Rather than focusing on developmental stages by age, the authors show how development fluctuates over time and how a wide range of behavior falls within a normal curve. Parents will find answers to questions ranging from How can I prevent eating disorders or obesity from developing? to If spanking is an inappropriate form of discipline, what do I do when talking doesnt work? The book empowers parents to build healthy families in their own ways. It does so by acknowledging the diversity of individuals, families, and communities and by encouraging the view that each child and parent is unique.
