"While becoming a mother has felt like a soul quest, few parenting books have spoken to the deep, transformational work we do as parents. Finally, Dr Maxine Therese has answered our call with The Push for a Child Philosophy. It's a rigorously researched, heart-expanding, paradigm-shifting book that I know I'll return to again and again. The paradox of this book is that it's equally challenging and comforting; it will challenge your intellect, ingrained assumptions and inherited beliefs, yet ultimately reassure you that each 'problem' we encounter is in fact a perfect opportunity for growth - your own, your child's and the consciousness of the planet. I hope this book finds its way into the hearts and homes of all those who wish to keep children whole, happy and connected." Kate Erlenbusch.
This is a many-layered piece of work. The pages tap into rich and deep veins of philosophy, spirituality, psychology, metaphysics, education, and other just as enlightening disciplines. Dr Therese has gathered gems from academia, polished them up, and melded these with her genuinely unique ideas on children and childhood philosophy to offer to us a bright, shiny, new jewel to marvel over. However, very soon you realise the granite of Maxine Therese's foundational work is not merely admirable words to live by, but seriously good, real-world advice from a practitioner who knows her stuff from daily work with children and families. Dr Therese's own Foundational Needs model is sensitively explained, and highlights the child as the keeper of great and innate wisdom, and encourages the adult to listen for critical cues that support healing and a way forward that is vast with possibilities. This book offers us a new way to communicate through troubled times and an exciting source of practical activities that are apt, fun and specific to the child's needs. This is a gorgeous new tool for learning. Cath Nitschke.
The Push for a Child Philosophy -What Children really need you to know by Dr Maxine Therese is a gift to our future generations of children. Held within the book are many reassuring messages of hope and support for parents, grandparents, carers of children and children. Dr Maxine's inspirational work heralds a dynamic shift in the perception of children's needs and gives the child a voice. The book clearly announces her dedication and devotion to the ultimate wellbeing of all children. Julieanne Higgins.
What is amazing about this book is that it not only takes you on a journey of discovery about your children and what they really need but it also takes you to a place deep inside of you to heal your own wounds and unmet needs. I know it's a big call, but this book has changed my life. It has made my relationship with my daughters stronger and more connected, it has made me a better parent and partner and it has made me deal with my own wounds that quite frankly, I thought were un-resolvable. This book will transform your family. Melissa Watkins.
This book is rich in knowledge and sparked many emotions and thoughts in me. I found myself re reading many pages as I could see myself and my children in so much of the content. Such an enlightening change of direction when it comes to parenting and a gift to me as both a mother and a person. Tracey Blundy.
