"Today's parents need a resource that fits their busy lifestyles, providing brief and pointed answers to the daily questions 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.
