Description

This is a guide to parenthood in which the author, who has herself had children and who candidly confesses to having made mistakes, approaches the subject with fresh understanding. Dorothy Einon combines the wisdom of her own experience with a detailed knowledge of the most recent advances in childcare research to produce new insights into various aspects of the topic, both physical and psychological. As well as dealing with a whole range of practical matters, from diet and clothing during pregnancy to labour pains, breast-feeding and infant illnesses, she explores the emotional development, both independent and interdependent, of offspring and parents, looking at the psychological growth of the child as an individual and at relationships within the family unit. The text, which is divided into over 750 numbered sections, allows for easy reference and cross-referencing and is fully indexed and illustrated throughout. Dorothy Einon is also the author of "Creative Play".show more
