When your Child is 6 to 12

Middle Childhood Is The Last Good Chance To Hold Your Child Close

We've been over-run with child-rearing manuals for infants. We've been swamped with advice for relating to teens. But little has been offered to parents whose children are in middle childhood!

John. M. Drescher, a wise voice in the field of parenting literature (whose books have sold more than 400,000 copies), addresses particular delights and difficulties of this stage in a child's life. Chapters include:

  • Holding your child
  • Reading to your child
  • The need for encouragement
  • The smart age
  • The need to belong
  • The age of imitation
  • The power of example
  • Model, Don’t Order
  • The place for praise
  • Let children be children
  • And more

All parents need help, and this small, smart, thoughtful handbook will give it to you, just when your boy or girl reaches a new stage of life.
