The Parent and Child Group Handbook

£16.99

Regular contact with other families can be a vital lifeline for parents with young children – a chance to make friends, ask questions, learn new skills and gain confidence in their own abilities as a parent.

Rudolf Steiner’s insight into the spiritual, sensory and intellectual needs of early childhood has inspired a unique kind of parent and child group. Drawing on this approach, Dot Male’s book shows parents how they can join together with others to create a supportive family community.

Illustrated with case studies from around the world, her lively, accessible guide to running a thriving parent and child group expains how to:

  • Create a calm, harmonious space;
  • Use rhythm and ritual to structure a session;
  • Devise appropriate toys, crafts, games and outdoor play
  • Celebrate seasonal festivals and the cycle of the year
  • Fulfil key health, safety and legal requirements.

Written with the needs of busy parents in mind, The Parent and Child Group Handbook can be used as a quick read for inspiration and ideas or as a comprehensive reference. Each chapter includes an introductory overview, a summary of key points, and, for those who wish to explore the issues further, book lists and useful contacts.
