Your Seven-Year-Old: Life in A Minor Key Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Your Seven-Year-Old is devoted to the delightful but often anxious and withdrawn child of Seven. Although any seven-year-old will have moments of exuberance, security, and happiness, in general this is an age of introspection. As it begins, parents and teachers may welcome the quiet after the tussles and tangles of Six. But once the child of Seven starts to withdraw it’s almost as though he doesn't know where or when to stop. Seven-year-olds feel picked on by family, friends, and teachers alike; they worry that no one likes them; they expect every little task to prove too difficult to handle; tears come easily at this age.

 

With wit and wisdom, Dr. Ames of the highly respected Gesell Institute and Carol Chase Haber offer insights into what children this age are feeling and thinking, and how parents can best deal with these moody, serious Sevens.

 

Included in this book:

• New body awareness

• Sulking

• Concerns about fairness

• Stories from real life

• Fascination with horror, gore

• Threats of running away from home

• Life in the second grade

• Books for Sevens and the parents of Sevens

 

“Louise Bates Ames and her colleagues synthesize a lifetime of observation of children, consultation, and discussion with parents. These books will help parents to better understand their children and will guide them through the fascinating and sometimes trying experiences of modern parenthood.”—Donald J. Cohen, M.D., Director, Yale Child Study Center, Irving B. Harris Professor of Child Psychiatry, Pediatrics, and Psychology, Yale School of Medicine

Synopsis:

Following the successful series that includes Your One, Two, Three, Four, Five, and Six Year Old, this look at seven-year-olds is filled with valuable insights and advice essential for parents of children this age. Photographs.
