Children of all ages need clear boundaries to help them navigate the world around them and develop healthily. But 'boundaries' doesn’t just mean rules: babies need physical boundaries such as loving arms or a cot to feel safe; young children depend on regular routines to know what will happen next and what they'll be doing tomorrow; older children need space to make positive choices and develop as individuals. So how can we provide appropriate boundaries for our children? And how do we know when to adapt as children grow? This insightful book gives an overview of the different types of boundaries children need at different ages and stages, from babies to young adults. It offers a parent's toolkit of practical advice on common pitfalls to avoid, how to form healthy family habits and how to set appropriate rules. Loïs Eijgenraam, author of Helping Children Form Healthy Attachments, draws on Rudolf Steiner's theories of child development to create a holistic, natural and positive guide to inspire and support your own approach to parenting.

Warmth is a hand-knitted woolly jumper and a crackling fire in the grate. Warmth is a smile when we need encouragement and a hug when things aren't going our way. This one word has so many powerful, positive associations. Warmth is one of the basic building blocks of existence; without it, there would be no life or growth. As parents we want our children to be warm - physically and emotionally. We raise them to be warm people full of compassion and hope. In the first book of its kind, anthroposophical therapist Edmond Schoorel explores the role of warmth across many aspects of child development, including: -- physical warmth and what children should wear; -- the role of warmth in bodily processes such as growth, energy and health -- the importance of emotional warmth; -- warmth of spirit, or enthusiasm. This fascinating and practical book gives parents and caregivers valuable insight into how to nurture different aspects warmth in everyday family life, and will also be useful for teachers and anyone who works with children.
