By Sally Goddard (paperback 213 pages) The Well Balanced Child is a passionate manifesto for a whole body approach to learning which integrates the brain, senses, movement and play.
This is Sally Goddard's 3rd book, her earlier book 'Reflexes, Learning and Behaviour' goes into detail about early childhood reflexes (this book is also available on this web site}.
Children of today are more sedentary than any previous generation. Traditional outdoor activities are being abandoned in favour of T.V. and computer games.
In this book Sally covers:
Why movement matters
How music helps brain development
The role of nutrition, the brain and child growth
practical tips for parents and educators to help children with learning and behavioural problems.
