An expert guide to the joys and challenges of parenting young children-from the renowned Eliot-Pearson Department that has helped children grow and learn for seventy-five years.

The Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Development at Tufts University has always applied its resources to helping parents bring up happy, healthy children. Now the faculty offers a wealth of information and advice. It addresses questions such as:

€ Why is my three-year-old suddenly bossing her playmates around?
€ Should I worry when my son seems almost hypnotized by the TV?
€ How do I avoid unintentionally "labeling" my kids?
€ Will moving to a new house be too much for my child to handle right now?

Eliot-Pearson proposes that both child and parent are learners as they grow together. With this comprehensive book, you can look forward to more growth-and fewer growing pains.
