I love that he tells you what behaviors to look for in your child to determine where they are developmentally, then detailing what decisions and choices your child is CAPABLE of. It takes the guess work out of what to expect and how to deal with those milestones - like "terrible twos" - we know all children go through in their own way and on their on clock. I was able to pick strategies that targeted what my child COULD do instead of beating my head against the wall with "popular methods" that my child was incapable of complying with developmentally.
As a parent, he talks about the hurdles he had to overcome with his children and different things that worked at different times that are appropriate to the stage the child is in. So he's giving me science, not gimmicks, which he has tested and found successful. During my children raising years, I kept this book close at hand - in the bathroom, on the bedside table - to reread and rethink how to handle my ever changing population in my house, and Dr. L. was a wonderful mentor.
I especially appreciate that Dr. L. discusses moral development - how to help your child make good decisions for his/herself and in relation to others. Again, this is done from a developmental standpoint, not a religious one, although it is certainly helpful in choosing what kind of religious guidelines to give your child at different ages.Read more ›
