Publisher Comments:

Essential parenting advice from one of today's leading psychologists, at your fingertips

What is the most treasured resource for families with young children? Time. Between keeping house, shopping, doing chores, and getting everyone to work and school—let alone fitting in family meals, fun activities, and much-needed downtime—being a parent can require major feats of scheduling. While parents don't always have hours to pore over parenting books, they could use short, to-the-point advice on the challenges they confront every day.

Now, for today's busy families, child-development expert and bestselling author David Elkind offers Parenting on the Go: an authoritative, accessible guide for parents of infants and young children. Elkind has long been praised for his timely, resonant responses to key child-rearing issues. Here, with characteristic insight and comforting sensibility, he offers practical answers to more than 100 common parenting questions, on topics from A to Z, including:

Attention Deficit Disorders

Back-to-School Blues

Child-Proofing the Computer

Empathy in Children

Homework

Manners and Morals

Only Children

Sibling Rivalry

Time-Outs

and much more.

Praise for David Elkind

"The Power of Play should be considered one of the primers for good parenting."—Chicago Parent

"[O]ffers excellent perspectives on children, parents, and culture . . . this powerful book is essential reading."—Library Journal on The Hurried Child

"Elkind . . . is a child-study specialist of eminent common sense . . . whom parents would do well to heed."—Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Clinical psychologist Elkind (The Hurried Child) offers an astute and easy-to-read abecedary of tips for parenting tots. 135 short essays cover topics ranging from 'fears and rituals,' to 'music for preemies,' to 'zoos for children.' Elkind is especially attuned to questions about the challenges of parenting that were unheard of a century, or even a generation, ago, including: the spike in autism, questions about gender identity, and 'mature moms.' However, he does not wholly abandon norms of an earlier era in a embrace of contemporary mores; even though 25 percent of American meals are eaten in cars, table manners are still important, according to Elkind. This breezy but substantive guide will make a terrific baby shower present and will find a welcome place on many a bedside table. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

A resource for todays parents of infants and young children with succinct answers to the most common questions.

Synopsis:

Todays parents need a resource that fits their busy lifestyles, providing brief and pointed answers to the daily ques-tions that come up when youre raising kids. But most parenting books are lengthy tomes elaborating the broad principles of parenting. Parenting On-the-Go offers a novel approach to the crowded genre: an authoritative yet quick and easy reference for the harried parents of infants and children under six. Covering more than 100 key issues in succinct entries, it is both comprehensive and precise. Dr. David Elkind draws from his own research and experience as a child clinical psychologist along with the most recent studies. The American School Board Journal recently described Elkind as an expert who offers simple, practical guidance for parents and educators “to foster health, intelligence, and creativity in children.” Parenting On-the-Go is a display of that expertise and comforting sensibility that tackles everything from autism spectrum disorders and daycare centers to vaccinations and taking your kids to the zoo.
