Caring for Your School-Age Child: Ages 5 to 12. The Complete and Authorative Guide.
Schor, Edward L., Ed.
The middle years of childhood are challenging for both children and their parents, as children master skills and develop behaviors that will strongly influence their later health and well-being. This parenting manual offers up-to-date information and guidelines on key emotional, physical, and behavioral issues that parents of school-age children confront. The nine parts in the guide are: (1) "Promoting Health and Normal Development," including physical development, safety and injury prevention, and sexuality; (2) "Nutrition and Physical Fitness," including special diets, and physical fitness and sports; (3) "Personal and Social Development," including the child's developing sense of self, and dealing with prejudice; (4) "Behavior and Discipline," including communicating with the child, and managing common behavior problems; (5) "Emotional Problems and Behavior Disorders," including stress, habit formation, fears and phobias, and child abuse; (6) "Family Matters," including strengthening the family, developing as a parent, siblings and sibling rivalry, divorce, single parenting, and stepfamilies; (7) "Children in School," including parent involvement, and learning disorders; (8) "Chronic Health Problems," including school issues for chronically ill children, and family adjustment; and (9) "Common Medical Problems," including chronic problems such as asthma and diabetes, and common emergencies, such as bleeding, seizures, and poisoning.
