Learning to talk is probably the greatest milestone in a child's development: a deeply moving and often hilarious experience for all parents. In this charming and informative book, Britain's leading expert on the English language talks you through every stage in your child's language development. Over thirty years after its original publication, this new and updated edition of Listen to your Child shows us that while the world our children are growing up in may have changed, one thing has not: parents still need to listen. Gathering decades of research from psychologists and linguists, Professor Crystal shows how the more we know about language acquisition - from 'cooking' and 'babbling' to melodic 'scribble talk' and simple words and then to incessant chatter - the more there is to delight in. From birth to the early school years, Listen to your Child provides a painless introduction to the study of child language acquisition as well as invaluable advice for parents.

Our schools are failing your kids. In Listen to Your Kids, author and veteran teacher Thomas Harvey explains the why and tells you what you can to do help solve this crisis. A personal account from the front lines of education’s battlefield—the classroom—Listen to Your Kids provides a broad discussion of secondary education and invites parents, teachers, and administrators to open an honest and thought-provoking dialogue about educational reform. Harvey demonstrates how school reform should not be about money or testing but rather about nourishing each student’s soul. Sharing powerful personal approaches to connecting with teenagers, he imparts simple strategies for transforming indifferent, angry, and struggling students into optimistic and successful young adults. Filled with anecdotes and letters from students, Listen to Your Kids presents a how-to manual for creating emotionally rich and respectful relationships that are powerful antidotes to the apathy felt by so many students toward school. It provides ample evidence to show that an emotionally healthy educational environment produces academically healthier kids.

My students of all ages taught me they did not know how to listen. I learned that in order to be successful in my work, I would have to focus them before the lesson. You don't have to be a teacher to lead these games. Anyone can listen when we know what to do. We have to know what it feels like in the body and mind and then we can go right to that place. Kids love to have fun and they especially love to lead. These games work if you are the leader or the player. Both roles must listen carefully. People with special needs love these games too. Everyone loves these one minute games because they see results quickly.
