to managing difficult behaviour but anyone dealing with children or teens can relate to this practical yet humorous perspective.
