This revolutionary book will change our understanding of children and what they need to succeed. It will inspire in parents a sense that their child can truly realise his or her potential, and give them the confidence to help their son or daughter develop the skills and emotional strength needed to navigate the pressures and stresses of the modern world.

In The Zone offers a new framework for understanding and raising children based on self-regulation - the process by which a child (or indeed a parent) can get 'in the zone' - a receptive state of calm alertness that allows you to approach any task in a state of balance. Learning the art of self-regulation can help children learn to deal with experiences, overcome frustration, learn to pay better attention, control impulses, engage better with others and learn about the world.

Underpinned by science, Dr Shanker's techniques have had a remarkable effect on children and parents alike, enabling them to stay 'in the zone' of being calmly focused and alert. Hundreds of thousands of children who have gone through the programme have shown significant improvement in literacy, numeracy and behaviour. Now, his groundbreaking research is being published for the first time in this timely and practical guide for parents.Author BiographyDr Stuart Shanker is Distinguished Research Professor of Philosophy and Psychology and head of a psychological research lab at York University in Toronto, Canada. He's won numerous awards, lectured at Harvard and other leading universities, given keynote addresses at major gatherings, appeared on the Today Show and CNN and been interviewed by The New York Times, WSJ and others.
