Baby Hearts: A Guide to Giving Your Child an Emotional Head Start Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone understands that developing emotional intelligence and sensitivity to other people's feelings is critical to an emotionally healthy and happy life. And yet parents often lack confidence in their ability to foster these important emotional skills. What parents need to know is that there are many steps they can take to get their child on the right emotional track, and that the ideal time to begin is between birth and age three. Renowned child development experts Linda Acredolo, Ph.D., and Susan Goodwyn, Ph.D., bring the fruits of their twenty-plus-years' research on parent-infant relationships to reveal the rich emotional lives of young babies and teach parents ways to give their baby or toddler an emotional head start during the earliest and most critical years. Translating up-to-date research findings into practical strategies and fun activities, Baby Hearts enables parents to help their children:

- Feel secure

- Express emotions effectively to promote constructive rather than destructive behavior

- Find the right balance between healthy fears and unhealthy anxieties

- Develop satisfying friendships and empathy

- Build self-esteem and self-confidence, and more
