About The Book

Today's child is different. Computers, the internet, a globalized world, and a changing family structure have made today's child more aware and more ambitious. At the same time, today's child is the same as yesterday's child. She still has the innate need to be creative, the inner urge to question, learn, play, fit in, and have fun, and interact with parents and peers. The avenues for exploring the world have dramatically changed, but at the core the child remains the same. With the right upbringing, today's child, who already has the advantage of a world of boundless opportunities, can blossom into being a fulfilled, well-balanced adult.In the past few years, much research has been conducted into the techniques and modalities of bringing up children. Children's needs have been identified, their behavior has been analyzed and remedial methods have been developed. In this book, eminent professionals and practicing child consultants explain every aspect of child development. The book offers tips and methods to help make the upbringing experience a pleasurable one – both for the parent and for the child. A valuable referral source, the book has received a tremendous response.
