Timeless Advice from Hanna Perkins Center

Appletree Books is pleased to carry the new childcare book from Cleveland’s Hanna Perkins Center.

Timeless Advice for Parents of Young Children: How to Understand Your Child’s Behavior and Respond Effectively in Almost Any Situation
from the Grandmothers of Hanna Perkins Center

“Children don’t come with an instruction manual, but this book is about as close as you can get.  Written by a group of wise early-childhood development experts, it’s an easy-to-read behavioral guide to what’s going on with your young child’s mind in almost any situation – from public tantrums to noticing people with disabilities to preparing for the first day of preschool.  Whether you read it cover to cover or reach for it when the going gets tough, it will help bring out that loving, nurturing, patient and resourceful parent that lives in all of us.”

Hanna Perkins Center for Child Development is a non-profit partner with parents, educators and mental health professionals to help children understand and manage their emotions for success in school and life.  Founded in 1951, its services include a school; mental health clinic for children and adolescents; consultation and training for other schools and early learning centers; continuing education for teachers, social workers and mental health professionals; and training in the specialized field of child psychoanalysis.
