This book represents a milestone in our understanding of what we ? parents, professionals and politicians ? must do to ensure our children get the best start in life. What Babies and Children Really Need examines the crucial early years from a child's perspective. It draws on the latest scientific research to show how the first few years determine the way children develop, body and mind, for the rest of their lives.
