New Book Helps Parents Understand the Needs of Children - How To Grow Kids

Author Wendy Iscove dives into the minds of children in her new book “How to Grow Kids…From the Heart of Andy”

Author and educator, Wendy Iscove, has released her debut book “How to Grow Kids…From the Heart of Andy”. Uniquely written from a child’s perspective, this new format of pictures and words will help both parents and their children learn about each other as they share and talk about each scenario.

After spending over thirty years working with teachers and students, Ms. Iscove is considered a Master Teacher and early educational consultant and saw firsthand the challenges which arise in meeting the daily needs of children. As a result, she thought to create an illustrated guide to help parents gain a deeper understanding of those needs. 

How to Grow Kids is a full collection of illustrations which are explained from the voice of a child and laid out in ways both parents and their children will understand. Designed to be read and enjoyed by parents and their children, each chapter offers concrete tools and solutions to help children grow emotionally and socially stronger.

The 411:

They say children don't come with manuals well now they do! How to Grow Kids from the Heart of Andy is an easy to read bible for being the best parent you can be. I loved it and looked at it as a parent and an educator who put the child before my needs. This is exactly what your child or a child in your care would tell you if they knew how. 

The book is broken down into three chapters:

To Feel Safe and Calm
To Have Order and Boundaries 
To Give Love and Feel Love  

Each chapter give you practical, easy and necessary tips to "grow" a mentally healthy child who is hopefully, eventually self sufficient, capable, rational, loving and empathetic. 

None of these tips require you to purchase or study anything but are the building blocks to all of us. 

Basically, this is the perfect book for tips on parenting and really all you need to know.
I will suggest this book to all parents and think it is a great Baby Shower gift as well.
