How does a child's mind work? And what should parents know about it to help them in their daily interaction with children?

This book is a fascinating, non-technical introduction to the mental life of the child. Written in a simple, accessible way for those without an academic background in philosophy, the book explores and explains key elements of the child's mind without overwhelming the reader with complicated theories. Some of the areas discussed are:

  • how children learn concepts
  • the acquisition of beliefs, skills, knowledge and understanding
  • the place of memory
  • can we teach thinking skills?
  • what is intelligence?
  • imagination and creativity
  • the development of emotion
  • connections between home life, education and the school curriculum.
