For all who care for children, whether in a professional or voluntary capacity, this book examines the care needed for a child to develop into mature adulthood.
Keith White identifies five essential elements for child development and the growth of love. There are many insights from foster care and the resources and experience of the Christian faith.
The five elements identified as essential to child development are:
- Security (a secure base)
- Boundaries (moral, consistent)
- Significance (identity and recognition)
- Community (peers, associations)
- Creativity (opportunities for play and making)
The encouraging feature of the book is the realization that these five elements for love can be found in the most unlikely places and situations. And where they are present, in whatever form, love is able to grow.
