Nurturing Happy, Healthy Children
by Tina Nocera
Parents Ask, Experts Answer
Whos the expert on your child? You are! But sometimes every
parent has a question. Wouldn't it be nice to have the advice
of other experts, too? Although no one has it all
out, Parents Ask, Experts Answer
empowers you by offering
caring, informed responses from a variety of trusted professionals.
Parents Ask, Experts Answer uses an "advice column"
format. Each section begins with a letter from a parent (e.g.,
"My 17-month-old son has slapped me twice when I was doing
something he didn't like, like changing his diaper. I've never
slapped him before and I don't know where he picked it up. What
do I do?") followed by responses from a panel of parenting
experts (ranging from "I suggest a brief time out" to
"Immediately say in a stern voice "No. No hitting' "
to "Don't hit to punish hitting, but don't ignore it, either").
This provides a range of responses, helping the reader see that
there may be several helpful approaches to solving the problem.
You will be empowered to choose a realistic solution that is right
for your family. (244 pp.)
