Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

Developmental science can provide answers to the most pressing dilemmas for parents of young children. For example, how do I deal with tantrums? How can I get more sleep? Through understanding how the brain matures and how social and cognitive abilities develop, we stand a much greater chance of being more effective and compassionate parents.

The course is taught by Dr Sarah Kuppen, CPsychol who is a child psychologist,working as a senior lecturer in Developmental Psychology. She has recently published Little kids, big dilemmas:Your parenting problems solved by science which is an essential guide for science-minded parents and childcare professionals alike.
