When Your Child Needs You: A Parents' Guide Through the Early Years

Eleanor Weisberger, Author Adler & Adler Publishers $16.95 (213p) ISBN 978-0-917561-31-3
Child therapist Weisberger here expands and updates advice contained in her previous book, Your Young Child and You (1975). She stresses that the needs of children under five require special attention today, in families where both the mother and the father work outside the home. The writing reflects a warm, empathetic person restating the importance of parental concern for and intimacy with their small children. There are practical suggestions for handling situations linked to toilet training and other disciplines as well as more serious problems that may arise: a toddler is hospitalized or separated from parents temporarily, traumatized by divorce, etc. Weisberger offers counseling to fathers, in view of their greater role in child care in these times when over half the mothers hold outside jobs.
