"This book provides an overview of children's emotional wellbeing. It examines how children communicate and how we, as adults, can respond in such a way as to provide positive messages, to increase their emotional vocabulary and change behaviour. In essence it offers a child-centred approach to managing behaviour through reflective language, among tools and concepts." - Neil Henty, Early Years Educator (EYE)
