Being a parent is more challenging today than it’s ever been. In All About Children, this thoroughly reliable and effective handbook, clinical psychologist Dr Tony Humphreys outlines effective ways of parenting and positive responses to difficult behaviour by children. Sometimes the task of parenting seems overwhelming. At others it provides great fulfilment and joy. It is always unpredictable; the challenges are forever changing and much of what we might have learned from our own parents seems quite irrelevant now. Parenting is not learned by instinct; it requires many complex skills. Parents have responsibility for the physical, emotional, social, sexual, behavioural, educational, creative and spiritual development of their children, and at the same time they must love them unconditionally. Tony Humphreys recognises the many and varied challenges faced by parents today. In All About Children, he provides an invaluable resource for parents by taking the questions they most frequently ask and providing thoughtful and comprehensive answers. He begins by pointing out that in order to develop parenting skills, each parent must first understand themselves and be prepared to continually update their knowledge as the needs of their children alter as they grow older. He goes on to deal with the practical aspects of everyday parenting skills and then looks at different aspects of challenging behaviour, both by children and parents. The book concludes with a chapter on learning and education, two core concerns of every parent. In a helpful question-and-answer format, All About Children provides today’s parents with not only the vital information they require but also points out the skills they need to carry out their demanding task effectively. All About Children: Table of Contents Introduction Where does parenting begin? What roles do parents need to play? What are the skills needed for everyday parenting? How can parents best respond to children’s challenging behaviours? How can parents resolve their own challenging behaviours? How can parents prepare children for living their lives fully?

Today, the need for communication skills has become more important than ever before. Communication plays a vital role — be it the preparation one has to do to face an interview or deal with diverse business deals, or interacting with colleagues, superiors, and others. The Second Edition of this text, based on the feedback received from the readers, continues to highlight the vital skills one needs for effectively communicating in diverse situations. Divided into five parts, the text shows the power of three V’s of communication — the verbal, the visual and the vocal, examining at the same time the role of formal and informal communication methods, and stressing the significance of grapevine in organizations. It also demonstrates how important listening is, and the basic skill-sets needed by a manager for business dealings. Further, the text gives the nuances of verbal communication and the factors necessary for preparing a presentation besides giving a comprehensive view of non-verbal communication. It highlights the role of written communication, the importance of business writing, the formats of business letters, memos, and report writing, and how flawed thinking impedes written communication. The text concludes by emphasizing the crucial role played by corporate communication in enhancing an organization’s image. What’s New to This Edition : New concepts such as Fog Index/Readability Index, Business Terms, Acronyms, Abbreviations, e-mail Etiquette, Virtual Team Skills, and Social Skills.
