Overview

Playground Politics is the first book to look at the neglected middle years of childhood—from kindergarten to junior high—and to help parents understand the enormous emotional challenges these children are facing.

His empathy for the turmoil children bring home from school, and for the parents who try to help, is deep and reassuring.
