Product Description

Review

"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.

From Booklist

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

HASH(0xa6894384) 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.
