If it's a developmental issue, you'll find it in this book and what's more, you'll understand it a little better and be better able to decide what to do about it, if anything. It's always a happy thing when you find out that your child is not disturbed---but simply age four. This is a helpful and reassuring book.
This remarkable book discusses the many phases of development of children from birth to six years of age. By giving three personality tracts which show both female and male interests, the author has developed many behavior variations seen in preschoolers. There are charts which compare the age changes and alerts to possible deviations in development. The book itself is written in an easy to read style and is cross referenced so that one can find answers to specific questions as necessary. This is a well written ready reference which should reassure parents.
I love the easy to read charts, which graphs the age changes and alerts to possible problems in development. (But the author is not an alarmist, and uses a sense of humor delivering the info.) The book give you a better understanding of why your child is the way she is and even better, techniques that work in a variety of situations and age groups.
I have recommended this book to my friends as the book that "has it all"! I'm sure it will become dog-eared in the next 5 years the many times I'll reference it.
