Robin Goldstein, Author Penguin Books $6.95 (224p) ISBN 978-0-14-014729-2
The authors of Everyday Parenting: The First Five Years , Goldstein, a family and child development counselor, and Gallant, a writer, editor and English professor, here present a highly readable guide to problems and challenges that arise for parents of children aged six to nine. Beside the standard issues of, for example, sibling rivalry, school adjustment and dealing with aggression, this book also does today's parents a great service by addressing such modern conundrums as how much time children should spend watching TV and playing video games, how to deal with children's fears about AIDS, and how parents can maintain a good relationship with caregivers. Goldstein and Gallant stress the value of communication. ``If the child can express his fears, anger, and sadness, he'll feel better''p.62 is typical advice--in this case, concerning children whose families are moving. Includes suggestions for further reading. Author tour. (Mar.)
