Overview

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This updated guide for parents attempts to highlight the medical and behavior expectations of children from birth through the teenage years. Beginning with "Preparing for Your Baby," this advice book, written by a noted pediatrician, follows the child through infancy, the toddler years, early school years and the teen years. The book briefly touches on childhood illnesses and medical issues, developmental expectations and behavior/discipline concerns. Throughout, the author stresses the importance of using one's common sense and best judgment over advice from anyone, although suggestions for what to expect and strategies for coping are offered. His best advice concerns medical issues with too little discussion offered on behavior and discipline issues. For instance, noting the American Academy of Pediatrics now believes spanking appropriate, he goes on to describe how this could be used in ages 19 months and up without being specific enough about just how to apply this form of discipline. Time-out is also described as possibly "standing in the corner." Stating this without any explanation seems inappropriate. Four sentences are devoted to sex in the section on the teenage years. As far as medical advice is concerned, the book is well done. On other issues, parents will need to look further. An index and section on recording family health issues is provided. 2002(1997), Quill Druer Books/Word Dancer Press, Ages Adult.

At last! A book that cuts through the confusion and gives new parents clear, simple advice. Dr. Weinberg's guide is a breath of fresh air and will make a welcome addition to any parent's book shelf.

    The Pediatriian's New Baby Owner's manuel

    Dr. Weinberg was our family pediatrician, and I can not express enough the value of this book. I just purchased it for my son who is expecting his first child.

    cute, portable, informative

    This is a great gift book -- the cover is delightful, and beyond that, it was written by a pediatrician so it's packed with serious information. The tone is reasuring and offers support and suggestions on every page. It's the perfect gift for baby showers because it won't frighten new parents, but when the baby arrives and they need real help and advice -- they'll be able to find everything.
