Most of the everyday conflicts that plague families stem simply from a communication gap between parent and child. Famous for her system of 'baby language', in Child Sense Priscilla Dunstan extends her focus to the first 5 years of life, revealing how best to interpret your child's behaviour and maximise their potential for success and happiness in life. Priscilla's insight is to identify that each of us is born with one dominant sense mode - seeing, hearing, touching, or tasting and smelling. And that this exercises a profound influence on the way we experience the world and communicate our needs to those around us. Whether you have a visual child, who is always concerned with how things look, or a tactile child who is physical and practical and responds best to clear, direct suggestions, Priscilla offers advice about everything from toilet training to temper tantrums, from sleepless nights to problem eating.
And she has a repertoire of tips and techniques to help you interpret your little one's behaviour, and adapt your parenting style to suit their temperament.
