Touchpoints Three to Six: Your Child’s Emotional and Behavioral Development

This book offers a simple theory and plenty of sound advice to parents who struggle with their child’s ever-changing moods and behaviors. Noted pediatrician T. Berry Brazelton, M.D., builds on his theory that kids essentially “rev up” prior to reaching developmental milestones (like walking, talking, and potty training). Unfortunately for the whole family, such revving typically involves temper tantrums, night waking, and regression. Teaming with child psychiatrist Joshua D. Sparrow, M.D., Dr. Brazelton offers compassionate suggestions for recognizing key touchpoints in children 3 to 6 years old, helping kids work through them, and keeping one’s cool throughout the process.
