‘There is always a baby for whom you can feel happy at what they have achieved, or sad when things go wrong. There are always parents to help through an incredible journey . . . I am, I know, a very lucky man.’ Leading paediatrician Dr Simon Rowley has committed almost all of his working life to the care and wellbeing of children. In Mind That Child, Rowley provides a rare glimpse into what it means to be entrusted with the most precious of responsibilities – a young human life. Charting his decades of medical experience, Rowley touches on an array of issues, from the high-stakes management of tiny pre-term babies to the serious impacts of drugs, alcohol and technology on developing minds. Real-life cases and practical advice are interwoven throughout a candid, compassionate narrative. What’s revealed is a tender and profound portrait of a medical professional at the very centre of what matters – a doctor who always adopts a humane, holistic view and who writes openly about the personal impact of a career in medicine. A must-read for any parent and a wonderful insight into the high-pressure medical world.

From a Child's mind to an Adult's Heart is written about my life as I saw it as a child and the adults that made an impact on my life. I would like to dedicate this book to all the adults in our community who molded me into the adult I am today. I'm a living witness that one must be careful in the way we act or the things that we say around a child because children tend to mimic adults. We must be careful of the conversations we have when we think children arent listening. Those conversations can come back to either honor or embarrass us when the child becomes an adult. This book is a prime example of how God allows situations and circumstances to be embedded in some childrens minds and hearts for future references. As I look at this world today, and how some children have to worry about where their next meal is coming from or whether their mothers are coming home, I realize how blessed I was to be born in the era of the 50s where the majority of the adults genuinely cared about the well being of the children. This era inspired me to write this book in the hope that it would jog the memory of others, causing them to recall how special they felt when adults took the time out of they busy schedules to play ball or any game with them. Also, some may have forgotten what it was like to be a child without worries. I hope that this book brings back memories of how safe and secure some children felt knowing that a set of adult eyes were always watching out for their safety. Today, children deserve to feel the same type of safety and security that we felt as children. This is their God given right. Let us give our children the happiness and security that they deserve. Out of much love and great respect for the people in my community, I have changed the names, city, streets, and gender of some of the characters in my book to protect their identities. In the same spirit, I deemed it necessary to inform my readers so that they would not be deceived. On one hand, I know that my readers will find laughter and shed many tears. On the other hand, the love and devotion that the adults had for each other and us will shine through.

Three-year old Emily greets her grandfather at the front door: “We're having a surprise party for your birthday! And it's a secret!” We may smile at incidents like these, but they illustrate the beginning of an important transition in children's lives—their development of a “theory of mind.” Emily certainly has some sense of her grandfather's feelings, but she clearly doesn't understand much about what he knows, and surprises—like secrets, tricks, and ties all depend on understanding and manipulating what others think and know. Jean Piaget investigated children's discovery of the mind in the 1920s and concluded that they had little understanding before the age of six. But over the last twenty years, researchers have begun to challenge his methods and revise his conclusions. In The Child's Discovery of the Mind, Janet Astington surveys this lively area of research in developmental psychology. Sometime between the ages of two and five, children begin to have insights into their own mental life and those of others. They begin to understand mental representation—that there is a difference between thoughts in the mind and things in the world, between thinking about eating a cookie and eating a cookie. This breakthrough reflects their emerging capacity to infer other people's thoughts, wants, feelings, and perceptions from words and actions. They come to understand why people act the way they do and can predict how they will act in the future, so that by the age of five, they are knowing participants in social interaction. Astington highlights how crucial children's discovery of the mind is in their social and intellectual development by including a chapter on autistic children, who fail to make this breakthrough. “Mind” is a cultural construct that children discover as they acquire the language and social practices of their culture, enabling them to make sense of the world. Astington provides a valuable overview of current research and of the consequences of this discovery for intellectual and social development.
