Your child from birth to eight (3rd edition)

Australian Council for Educational Research, Australia, 2012

The book provides a practical guide to the physical, emotional, social and cognitive development of young children, with a focus on fostering the bond between parent and child. While children develop differently in accordance with their genetic inheritance and environment, the book defines the steps which help parents to know what milestones children can be expected to reach at different ages and stages.

Ideas about suitable activities and toys for children as they grow are provided. Tips and advice on issues to do with behaviour, emotions, temperament, toilet training, new siblings, sexual development and starting school are conveyed in an accessible and supportive style.
