Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Both parents and grandparents, the authors are also child psychiatrists who did a 30-year study of children growing into adulthoodthe New York Longitudinal Study. Their new work is scholarly but written in a style that makes it completely accessible to those of us who are not experts in the field. Further, the authors are honest, distinguishing prejudice and opinioneven theirsfrom common sense and fact. Among their basic propositions are that babies are human from the start, that babies differ from one another, and that babies are always learning. A crucial consideration is "goodness of fit"how the temperaments of parents and children do or don't mesh. This important book really can help parents know their children. Highly recommended.John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ. Lib., New York
