Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Arranged by topics like early baby functions, emotional growth, learning right from wrong, and sexuality and gender, this encyclopedic guide explains all facets of children's psychological and physical growth and advises parents on how best to stimulate development and resolve common dilemmas. The authors, professors of child psychiatry and pediatrics at the Yale Child Study Center, write in reassuring language. "If you are listening to Mozart," they explain, "by all means play Mozart as you rock your infant. But if you prefer to sing along with Ray Charles, there's no need to choose Mozart instead. The games, books, and other products that keep you and your child interested are more useful than those `recommend by experts' for children in general." Perhaps the most helpful sections of the book are those focused on school. Parents will find information on diagnosing learning disabilities, finding special schools, encouraging reading, and coping with school-related behavior problems. Some parents accustomed to slim, trendy tomes may initially find this hefty volume intimidating, but it deserves a place on the parenting shelf in every household.

From Library Journal

Although this survey of child development and parenthood packs considerable wisdom and bears a prestigious imprimatur, it comes off as fairly generic. With its emphasis on a conceptual, developmental approach, it stands out in strong intellectual counterpoint to the quick how-to tactics of many contemporary titles, such as Sally Ward's BabyTalk: Strengthen Your Child's Ability To Listen, Understand and Communicate (LJ 3/15/01). Mayes, director of early childhood programs at the Yale Child Study Center, and Cohen, its former director, cover individual topics in 36 chapters (e.g., "Your Baby's Motor Development," "Sexuality and Gender," "The Course of Pregnancy"). Though this comprehensiveness is a plus, much of the advice is common sense ("negative experiences or the absence of appropriate care may cause serious, enduring harm to early brain development"). As admirable as the authors' goals are, it is hard to imagine public library patrons reading and retaining this much general information. For larger public libraries. (Index not seen.) Douglas C.

HASH(0x9b146138) out of 5 stars The Yale Child Study Center Guide to Understanding Your Child Dec 27 2007
By Maynard D. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book will be very helpful in planning a course on child development with interested parents. Though I have a background in work with chilren, my knowledge base is mostly theoretical and I needed something that would help me address the everyday issues that parents of young children face and I am hoping that many of them will be willing to get the book as a reference for themselves.
