Attention seeking is seen as misbehavior in young children, and giving them the attention they need is often times interpreted as reinforcement of bad behavior. Everyone Needs Attention focuses on how we, as adults, manage our emotions when children seek our attention, including a how-to chapter to help the reader reflect about how they sought out attention as children. This book includes conversations with teachers as well as some concrete steps to assist in self-explorations. Tamar Jacobson, PhD, includes her own life story, as well as anecdotes of her work with teachers, families, and children over the past forty years as a preschool teacher, professor, mother, and early childhood consultant.
