Overview


All over the U.S. and in over twenty countries around the world, Touchpoints has become required reading for anxious parents of babies and small children. T. Berry Brazelton's great empathy for the universal concerns of parenthood, and honesty about the complex feelings it engenders, as well as his uncanny insight into the predictable leaps and regressions of early childhood, have comforted and supported families since its publication in 1992. In this completely revised edition Dr. Brazelton introduces new information on physical, emotional, and behavioral development. He also addresses the new stresses on families and fears of children, with a fresh focus on the role of fathers and other caregivers. This updated volume also offers new insights on prematurity, sleep patterns, early communication, toilet training, co-sleeping, play and learning, SIDS, cognitive development and signs of developmental delay, childcare, asthma, a child's immune system, and safety. Dr. Sparrow, Brazelton's co-author on several other books, brings a child psychiatrist's insights into the many perennial childhood issues covered in this comprehensive book. No parent should be without the reassurance and wisdom Touchpoints provides.

As an early childhood educator and mother of a seven year old I have read many parenting and child development books. Brazelton is one of the greats. He speaks with his heart and many years of experiences. New parents will find this book to be very inviting and full of a wealth of information to help them get to know their baby and what to expect.

The book was a good read, I was using it as a reference for a paper that I was writing. Although it didn't fit what I was talking about it is good for first time parents that want some insight on what to do with their baby.

My mom gave me this book, she used it when I was a baby. I loved it. Finally a book that gives practical advice on rasising your child with love and understanding. I never believed in letting her cry it out, or over disciplining, and Dr Brazelton doesn't either. He gives you advice on how to help your child and teach them skills to comfot themselves without causing a lot of crying and sadness. I used many of these techniques with my daughter, and she is an amazing 3 year old. She is very smart and loving and we get compliments all the time of how sweet she is. Her teachers love her at preschool and everyone who is around her is immediately charmed. I owe a lot of it to this book and Dr. Brazelton and his ideas and techniques. This is a great book for a mom who wants to teach their child love and compassion.
