The Active Creative Child by Stephanie Vlahov: Teaser Tuesday

The Active, Creative Child: Parenting in Perpetual MotionTeaser Tuesdays asks you to choose two sentences at random from your current read. Identify the author and title for readers.


"Discipline is Not a Four Letter Word.
Advocate for Your Child's Creativity." (ch. 4)


Book description from Goodreads: With an active, creative child, parents and teachers need to be flexible, energetic and smart! Here is a practical handbook for coping, establishing realistic boundaries and avoiding labels when you have a really inquisitive child. Active/creative children are often misunderstood by the medical community, by schools, and by their own parents. Their energy can be astounding; their curiousity is boundless -- and channeling that energy is necessary. This is encouragement and genuine help to support a child's natural curiosity and energy: * work with your child's energy, don't squelch it * keep your own ego from interfering with your child's passion * how to avoid over-stimulation * how to choose the best artistic outlets * how to choose the best teachers.

  1. Thanks for your comment!
    Great teaser as well. I once managed a theatre group for less able primary school children. One of the most difficult but also most inspiring times of my life so far!
