Product description

In this warmly supportive book, Dr. Stanley Greenspan offers a set of guiding principles to help parents of children-from preschoolers to teenagers-so that they feel secure in their homes, their schools, and in their community at large. He also illuminates the often subtle shifts in children's behavior that signal reaction to current stress and fears and gives parents concrete suggestions to help children handle their anxieties. The Secure Child will help families everywhere move toward the common goal of a more stable and secure future.
