The book provides information to help parents, educators and carers better relate to children at the age of six to seven. It offers guidance on encouraging children's development and helping them cope with changing expectations of their behaviour. It gives tips for supporting children's understanding of morality. What challenges do six and seven year-olds face as they learn new skills and face different social situations? How do their perceptions of the world change? How can we best support them in their move towards greater independence?

Chapters on both school and family life explain the need for discipline and order in 'middle childhood', while specific areas of development such as reading skills and learning difficulties are addressed with sensitivity and insight. "Understanding 6-7-Year-Olds" will prove an enlightening read for anyone hoping to better understand children at this important stage of their lives.
