Young children's unmet emotional needs: Identifying and meeting them

New insights into how children feel, think and understand about the way we talk to and behave with them, and practical skills for dealing with their innate needs and emotions.

If society is to reduce the levels of family breakdowns, anti-social behaviour, mental illness and addictions, all our children need to be raised in environments where their innate psychological needs are met. In order to flourish and behave well, children need to feel secure, be given and receive appropriate attention, be able to delay gratification, take increasing levels of responsibility for their own behaviour, be stretched, develop a sense of autonomy and, of course, have fun! For this to happen they also need to be emotionally well connected to their family, peers, school and the wider community; and be given a sense of status that reflects their effort and achievements. Miriam Chachamu's day focuses mainly on pre-eleven year-olds and clarifies how this can be done and gives you practical tools for meeting these needs, managing challenging behaviour and how we can create environments in which not only children but also the rest of the family can thrive and fulfil their potential.
