What Every Parent Needs to Know is the bestselling, step-by-step guide to the new primary school curriculum from Toby Young and Miranda Bondy. What is your child learning each day in school? How can you tell if they are doing well or badly? And what can you do to help? This practical, detailed and user-friendly manual contains absolutely everything you need to know about primary schooling and the new UK curriculum, ensuring your child will succeed and flourish every step of the way. As parents we do the very best for our children in choosing the right school and preparing them for their very first day. But for the next seven years we have little idea what our child is learning, whether they are doing well or badly and what, if anything, we can do to help. What Every Parent Needs to Know changes that. It gives us, the parents, the details, the thinking behind and a thorough understanding of the brand-new primary school curriculum launching in September 2014. Taking us year-by-year through our children's schooling, we'll be given simple explanations of: - What they'll be taught and why (from phonics checks to SPAG tests) - What they need to know at the start of each year - What they should be able to achieve at its end - The games and exercises we can do at home to help out What Every Parent Needs to Know explains the confusing jargon while being otherwise jargon free and is written by two parents (who between them have nine children) with many successful years working in staff rooms and classrooms. Not only will this guide help you understand your children's journey through primary school, but it will also help you prepare, encourage and nurture them every step of the way. It's the manual every confused, unsure or worried parent has been waiting for. Toby Young is the outspoken columnist who wrote the international bestseller How to Lose Friends and Alienate People. A high-profile and passionate education reformer, he co-founded and set up two primary schools and wrote How to Set Up a Free School (2011) . Toby has 4 children, all currently at primary school. Miranda Thomas started teaching in 1990, coinciding with the very first national curriculum. She is now an A level physics teacher in Wiltshire, as well as being the Chair of Governors at her local primary school and a parent herself. Her youngest child is currently in Year 8.

Parents wonder how to protect their children when almost every day the news reports another incident of someone in authority arrested on suspicion of child abuse-from clergy and teachers to family members themselves.

Parents must view protecting children from the potential of sexual assault as a priority. Teaching children preventive measures should be viewed as important as teaching kids how to dial 9-1-1.Sax concludes by emphasizing that the best defense against sexual offenders is information.

While the children seemed happy on the outside, deep inside they were suffering from the hidden trauma that so many adopted children carry with them. Because of the rejection, neglect, and abandonment they experience in the first few months of life, some adopted children are imprinted with the subconscious belief that at their core they are unlovable and worthless, even if their new parents are nurturing and loving. What Every Adoptive Parent Needs to Know offers adoptive parents and parents-to-be a solution. By following the threads of the Richards’ moving story, clarified by insightful analysis and practical advice from family therapist Kate Cremer-Vogel, readers of this compelling book discover it is never too late to heal the wounded heart of a child. This remarkable true-life story of raising two adopted children is a tale of hope and resilience, of two parents unprepared for their children’s psychological wounds that only time would reveal. Most importantly, it shows that profound healing is possible when adoptive families realize that traditional parenting is not enough.
