Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book for parents of young children. It starts out with year-by-year chapters on the developmental changes for one to five-year-olds. Then it goes on to chapters on specific problems of young childhood, such as toileting or grieving or moving away. These chapters include quotes and ideas from many authorities and writers on parenting. I would always wonder, looking at a book by one author, whether one person could have all the right answers for parents' problems. This book gives you the best of many ideas, plus lists of books and resources, should you need more help on any problem. But it isn't just about problems. There are descriptions of projects and games to do with the kids, too. It would make a great baby shower gift or a gift for a parent on a child's first birthday.

Format: Paperback
This fantastic resource is one that I can't imagine doing without. Throughout the past three years, I have grabbed this great 580-page guide and easily found advice and ideas about everything from whining to macaroni art! The Field Guide to Parenting is organized so that you can find this fast, with development stages listed for benchmarking your child's accomplishments, then great ideas for projects and fun games that enhance mental, physical and emotional growth, followed by a huge section that covers more than 60 topics. Each topic is explained, expectations listed, approaches to dealing with that subject from experts in child development, when to get more help and a resource section listing Web sites, books, videos, 800 numbers and more!
What I like the most about this book is that one person is not telling me what is the "right" way to parent. The compilation of advice comes from so many experts that the reader can choose what is right for him or her. This is a welcome change from the trends in parenting styles that seem to dominate the shelves.
I highly recommend having this book around from birth (even before when there is time to read!) to well past your child's 5th birthday. Mine is well worn, and still on an easy-to-reach shelf!

A key to finding success as a parent is to have realistic expectations for behavior and development. This book packs an incredible amount of good advice from a wide variety of experts into an accessible guide. A great handbook for parents to keep on hand - you'll refer to it over and over again.

The Field Guide to Parenting is the best 'user friendly' book on parenting today. This book provides quality and reliable information in practical language. The Field Guide to Parenting is what every parent &/or educator needs for today's busy lifestyle. As a parent/family life educator, i consider this book a must for all book shelves, in homes, schools, libraries, counseling offices, community centers....wherever, parents congregate!
Buy one for yourself, a friend and your child's teacher.
sincerely,
joan Henderson
