    Excellent Guide to Ease Parenting

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book! So easy to read. Not forceful on any issue. It's as if you're sitting in his office and he's speaking to you. It eased my worries and made me feel so much more relaxed about my child's behavior and my own behavior. I'm ordering the 3-6 book now.

    A Must-Have Parenting Book

    I refer to this book for all three of my children and even give it out to new parents. It has helped me learn what to expect with my children emotionally and through changes in behavior. From your newborn's fussy stage and sleeping patterns to what it means to have a spoiled child, which he refers to as an anxious child, searching for limits. This book is wonderful and has supported me tremendously, so much I am excited to go out and buy his just released book Touchpoints for ages beyond 3 years to 6. I think you should too. Be wary of any Babywise books---------too rigid. Dr. Brazelton is the best!

    Surviving the emotional early years

    In the early years, emotions play a very strong role in how you child reponds to and reacts to his or her world. This is the guidebook for deciphering why they act the way they do. Many books cover the physical changes of the first years, but few really discuss your child's emotional growth. I've read a lot of parenting books in a effort to understand what is going on during the various stages of my childrens' lives. This is the book I find myself referring to again and again. It is indispensable in coping with the young, energetic, emotional bundles of joy I call my children.
