Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A columnist by trade (Boston Globe, Child Rearing), Meltz has opportunity to interview a range of child development experts. Her book addresses almost every issue affecting children into their teen years. Siblings, drugs, biting, clothing, homosexuality, blended families, Disney movies, summer camp, hero worship, bullies, and more?every milestone (and millstone) parents face is included. Meltz dispenses straightforward and specific advice about how to handle various crises of child rearing. Traditionalists may quarrel with Meltz's opinions concerning gays and open communication with children; she espouses a commitment to truthfulness, setting firm limits, and trying to see the world from the child's viewpoint. Though lacking a formal introduction or summation, this is a good encyclopedic handbook to use as needed through the childhood years. Extensive notes and recommendations take the place of a formal bibliography. More practical than academic, this should circulate very well in public libraries.?Margaret Cardwell, Georgia Perimeter Coll., Clarkston

Review

"What a wonderful collection-of stories, of understanding your child, and of suggestions about how to deal with the issues.  And [Meltz] addresses issues no one else dares to face...well researched and beautifully presented."
--T. Berry Brazelton, M.D.

"A truly accessible guide that is right on target in helping parents to understand their children, whatever their age.  Barbara Meltz offers solid, important information that is highly readable and never preachy."
--Nancy Samalin, M.S., author of Loving Each One Best, and director of Parent Guidance Workshops, New York City

This parent friendly book offers insightful advice and practical information on a range of perplexing child rearing issues. The perspective of the child is unique and invaluable. As a psychologist, author (The Complete Single Mother)and the single mother of two, I recommend this thoughtful and thorough book as a "must have". You will turn to this book again and again for help with a wide range of challening parenting problems.

Format: Paperback
Recently, I wrote Ms. Meltz regarding one of her regular parenting columns in the Boston Globe. Then, I remembered that I had a copy of her book, Put Yourself In Their Shoes, and e-mailed her the following day: I am glad that Dr. Brazelton encouraged you to undertake your column and predicated that you would write a book. I bought your book for reference purposes and I want you to know that I enjoy referring to it. To me, it is a breath of fresh air. You share information and observations WITH parents, about their children, in a refreshing manner .... with a voice that is empathetic to both ... you don't talk AT them. Thanks again.
Regards,
Elizabeth Milligan Maynard, MA
