Description - Ages and Stages by Charles E. Schaefer
The only comprehensive guide to a child's psychological development from birth to age 10Ages and Stages is the first and only book to cover the five major areas of a child's psychological development--emotional, cognitive, friendship/relationships, personal growth, and morality (other books on the market only cover one or two areas). Written in an engaging and down-to-earth style, Ages and Stages offers parents the most current information on childhood development. Parents are told what range of behaviors and development to expect as their child grows and are given tips and techniques that will help guide their child to the next stage of development. Filled with easy-to-follow "Parent Do's and Don'ts," this guide provides parents with a supportive, non-alarmist view of childhood development that helps nurture the parent-child bond and sets this book apart from most other parenting books. The special format is divided into four age categories of development--birth to 18 months, 18 months to 36 months, 3 to age 6, and 6 to age 10.
This valuable guide promotes parental involvement and activity with their child and helps parents assess if and when a child may need professional intervention.Charles E.
