9780060931186: An Ounce of Prevention: How Parents Can Stop Childhood Behavioral and Emotional Problems Before They Start

Most parents understand the importance of prevention when it comes to their child's health or physical safety. From arranging well-child visits to the pediatrician to instilling the essential mantra "Never speak to strangers," a parent's job is clear. But what many parents do not realize is that it is also possible to prevent behavioral and psychological problems before they start.

In An Ounce of Prevention, child psychologist Lawrence Shapiro presents a variety of imaginative, highly successful strategies for handling the pivotal moments in every child's emotional development -- from infancy throughout the teenage years. Using concrete, scientifically proven advice and wonderful examples, Dr. Shapiro helps you understand whether your child is at risk for specific problems and what you can do, and he offers preventive advice on such subjects as shyness, depression, fallout from divorce, ADHD, and much more.
