Your Growing Child
Authors: Leach, Penelope
Publisher: Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group
Synopsis: Penelope Leach is one of today’s foremost authorities on child care, author of the greatly admired Your Baby & Child: From Birth to Age Five, which Dr. T. Berry Brazelton has called “a wonderful book. Well researched, well written and sensitive to both parents’ and children’s needs in the task of growing up together.” Now, with the same authority and understanding, she discusses parents’ concerns about children of all ages.
Your Growing Child is an A-to-Z compendium of vital information and comfort for every mother and father—from new parents bringing home their first infant to parents of adolescents soon to strike out on their own. Whether she is telling you what to do when your child suddenly develops a high fever or earache or rash, or suggesting how you might determine the reason behind your eight-year-old’s unwillingness to go to school, or helping you deal with your adolescent’s developing sexuality, Penelope Leach’s full and specific advice always reflects not only the practice of leading medical authorities but her own immense expertise and experience as a child psychologist, her extraordinary sensitivity to the feelings of both child and parent, and her grasp of the realities—financial, professional, and social—of life today.
