What is the most treasured resource for families with young children? Time. Between keeping house, shopping, doing chores, and getting everyone to work and school -- let alone fitting in family meals, fun activities, and much-needed downtime -- being a parent can require major feats of scheduling. While parents don't always have hours to pore over parenting books, they could use short, to-the-point advice on the challenges they confront every day.
Now, for today's busy families, child-development expert and bestselling author David Elkind offers Parenting on the Go: an authoritative, accessible guide for parents of infants and young children. Elkind has long been praised for his timely, resonant responses to key child-rearing issues. Here, with characteristic insight and comforting sensibility, he offers practical answers to more than 100 common parenting questions, on topics from A to Z, including:
Attention Deficit Disorders
Child-Proofing the Computer
Empathy in Children
Manners and Morals
and much more.
