This book in particular helped me to recognize the different personality temperaments of my own three kids, and gave me ideas of what to expect from them in different situations, as well as ideas about how I can help them through scary times. I especailly liked the "How would you feel?" sections throughout the book that help the reader see the world through a toddler's eyes.
The set of Dr. Goodwyn & Dr. Acredolo's three books: Baby Signs, Baby Hearts & Baby Minds are the closest thing a parent will find to an "operators manual" for babies!
If you are working parents: how to make the best of the time you are able to spend together. the influences of caregivers etc.
Most think parenting comes naturaly. Well some are better at it than others. This book is a great resource for new and vetrain parents(and grand parents).
I am going to give it as a gift to my new mom friends.And I hope and look forward to the next edition for ages 4 and up!!
I know I will eventually read the whole book, but until I do, this handy Guide will work wonders and give me the "Words of Wisdom" I need to help my children grow!
