"The authors' deep understanding...makes this groundbreaking book fascinating, unique, and an essential reference for parents and professionals alike." -- -Robie H. Harris, author of It's Perfectly Normal and It's So Amazing! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This particular guide brings an esteemed name and 90 years of research at the Yale Center to the task of advising parents on raising their children. Aimed at parents, teachers, and child-care professionals, the book uses research from several disciplines and interactions with parents and children. The book offers three perspectives: the scientific, with basic information about meeting a growing child's needs; the emotional, with attention to understanding a child's feelings; and the parental, with emphasis on the feelings and expectations the parent brings to the relationship: "Your view of yourself as a parent and your mental portrait of your child shape your parenting style." The objective is to help parents balance the three perspectives. Unlike most parenting books, this guide looks at broad developmental paths from the time the parent first begins to imagine the child to come, through pregnancy, birth, and various physical, cognitive, social, and emotional stages. This approach lends the guide a broad and deep perspective on parenting even as it covers typical issues such as imaginary friends and sibling rivalry. REVWR
