The Yale Child Study Center Guide to Understanding Your Child: Healthy Development from Birth to Ado

Resource Type

Book - Parent


"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." -Publishers Weekly
