The Happy Child: Everything you Need to Know to Raise Enthusiastic, Confident Children by Linda Blair

In this practical, reassuring book, clinical psychologist and parenting expert Linda Blair helps parents understand what their child is experiencing physically and emotionally at various stages of development and how they can use this knowledge to develop their child's strengths, communicate with them more effectively and tackle common problems.
