“The Well Balanced Child is a thought-provoking and helpful book that makes a vital contribution to understanding child development. I would recommend it to all parents, teachers, and child healthcare professionals.” —Ewout Van-Manen, Waldorf educator, Michael Hall School, UK – “A magnificently titled and highly informative book skillfully written by a dedicated therapist.” —Harold N. Levinson, M.D., director of Levinson Medical Center for Learning Disabilities – Children of today are more sedentary than any previous generation. Traditional outdoor games—running and jumping, hopscotch, tree climbing, playing on playground equipment—are being abandoned in favor of television, computers, and electronic games. As a result, there is unprecedented concern over the rising levels of childhood obesity and even heart disease. – Deprived of the crucial opportunities for exercising the body and the senses that prepare the brain for learning in the early years, many children are literally unfit to begin the learning process. – The Well Balanced Child is a passionate manifesto for a whole-body approach to learning, which integrates the brain, senses, movement, and play. This practical, inspiring book will enable parents and educators to help children attain their full potential: *Why movement matters *How music helps brain development *The role of nutrition, the brain and child growth *Practical tips for parent and educators to help children with learning and behavioral problems
