Abstract/Notes: Executive functioning (inhibitory control, working memory, and mental flexibility) is less accessible to a brain on constant heightened alert for perceived threats (Center on the Developing Child, n.d.). In the fall of2022, for the first time ever, a task force assembled by the Department of Health and Human Services urged medical providers to screen all patients under 65 for anxiety (U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, 2022). Shifts toward chronic anxiety, both in ourselves and the children we serve, indicate that we need to use intentional tactics to promote mental health and emotional literacy, or the ability to identify, communicate, and process emotional experiences. In his book The Body Keeps the Score, Bessel Van der Kolk (2014) explains that a child's secure attachment with a caring adult from a very young age is the central factor in one's ability to overcome the adverse effects of trauma and develop a locus of control.

See More

Abstract/Notes: In this diverse world, parents and educators around the globe today face new challenges connecting with raising children. The Nigerian Igbo belief ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ can re-emerge as ‘It takes a multi-cultural perspective in the village that raises a child prepared for the culturally integrated world’. This book offers a multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary, and fresh, global perspective on parenting today by delving deep into the cultural, ethnic, and traditional characteristics of parenting, as well as the latest evidence-based scientific research on parenting a healthy child in every developmental stage for this era. Fascinating topics discussed here include connecting to an infant, potty training toddlers, teaching emotional regulation to preschoolers, task management of school-age children, dramatic transitions of tweens, and communicating effectively with an adolescent. Includes a section about Maria Montessori and Montessori education.
