Overview

Why should today's parents read yet another pediatric advice book?

What's changed about babies in the last 30 years? Nothing. What's

changed about parents? Plenty. Today both work. Grandparents

retire to the sunbelt and aren't around to help. And that terrific

neighbor who pitched in when you grew up is hard to find today.

Dan Heller, a celebrated Boston pediatrician, saw parents becoming

significantly more anxious and less confident about their child-

rearing skills. He poo-pooed today's medical system that eschews

common sense and favors dependence on pediatricians, pediatric

specialists and consultants. He wanted parents to relax and enjoy

bringing up children, to understand that most childhood issues are

within the realm of normal.

He called himself "Crazy Dr. Heller" and this book is his legacy--

very sane advice that can make a difference in your parenting.

Daniel G. Heller, MD practiced pediatrics for 28 years before his death in

November, 2004. He graduated from Columbia College and New York

University Medical Center and completed residency at Massachusetts

General Hospital for Children. Board certified in pediatrics and pediatric

nephrology, he was an assistant clinical professor at Harvard Medical

School and loved teaching medical students, residents and parents.

Nancy S. Heller, MSW, JD is a pediatric practice administrator in Brookline,

Massachusetts where she served on the School Committee for several

years. Her legal and social work concentrated on children's issues, like

foster care, adoption, child abuse. Her three children are grown, and she

has one grandson, named for his late grandfather.
