Children first : what our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today by Penelope Leach( Book )

32 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Children First is the most important and urgent book on childcare we have yet had from the internationally admired author of the classic Your Baby & Child. In it Penelope Leach calls on us as individuals and as a nation to make good on the promise of our endless rhetoric about the importance of family by creating the indispensable economic and social supports for children that are now so tragically missing. She asks us - in our legislation, in our policy-making, in our industrial might - to think of children first and thereby let a new rush of sanity and health into our society. She presents us with the paradox that after spending spectacular millions and employing the most sophisticated medical science to help children come into the world, our society turns its back on them in the very years during which they are developing. She shows us how, while paying constant lip service to family, we fail to acknowledge the difficulties of parenting in the nineties and to make sure that conditions essential to the raising of children are available to parents. It is Penelope Leach's contention that what parents do for their children - what they are able to do - depends on what society actually wants, approves and encourages. And, in a powerful argument against complacency, she presents specific steps by which we, as members of society, can move to fashion a new economic priority for all children; to make the child central in the fight against poverty and inequity; to achieve a rational standard of human rights for our children; and to find, in our own lives, effective new approaches to positive parenting. Provocative, passionate, courageous, Children First is a groundbreaking book. It has the extraordinary potential to affect the lives not only of our own children but also of the children that they themselves will have in years to come

When parents part : how mothers and fathers can help their children deal with separation and divorce by Penelope Leach( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the author of the best-selling Your Baby & Child: completely practical, comprehensively researched information and advice on how you can do what is best for your child when you are going through a separation or divorce. Using the latest scientific research in child development, Penelope Leach covers the various effects of divorce on children in five stages of life (infants, toddlers/preschoolers, primary school children, teenagers, college students/young adults), many of whom are far more deeply affected than previously thought. She explains recent studies which overturn many common assumptions, and which show, for example, that many standard custody arrangements for very young children are harmful to children's attachment to their parents and therefore to their brain development. There is evidence to suggest that the practice of having infants and toddlers spend regular overnights with non custodial parents may be damaging, and the practice of dividing children's time equally between the parents is seldom best for the children. Leach's advice is meticulously considered and exhaustive, covering everything from access, custody, and financial and legal considerations to managing separate sets of technology in two houses, and she includes the voices of both parents and children to illustrate her points. She explains why "mutual parenting" is the ideal way to co-parent after a divorce, and delineates ways to carry this out. And throughout, she makes clear that, most importantly in any separation or divorce, both parents must put their relationship to their children and responsiveness to their needs ahead of their feelings about each other"--

Your Growing Child is an A-to-Z compendium of vital information and comfort for every mother and father -- from new parents bringing home their first infant to parents of adolescents soon to strike out on their own. Whether she is telling you what to do when your child suddenly develops a high fever or earache or rash, or suggesting how you might search for the reason behind your eight-year-old's unwillingness to go to school, or helping you deal with your adolescent's developing sexuality, Penelope Leach's full and specific advice always reflects not only the practice of leading medical authorities but her own immense expertise and experience as a child psychologist, her extraordinary sensitivity to the feelings of both child and parent, and her grasp of the realities -- financial, professional, and social -- of life today. Just about every problem a parent can face is discussed in this book. Whatever your questions, the alphabetized listings and index make it easy for you to find answers -- answers that will enable you to act calmly, efficiently, confidently, in a way which feels right for you and your family, in caring for your child's health and emotional well-being
Transforming infant wellbeing : research, policy and practice for the first 1001 critical days by Penelope Leach( )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Transforming Infant Wellbeing brings together science and policy to highlight the critical importance of the first 1,001 days of infancy: the period from conception to the second birthday. Introduced and edited by Penelope Leach, who uniquely combines academic knowledge of infant development with the ability to write about it for wide audiences, the book has at its heart 25 original articles by acknowledged experts in different aspects of infant health and development. Brought together, they showcase innovative science and best practises to a wide range of readers: to scientific colleagues in different disciplines; to politicians and policy makers; to local authority commissioners and specialist advisors, statutory and voluntary organisations and parents. This book has a two-fold purpose in science and in social policy. Firstly, to collect new papers by leading scientists in a single volume, which ensures they reach a broad audience. Secondly, by introducing and commenting on the significance of these new findings, the book highlights both the benefits that accrue to society when it acts accordingly, and the costs, financial and social, of our failure to do so. In the last 50 years, interest in infant development and especially maternal and infant mental health has burgeoned. A large number of issues at the forefront of child development research mirror those of yesterday, but the research brought to bear upon them has transformed. Thanks largely to technological and statistical advances, we now know a great deal that researchers of earlier generations could only surmise. However, increasing knowledge of infancy has not been matched by an increasing impact on parents and professionals, politicians and policy makers. Bringing contemporary studies involving pregnancy, birth, infancy and toddlerhood together, along with the undisputed evidential findings that flow from them, large gaps between what is known and what is done become apparent. By focusing on what can be done to fill those gaps, Transforming Infant Wellbeing renders inescapable the need to rethink current priorities. It represents essential reading for researchers, parents and policy makers of infancy."--Provided by publisher

Family breakdown by Penelope Leach( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Divorcing or separating feels like overwhelmingly adult business, but if children are involved it is very much their business as well. This book is written for separating mothers and fathers, for their extended families and prospective new partners, and for the professionals who support and advise them. Above all, this book is written to help those grownups do better by children. This book is full of ways to minimise the impact of separation. You'll discover - often in their own words - what children of different ages are likely to understand and feel about the process, along with ways to help them cope. There's research to help guide you through those dreadfully difficult decisions about access and custody; information about money and legal matters; and suggestions about handovers, holidays and more. "Mutual parenting," is not easy to achieve, but it is the best possible way forward from family breakdown
