This accessible book provides a wealth of information to help parents, educators and carers better relate to children at this exciting, yet demanding, stage of development. From the new-found sense of rivalry between siblings or classmates, to the anxieties children feel when making new friends, Corinne Aves offers guidance on encouraging children's development and helping them to cope with changing expectations of their behaviour. She discusses the various struggles in these children's lives - such as the conflict between a child's continuing desire to please his parents and the pressure to follow the leads of his friends - and gives tips for supporting children's increasing understanding of morality.
