Editorial Reviews

Child Magazine
This wonderful book takes a fresh look at that magical, yet maddening, period traditionally known as the "terrible twos."According to Dr. Pruett, a clinical psychiatrist at Yale University's Child Study Center and a member of Child's advisory board, this age is "the keystone in the archway of personality formation." But don't be intimidated: His book explains how to nurture your toddler's emotional development, so you can guide her toward becoming confident, competent, and caring.
Work & Family Life
This delightful and insightful new book opens the door to a true understanding of children from 18 to 36 months. ...Combining research and theoretical information with practical tips for parents, Dr. Pruett covers a wide range of topics: language acquisition, the path to self-control and conscience, the significance of children's play, different behavior patters in boys and girls, making the most of the temperamental fit between parents and children, research on the effects of childcare and how culture, tradition and family style shape the way we parent and how our children develop.

"This is the time when competence, personality and self-image&151;the keys to accomplishment and achievement in every aspect of living&151;are being shaped for a lifetime" Dr. Pruett points out, "and if you can wonder at and understand what's happening in this extraordinary period, you'll be in great shape to guide your child's growth (and yours as a parent) and to be delighted and amazed by it along the way."

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Pruett (The Nurturing Father), a clinical psychiatrist at Yale University's Child Study Center, takes an in-depth look at the emotional development of the 18- to 36-month-old. During this age period, a child's cognitive and emotional faculties develop surprisingly quickly; nurturing parents especially matter in this phase, when children are so receptive to parental guidance. Emphasizing that it's the way parents "nurture nature" that counts, Pruett makes the compelling case that emotions drive learning. The author concentrates on how a positive emotional life enhances brain development, encourages parents to give their children love and positive experiences and stresses the importance of play in a child's life. Pruett maintains that the most crucial milestones a child masters--such as learning to trust and to resolve conflicts and developing curiosity, confidence and contentment--are emotional rather than physical. Incorporating recent research, his text is breezy and anecdotal, with a parent-friendly tone. Pruett underscores the importance of constant, nurturing caregivers and includes a sensible discussion of early child-care issues. This is a thorough and sensitive celebration of a young child's emotional life, clearly defining the critical links between the way children learn and how they feel about themselves and the world.

Library Journal
These Goddard parenting guides, written for the educated parent, report recent research on the functioning of the brain and the integration of emotional, physical, mental, and social growth. When new findings contradict old theories, the authors separate fact from fad. While each book does give concrete suggestions on what to do at various ages, the emphasis is on the developmental point in the child's life at a particular time. The Rameys, both psychology professors at the University of Alabama, describe seven principles essential to good parenting, culled from years of research. They take pains to explain why punishment is detrimental to babies. Pruett, a professor of child psychiatry at Yale's Child Study Center, also describes how to set limits for toddlers in his discussion of the tremendous development that occurs between 18 months and three years. Each book takes a careful look at good day-care solutions and encourages parents to relax and enjoy their children. The authors recognize that new parents may sometimes feel awkward interacting with their small children, and both books demonstrate how important that personal contact is. The series will continue with issues of concern to parents of three- to eight-year-olds, also written by the Rameys. Both books are recommended for public and academic libraries.--Margaret Cardwell, Georgia Perimeter Coll., Clarkston Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    Parenting Advice That's Essential!!

    Teaching parents how to help their children build their sense of self is the brilliant basis behind the new book Me, Myself and I by Dr. Kyle Pruett. He deals with spoiling, tantrums, play, the links between emotion and learning, trust. He also discusses the importance of having the right caregiver if as a parent you can't be there all the time. And he includes tips on how to determine if the daycare you are using is safe and beneficial. What a marvelous book for all parents of children between the ages of 18 months and 36 months. Me, Myself and I should be required reading!
