A leading child psychiatrist and author of The Challenging Child redefines the essential qualities of a intellectually and emotionally healthy child--including curiosity, empathy, and logical thinking--and explains how parents can help youngsters develop and enhance each quality.

Perseus Publishing
Parents all over the world have certain universal aspirations. They want their children to contribute meaningfully to society and to pursue their own dreams. But we appear to be missing the essentials. In this inspiring book, based on 30 years of research and practice, Dr. Stanley Greenspan redefines the qualities of an emotionally and intellectually healthy child and identifies the ways that parents can help their children develop each quality. The qualities that make us call a child a ?great kid,” such as empathy, curiosity, and logical thinking, are fundamental and underlie all the academic, athletic, and social talents that a child might develop. We are not born with these traits, Greenspan demonstrates, they come from experience, which suggests that each and every parent can encourage them and that each and every child can strive to acquire them.

The book that will bring the sweetest words of all to a parent’s ears: ?What great kids you have!”
