Publisher Comments:

This newest edition of Penelope Leach’s much-loved, trusted, and comprehensive classic—an international best seller for twenty-five years, with nearly two million copies sold in America alone—encompasses the latest research and thinking on child development and learning, and reflects the realities of today’s changing lifestyles.

In her authoritative and practical style, Leach responds fully to parents’ every concern about the psychological, emotional, and physical well-being of their children. She describes, in easy-to-follow stages from birth through starting school, how children develop: what they are doing, experiencing, and feeling. And she tackles both the questions parents often ask—What does a new baby’s wakefulness or a toddler’s tantrum mean?—and those that are more difficult: How should new parents time their return to work, choose day care, tell a child about a new baby or an impending divorce?

Whatever the concern or question, Your Baby and Child supplies the information, encouragement, and reassurance every parent-to-be or new parent needs.

Synopsis:

Dr. Leach describes - in easy-to-follow stages, from birth through starting school - what is happening to your child, what he or she is doing, experiencing and feeling. She tackles the questions parents often ask and the ones they dare not. Whether your concern is a new baby's wakefulness, a toddler's tantrums, a preschool child's shyness, aggression or nightmares, or how to time your return to work, choose day care or tell a child about a new baby or an impending divorce, the information you need to make your own decisions is right here.

Synopsis:

The essential guide to caring for your child from birth to age five. The New York Times hails it as "the thinking parent's guide."

About the Author

Penelope Leach was educated at Cambridge University and at the London School of Economics, where she received her Ph.D. in psychology, after which she studied many aspects of child development and child-rearing under the auspices of Britain's Medical Research Council. A Fellow of the British Psychological Society and a founding member of the UK branch of the World Association for Infant Mental Health, she works on both sides of the Atlantic and in various capacities for organizations concerned with prenatal care and birth, family-friendly working practices, day care and early-years education. She currently co-directs a major program of research in the UK into the effects of various forms and combinations of care on children's development from birth to school age.

I raised my daughter using this book, and as long as I followed her advice things turned out fine. When I deviated, I ran into problems (like NOT listening to Leach, and trying someone else's poddy training instructions. Disaster). This is a sane, compassionate program for raising and understanding children. I read all the rest, (Spock, Brazelton, etc) but her advice worked and made sense. Her explanation of the difference between spoiling and loving is simple and brilliant, and enough reason alone to buy the book.
