Item Description...
The first three years of a child's life are a crucial time for development of healthy self-esteem and a positive attitude towards learning. This guide can help you make the most of those precious early years. Its unique blend of practical advice on daily concerns and insights on social and emotional development can help everyone who cares for a little one -- from first-time parents to professional caregivers.

What causes colic? when do babies begin talking. How can I prevent tantrums? The First Years answers these questions and offers suggestions on how to most effectively encourage and praise your little one as he or she tackles the challenges of growing into a healthy toddler. In language that is easy to understand, the authors describe the stages of language acquisition, play styles, emotional and physical needs, and other developmental milestones. the book also provides over 75 full-color photographs illustrating the techniques discussed, over 25 special boxes with useful tips, 25 boxes with expert advice, and a thorough list of resources to contact for special concerns.

Drawing from professional expertise and personal experience, the authors help you encourage your child's good eating and exercise habits, emotional growth, and communication skills. All information has been reviewed by the I Am Your Child Foundation, a national organization devoted to raising public awareness about the importance of learning in a child's first years of life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Building a life of confident learning...  Aug 12, 2002
"Raising a child is the most important job you'll ever have." ~Rob Reiner

The First Years is a book that was created in conjunction with I Am Your Child, a national organization that focuses on raising public awareness about the importance of learning during the first three years of a child's life.

The contents include:

Getting to know me: birth to nine months
I can do it myself: 9-18 months
On my way: 18-36 months

During the first three years of a child's life there is so much more going on than just the physical/visual development. What is going on in a child's mind? Are they developing a healthy self-esteem and a positive attitude towards learning?

Are you sure your baby feels loved and secure? They discuss the myth about not picking up your infant when he/she cries too much. I have always wondered about this aspect, because I think it is natural for a mother to want to comfort an infant who is crying and it seems unnatural to leave a child crying for ages in a crib when you are who they depend on. This book also tells you that it is normal for babies to cry for certain periods of time during various stages.

Some of the highlights include: The advantages of Breast feeding, Establishing Routines, How Babies Communicate and a discussion about how you can encourage your baby to communicate with you through "self-talk."

I also enjoyed the section on: Why Babies Cry and what to do about it, Understanding your child's unique temperament, Teaching self-discipline, Language and Learning, Play Time, Childproofing the house, The stage from crawling to walking and how to deal with crib-climbers.

Questions they answer include:

What causes colic and what is the normal duration of crying?
When do babies begin talking?
Why do children bite?
How can I prevent tantrums?
How do you provide your child with the best nutrition?
How often should you visit the doctor?
Will you ever get enough sleep again?
What do I do when my baby won't stop crying?
Is baby talk ok?

This guide will encourage you to make the most of those first few years that can be so crucial to your child's development. Knowing about each stage of our baby's development makes it a bit easier to meet your baby's needs.

~The Rebecca Review
