Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This child-friendly, deaf-friendly, parent-friendly guide, authored by two child and family therapists, covers various aspects of parenting but specifically focuses on dealing with childhood behaviors after parents have accepted their child's deafness. Offering ideas and methods that work with children aged three through 12, this practical and easy-to-read handbook emphasizes communication skills. The parenting techniques presented are traditional and valuable. For example, the authors suggest that parents "do what is best-not what is easiest." They advise that raising a deaf or hard-of-hearing child involves love, nurturance, affection, physical contact, and humor. Any book on the use of sign language would complement this book, as would the works of such disabilities experts as Tom Sullivan, Sol Gordon, and Frank Bowe. For all parenting collections.-Emily Ferren, Ruth Enlow Lib. of Garrett Cty., Oakland, Md.
