Overview

What happened to that sunny outgoing child of eight?  As parents of nine-year-olds often discover, nine is a tricky age.  Children are more distant from Mother and Father; they're more independant and rely on friends for companionship, or they have a tendency to spend time alone.  Some nines are boisterous and wild, others thoughtful and withdrawn.  Helping parents learn how to cope with the unpredictable nine-year-old is the aim of this practical guide from the Gesell Institute.

Nine-year-olds are hovering on the brink of adolescence, and this in part contributes to their up-and-down nature.  Dr. Louis Bates Ames and Carol Chase Haber paint a vivid picture of the child at this age and offer useful advice to make life easier for parents and children alike.

    A book series that every parent should own!

    I have purchased these books as my eldest has nearly reached the age discussed and then read them again to remind my self of what to expect as my daughter catches up. Each one is spot on... it is almost as if the writers have interviewed my specific children! This book, and many of the others, have made me laugh out loud with their description of my child's behavior and has even brought tears to my eyes having been reassured that my child is so perfectly normal. I value these books tremendously and appreciate the writing style and easy presentation of materials.
