Dr. Mom's Prescription for Preschoolers: Seven Essentials for the Formative Years

Marianne Neifert, Author Zondervan Publishing Company $14.99 (320p) ISBN 978-0-310-22876-9
Pediatrician Neifert (otherwise known as ""Dr. Mom"") shares sensible advice for parents (especially mothers) of preschool-age children. She encourages parents to set clear, ranked priorities during their children's formative years, and to follow seven ""essential"" guidelines for raising loving, confident kids. Among these are passing on a heritage of Christian faith, instilling healthy self-esteem and finding tender ""alternate caretakers,"" such as preschool teachers. Chapter seven delves into age-specific concerns such as potty training, tantrums and picky eating. Despite the occasional gimmicky phrase (""children spell love t-i-m-e""), Dr. Mom offers solid guidance for shepherding those delightful, willful, funny creatures called preschoolers. (July)
