What children really need you to know...


Written by Dr. Maxine Therese - Founder & Creator of the Childosophy approach to Children’s Wellbeing.


Drawing on the latest scientific research, philosophy and psychology, as well as Maxine's own clinical experience.


This book promotes the child as a soul - unified in body, mind, and spirit. Articulated through the Foundational Needs Model, the complex interplay of the emotional, mental, psychological, spiritual and physical dimensions are revealed.


Travel on a philosophical journey to consider children in a new way. Be supported as an adult to consider your own unmet needs from childhood and see how these same needs influence your relationship with children now.


By supporting children to stay connected from the very beginning of life we are laying the foundations for lifelong wellbeing and for a brighter future for our children.
