Born Wise

Based on her years of experience as a family health nurse, the author challenges the traditional perception that children are born inarticulate like vessels waiting to be filled with knowledge and experiences, and instead suggests they are born with intuition and an understanding of everything we say

Based on her years of experience as a family health nurse, the author challenges the traditional perception that children are born inarticulate like vessels waiting to be filled with knowledge and experiences, and instead suggests they are born with intuition and an understanding of everything we say.

The book’s content focuses on newborns and children up to four years of age, because this is when the child is perceived to possess their highest level of intuition and mental capacity.

Working on the theory that children are born with the ability to communicate, understand and feel, the book explores crying as a means of communication, and physical development in relation to breastfeeding and the acquisition of motor skills.

Packed with examples of real-life situations, the book highlights how we pass our own behaviours on to our children, and the special two-way relationship that develops when we are teaching our child, and our child is teaching us.
