Treats thirty problems--from bedwetting to tantrums--that accompany the turning points in children's development over the first six years of life, with additional sections on baby care and the role of doctors and relatives

Blackwell North Amer
From pregnancy to first grade, all the concerns and questions that parents have about their child's behavior, feelings, and development are anticipated and answered in both chronological and reference form. Underlying this guidance is the touchpoints concept that has shaped Dr. Brazelton's office practice and research for over three decades. "Touchpoints" are the universal spurts of development and the trying periods of regression that accompany them throughout childhood. In this book - as in his office - Brazelton uses them as windows to help parents understand their child's behavior and prevent future problems.
Part One of this comprehensive book follows each of these touchpoints from the prenatal visit through the first three years, explaining the characteristic achievements and calming the inevitable worries at each stage. Every chapter ends with a section on "Looking Ahead."
Part Two covers the first six years, with all the common behavioral and emotional challenges, in alphabetical order, from allergies to toilet training. Dr. Brazelton reveals how to understand these as the child's issues, warding off parent-child conflict.
Part Three explains the vital role of all the important people in a child's life.
Touchpoints is a priceless reference. Longer than a housecall, more objective than a grandmother, it puts a brilliant and beloved pediatrician into every home.
