Summary
  • "Today's parents need a resource that fits their busy lifestyles, providing brief and pointed answers to the daily ques-tions that come up when you're raising kids. But most parenting books are lengthy tomes elaborating the broad principles of parenting. Parenting On-the-Go offers a novel approach to the crowded genre: an authoritative yet quick and easy reference for the harried parents of infants and children under six. Covering more than 100 key issues in succinct entries, it is both comprehensive and precise. Dr. David Elkind draws from his own research and experience as a child clinical psychologist along with the most recent studies. The American School Board Journal recently described Elkind as an expert who offers simple, practical guidance for parents and educators "to foster health, intelligence, and creativity in children." Parenting On-the-Go is a display of that expertise and comforting sensibility that tackles everything from autism spectrum disorders and daycare centers to vaccinations and taking your kids to the zoo.

  • "Parenting on the Go offers a novel approach to the crowded parenting genre. In an information economy, attention is the currency. Today, there are so many contenders for parental attention there is less time to go through the traditional parenting books. That is why today's parents of infants and young children need a resource that provides brief, to the point answers to the multitude of questions that constantly come up. This book is that resource, bringing together over 100 easy-to-digest entries of approximately 500 words each, covering a wide range of issues relying on both the most recent research and David Elkind's own 50 years of experience working both as a child clinical psychologist and as an academic researcher. Most parenting books are focused on giving broad principles of parenting. Elkind gives a few general rules as well but is mainly focused on many day-to-day issues"--
