Psychology for parents: Birth to teens
Have you asked yourself the questions: Is it better to be strict or lenient with my children? What should I do if my child is being bullied? How can I get my teenager to talk to me? What should I do if my child has dyslexia?

Psychology for parents: Birth to teens offers answers to these questions grounded in psychological research. It presents psychological research on parenting issues in an accessible way and aims to bridge the gap between child psychology textbooks and traditional parenting books.

This comprehensive reference guide covers a wide range of topics including discipline, intelligence, personality, special needs and mental health. Parents will find that they go back to the book as different issues crop up in their child’s life.

Faye Carlisle is a psychology teacher with over 10 years’ experience. She has worked at four different schools in the UK, both in the independent and state sector. She is also a mother with practical experience of parenting.
When she became a mother, she felt that many parenting books offered conflicting advice. At one extreme there are attachment parenting books, which suggest that parents should carry their baby around at all times and co-sleep. At the other extreme, there are books telling parents to get their baby into a routine straight away.
Her psychology background led her to look at the academic research on parenting and to write a book based on evidence rather than opinion. She aims to empower parents to make their own decisions armed with some understanding of the research on parenting issues.
