This book has taught me so much ( and I haven't even completed tit .. almost though)!
Times change, people don't .. Well at least not on a fundamental/developmental level. This book was originally written in the 1940's I believe .. it's amazing how accurate and applicable much of the information is for today ... 2011 .. three quarters of a century later.
Dr. Gesell spells out the characteristics of each stage of development in such a way that it's almost a go-to guide for infant/child rearing. It truly emphasizes (by example) how important it is to lay a proper foundation in the early development. Discusses how various environmental & external factors influence the development/evolution of a child's personality.
Really goes into great detail with various critical phases/stages of child development, along with behavioral characteristics to help guide the parents. Focusing on birth to 5 years. I'd purchase it for all first time parents if I could.
Provocative, well written, applicable & scientifically based! Totally Recommend!
This book holds up over the years with it's insight into development and behavior.
Based on a longitudinal study of children starting in the 1930's, this book describes behavior of children at certain ages. It does not tell you how to raise your child. It simply tells you what to expect at 3 months, two years, eight years, etc. Instead of perceiving your child's behavior as peculiar or bad (and therefore punishing the child), the parent can see the behavior as normative. It enables acceptance of your child as he or she is and should be.
