Caring For Your School-Age Child

​Caring for Your School-Age Child is an essential childcare resource for all parents who want to provide the very best care for their children! This comprehensive health reference and a complete guide to the complex developmental issues of the middle years includes more than 100 illustrations and offers up-to-date information on various topics.

Raising Your Spirited Child

​The spirited child—often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"—possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. In this revised edition of the award-winning classic, voted one of the top twenty books for parents, Kurcinka provides vivid examples and a refreshingly positive viewpoint.

Waking Up Dry

​Parents and children can address the challenges of bedwetting together with this delightful book that guides them through Dr. Bennett's Waking Up Dry Program. Along the way, they will meet Bladderman, who graduated from superhero school years ago, and his 9-year-old fried Nephron, who wants to be a superhero when he grows up. The two join forces with parent-child teams to win the battle of becoming dry at night.

Smart but Scattered

The latest research in child development shows that many kids who have the brain and heart to succeed lack or lag behind in crucial “executive skills”--the fundamental habits of mind required for getting organized, staying focused, and controlling impulses and emotions. Learn easy-to-follow steps to identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses, use activities and techniques proven to boost specific skills, and problem-solve daily routines. Small changes can add up to big improvements--this empowering book shows how.
