Now in a three-part edition that incorporates the latest research on pediatric brain development, Watch Me Grow: I'm One-Two-Three helps parents in their decision-making by explaining how children experience the world during the wondrous toddler years.

In addition to offering the most current research on age-appropriate behavior and sharing parenting stories, this book also gives sound advice from an expert on child development.

About the Author:

Maureen O’Brien, Ph.D., is a recognized expert in child development and a research associate in pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, a consultant to the Brazelton Touchpoints Center at Children’s Hospital in Boston and an adjunct assistant professor at Bentley College. A mother of twins, she lives with her family in Canton, Massachusetts.

From Publishers Weekly:

O'Brien, formerly director of the Brazelton Touchpoints Center at Boston's Children's Hospital, and Tippins, a writer in the child development field, have reprinted their first two volumes (Watch Me Grow: I'm One; Watch Me Grow, I'm Two) and added a section for the 38- to 48-month-old preschooler to complete this set. Parents who derived help and comfort from the first two books will certainly enjoy this compilation. The authors combine the latest research in child development with an array of engaging and sometimes humorous child-rearing anecdotes (some from OBrien's own experiences with her twins) to make sense of the seemingly incomprehensible actions of a toddler or preschooler. For example, when a three-year-old deliberately misbehaves by eating cookies right before dinner, this child may actually be seeking reassurance that parental love is constant. O'Brien advises that when a child tests in this manner, parents should try to put their frustration with the behavior aside and provide their son or daughter with the limits they are seeking without anger. As in the first two volumes, O'Brien and Tippins discuss physical, cognitive and emotional development, stressing that children mature at different rates and their progress should be looked at individually. The strength of this guide lies in the author's ability to present children's actions and feelings from the child's rather than an adult's perspective. A clearly written, positive guide. Photos.
