Format: Paperback
This book allows you to get to a place that all parents wish they could be, inside their childs thoughts. I now have more understanding and MUCH more patience. It is easy now to be compassionate instead of upset since so many of my questions have been answered regarding infants moods, thoughts, feelings, and behavior. It has not only given me a new perspective on childhood behavior, it has helped me to understand my own!

Format: Paperback
This book is wonderful. It explains and delineates the phases through which babies and toddlers go as they develop, using Margaret Mahler's theories, but making them accessible to the layperson. If you ever tried to read Mahler's "The Psychological Birth of the Infant", you know how scholarly and intellectually dense a work it is (I tried, but couldn't). Further, the loving and lyrical style makes it engaging and joyous to read. I wish that fathers (I am one, to a toddler girl) would read it, too.

After working as a child therapist for more than five years, I found this book extremely thoughtful and helpful in working with children. It is beautifully written and is followed up by Dr. Kaplan's book on adolesence!

I have read this book and then given it to every new mother who is close to my heart. I first found it at a La Leche League convention when my first baby was almost a year old. I would read a part of it, then look at her, watch her act, and interact with her environment and with me. Playing peek-a-boo after reading what's happening in her mind as it develops only made me want to help her develop it more! I wish Dr. Kaplan could write another and help me with that little baby who is now a teenager!

This book is a fascinating work that follows the psychological well-being of infants in the first three years of life. Important understanding of mother-infant bonding, and a must-read for every new mom.

I have had plenty of mental health professionals tell me that Kaplan is out of date and somewhat obsolete. To some degree I can see this being true. Her writing clearly comes from an era where Mommy is THE caregiver and Dad must be off smoking cigars all day. Once I blocked out the rather single minded view of care giving that seemed to date the research to another era, it was an enjoyable read. Kaplan helps parents understand and empathize what your baby, who can't speak on their own, might be experiencing. I felt it gave me more patience because I could relate better to the frustration my son was sometimes exhibiting and it also gave some insight as to what he might need from me. Now I watch my son's crawling away and coming back to home base with a new appreciation and awe for the incredible developmental gains children have in those first years.

I have read some of Daniel Stern's more current work on infant psychology, but it didn't "speak" to me the way Kaplan does. This book is an easy read that doesn't feel too technical or to "out there".

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
this book is a treasure! i read it before, during, and after my kids were in their very early years. i have also given it to many friends who are pregant or have young children. it is a beautifully written journey about the psychological development of human infants, which grasps the complex science behind it. there is no "dumbing down" of the work in this field (predominately Margaret Mahler) but it is presented for a non-technical audience. It reads like poetry and helped me maintain my sanity during the most stressful periods of bringing up my kids during their early years.
