About the author:
Karyn Van Der Zwet asks a lot of questions and has a very efficient Bullshit Detector.
She firmly believes that common First World parenting approaches are incomplete and often misguided, and that many children deserve a much better deal than what they currently receive.
She has a fairly decent education and she was once invited to join British Mensa. Interestingly, many thousands of people with more formal education than Karyn has could have written this book but they didn't. <grin>
All About Tantrums
Why We Have Them How To Prevent Them What To Do When They Happen
Karyn Van Der Zwet
"This book is for people who really want to see change in their lives and the lives of their children. It's not about judgement or blame. It was written to help people make informed decisions. It involves thinking about humanity in a new-old way. It could seem I have told you the sun doesn't revolve around the earth. Please, keep an open mind. And be kind to yourself."
'All About Tantrums' groups tantrums into two categories: Reaction Tantrums and Processing Tantrums, and describes how our brains and bodies deal with each kind.
It covers: Attention Seeking, Boredom, Transitions, Frustration Tantrums, Possession Tantrums, Over-Excitement, Over-Whelmed Tantrums, The Witching Hour, Jealousy, Wilfulness and more.
It provides effective strategies and explains why those strategies work.
'All About Tantrums' does not pat everyone on the back for all of their parenting decisions.
It possibly won't confirm that what you are doing is just fine.
It is for parents who are able to wear their big boys' and girls' panties: who can pause, self-reflect, make changes and see those changes through.
'All About Tantrums' is very clear: parents may get to choose how they parent their children; they DO NOT get to choose the consequences of those choices. Human biology does not understand our good intentions.
Let's face it: sometimes really lovely people, who have tried their hardest, stuff up their kids.
'All About Tantrums' will help you to not be one of those people.
The information and strategies in this book will also help you understand adult tantrums.
