Your Six-Year-Old: Loving and Defiantby Louise Bates Ames
The six-year-old is a complex child, entirely different from the five-year-old. Though many of the changes are for the good -- Six is growing more mature, more independent, more daring and adventurous -- this is not necessarily an easy time for the little girl or boy. Relationships with mothers are troubled -- most of the time Six adores mother, but whenever things go wrong, it's her fault. It used to be, at Five, that she was the center of the child's universe; now, the child is the center of his own universe.
Parents need the expert advice of Drs. Ames and Ilg during this difficult year, to explain parent-child relations, friendships with peers, what six-year-olds excel at, how they see the world, what it feels like to be entering the first grade. Children need patience and understanding to help make this transition easier.

Incredibly helpful and reassuring book. Allows you to see inside your child's head! I was ready to ship my son off to military school or seek help until I read this book! Now I realize what he is thinking and how I can help him. It helps calm us both down and get to what really matters!
