Booklist Review

With the sequel to Everyday Parenting: The First Five Years [BKL Je 1 90], Goldstein and Gallant fill a void in the market. Parents may view the years six to nine as either the payoff for the care-intensive first five years or the calm before the storm of adolescence, but they are years of changes and gradual independence that bring problems of their own. The authors address issues as varied as "Should I tell my child the truth about Santa?" to how to hold family meetings to establish good communication as they reassure parents and help them form realistic expectations that are age-appropriate. ~--Tracie Richardson

Publisher's Weekly Review

The authors of Everyday Parenting: The First Five Years , Goldstein, a family and child development counselor, and Gallant, a writer, editor and English professor, here present a highly readable guide to problems and challenges that arise for parents of children aged six to nine. Beside the standard issues of, for example, sibling rivalry, school adjustment and dealing with aggression, this book also does today's parents a great service by addressing such modern conundrums as how much time children should spend watching TV and playing video games, how to deal with children's fears about AIDS, and how parents can maintain a good relationship with caregivers. Goldstein and Gallant stress the value of communication. ``If the child can express his fears, anger, and sadness, he'll feel better''p.62 is typical advice--in this case, concerning children whose families are moving. Includes suggestions for further reading. Author tour. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
