    Your Preschooler Bible

    By Richard C. Woolfson
    Authors:
    Richard C. Woolfson
    Sharing life with a child involves a great many challenges - particularly in our digital age. In addition to keeping your child safe and healthy, 21st-century parents have to contend with things unknown to previous generations, so have little to go on when it comes to making decisions about advice gleaned from the Internet; whether a child should be allowed to use electronic devices, and if so, for how long; how to moderate the effects of celebrity culture pervading both the television and playground, as well as how to handle the current epidemic of childhood obesity. It's therefore time for a fresh approach to managing pre-school children and their care so as to ensure they are ready for school and able to relate well to their peers and teachers. Here, in addition to comprehensive advice on meeting their child's daily needs, the reader will find information on the normal course of development, how to spot problems early and be seen by the appropriate specialists, how to achieve success when dealing with negative, recalcitrant or destructive children and how to manage difficult family situations.
