Review:

Puberty, divorce, drugs, masturbation, eating disorders, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are all waiting to ambush the unsuspecting parent in a midchild crisis, and each one is thoroughly addressed in this encyclopedic tour of the years between infancy and adolescence. In fact, the chapters that cover traditional medical problems--ear infections, stomach aches, hives, broken bones--are in the minority. Most of the clear, simple writing is devoted to social matters and the psychology of parenting. What should you do if your child is being bullied? Is it OK for a child to attend a funeral at this age? How do you control temper tantrums? Does it help to repeat a grade if your child isn't doing well in school?

The second in a three-volume series, this revised and updated guide culls advice from more than 60 pediatric specialists. As a result, it assumes a middle-of-the-road stance meant for the average parent. For detailed information about complex topics, such as learning disabilities and chronic illnesses like asthma and diabetes, parents may need to search for more specialized titles. But as a first reference and general guide, this book fills the parenting advice void in the middle years with a reassuring voice. --Jodi Mailander Farrell

From the Inside Flap:

State-of-the-art advice for mothers, fathers, and caregivers from the American Academy of Pediatrics
You've outgrown the baby books--but your school-age child needs you more than ever.
No longer are the middle years of childhood considered a time of relative calm and smooth development. During the years from five to twelve, children must master the skills and habits that determine their future health and well-being--and parents have a crucial role to play. The American Academy of Pediatrics, the organization that represents the nation's finest pediatricians and the most advanced research and practice in the field of child health from infancy to young adulthood, presents this fully revised and updated guide for parents who want to help their children thrive during these exciting and challenging years.
Comprehensive, accurate, and up-to-date, Caring for Your School-Age Child includes advice on:
Charting your child's physical, emotional, social, and intellectual growth
Dealing with the gender-specific issues facing boys and girls as they approach adolescence
Recognizing your child's important emotional and social issues, including making friends, school behavior, sex education, self-esteem, and attention deficit disorder
Maintaining discipline and authority while forging a respectful relationship with your child
Handling divorce, stepfamilies, adoption, sibling rivalry, and
dual-working-parent households
Combating procrastination, laziness, aggressiveness or shyness, and bed-wetting
Understanding your child's inborn temperament--and how it
affects the child-parent relationship
Treating childhood injuries and ailments--a comprehensivehealth guide
And much more
Caring for Your School-Age Child is an essential childcare resource for all parents who want to provide the very best care for their children--and the one guide pediatricians routinely recommend and parents can safely trust.
