Book Description

From the day babies are born, parents, educators, and other caring adults teach and model how to be safe around cars, water, fire, and people. These habits create more joy and reduce risk. Use this book to build these everyday skills and habits in order to protect young children from harm, help them develop strong relationships, and teach them skills for being safe and having fun with people "Earliest Teachable Moment" provides inspiring stories, clear explanations, and positive practices showing how to use the skills and strategies developed in Kidpower since 1989 to increase the personal safety of young children in ways that are empowering and joyful. Topics include: - Emotional safety for new parents - Teaching healthy boundaries and positive communication skills - Puppet Power and Little Books for little people - Teaching safety rules and checking first - Choosing safe people to care for your children - Helping children manage aggression - Coping with kids who wander, climb, and hide - Protecting young children from harm. "When it comes to safety, the earliest teachable moment is the best teachable moment if this is done in a way that builds understanding and skills instead of creating anxiety or fear."

Format:Paperback
Irene van der Zande is the author of the classic parenting guide, 1,2,3...The Toddler Years: A Practical Guide for Parents and Caregivers which for over 25 years has helped new parents navigate the waters through the all-important first few years of life. Now van der Zande combines her toddler-parenting expertise with her work as the Founder and Executive Director of Kidpower, a leading international organization teaching personal safety to people of all ages, with the creation of the new book "Earliest Teachable Moment: Personal Safety for Babies, Toddlers and Preschoolers." What does personal safety look like for very young children? "Earliest Teachable Moment" gives parents and caregivers information and tools to create emotional safety, boundaries, and positive relationships. Add to that important parent-centered information including "How to choose safe people to care for your children." Van der Zande coaches parents on how to teach basic skills to children including "Checking first to be safe with objects, animals, strangers, and other potential problems." "Earliest Teachable Moment" is practical, compassionate, and backed by years of real-world-tested expertise. This book is a must-have for any parenting library--for yourself, a loved one, or a baby shower gift.
