For parents of children from six months up to seven years, an accessible guide to the psychological aspects of parenting focusing on how to nurture a confident child Parenting is one of the biggest challenges anyone can face, and yet nobody has delivered the perfect formula to make it easy. Recognizing this, clinical psychologist and parenting expert Linda Blair provides an easy to follow guide to parenting that is easily adaptable to individual circumstances. Blair divides childhood into three stages of development: infancy, preschool, and starting school. She concentrates on a child’s psychological development and how to raise a happy, well adjusted child, as well as providing practical advice and addressing common problems which may arise. This is a book which both provides parenting guidelines as well as encouraging parents to trust their own instincts, and, above all, does not underestimate the challenges parents face.
