RUMPUS is a user-friendly title for what is effectively a pre-school behaviour group. Developed by educational and child psychologist Hannah Mortimer, the aim is to support parents and their young children where there are particular difficulties in managing behaviour. What you will find is a combination of approaches to put parents at their ease, improve the attention skills of the children, encourage early language and interactive play, build up family relationships and provide practical advice based on realistic expectations.
"Many, many congratulations on your 'Rumpus' book (and project) - it's absolutely excellent!"
"RUMPUS stands (a little awkwardly) for "Are you Ma's and Pa's under Stress?" and is about starting up and running a pre-school behaviour group. It's filled with ideas for songs and games and also for management techniques to pass on to parents.
