A book like this reminds us that each child is an individual and not just a symptom, disorder, or disease.” (A Top 10 Book for Parenting Children with Disabilities)
This is a major new edition of a parenting classic which has sold over 1 million copies worldwide, and been translated into 30 languages. "Touchpoints" has become required reading for anxious parents of babies and small children. In this book, Brazelton's great empathy for the universal concerns of parenthood, and honesty about the complex feelings it engenders, as well as his uncanny insight into the predictable leaps and regressions of early childhood, have comforted and supported families since the first publication in 1992. In this updated edition, he introduces new medical information, guidance for the new stresses on families and fears of children, and a fresh focus on the role of fathers and other caregivers. Dr. Sparrow, Brazelton's co-author on several other books, brings a child psychiatrist's insights into the many perennial childhood issues covered in this comprehensive book.
