In a comprehensive reference manual, Dr. Shanon Gibson relies on her experience as a seasoned teacher, educational entrepreneur, and infant/toddler developmental specialist to share strategies and insight for parents, educators, counselors, and caregivers that encourage positive early childhood experiences and the development of a whole person to achieve ideal lifelong outcomes. Dr. Gibson provides valuable information on the latest research findings, the growth of a child’s brain, developmental milestones related to a child’s birth gender, and concrete methods to change negative behaviors, build resilience, limit screen time and technology, teach social skills, and much more. Additionally, Dr. Gibson defines sensory processing and the eight sensory systems to help caregivers understand the uniqueness of every child and then successfully parent around it.
The Gift of Parenting is a compassionate guide to unwrapping a child’s potential during early development to ensure the creation of a happy, productive adult.
