FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE MILLION-COPY SELLING The Chimp Paradox
How can we help our children:
· become more resilient?
· get over mistakes?
· develop a positive outlook?
And, what can we do to become better role models?
Prof Steve Peters uses his Chimp Mind Management Model to help parents, teachers and carers understand the neuroscience behind unconscious beliefs and habits that may be silently guiding children's emotions, thinking and behaviours.
The Silent Guides explores ten positive habits and many related themes taken from the children's educational book My Hidden Chimp.
Prof Steve Peters helps challenge unhelpful behaviours such as:
· being overly self-critical
· fear of failure
· low self-esteem
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Among his many achievements in psychiatry and sport, Professor Steve Peters helped coach British cyclists Victoria Pendleton and Sir Chris Hoy to Olympic gold. With this follow-up to his self-help bestseller The Chimp Paradox, he takes on a challenge that some will argue is far tougher than training elite sports stars: understanding and influencing the behaviour of children. Peters examines the habits and behaviours, both positive and unhealthy, that adults develop and how they can be influenced and guided in childhood. With a warmth, clear-headed analysis and plenty of practical advice, The Silent Chimp skilfully makes the complex science of neurology engaging and easy to understand. This is a deep and fascinating dive into the human mind, and parents in particular will come away feeling informed and reassured.
Written in simple terms, this book is a must read for anyone struggling with negative thoughts that hinders their potential. A great companion to the Steve’s other book, The Chimp Paradox.
