"Pays off in relief to unnecessarily worried parents and in sound advice to those with children in serious trouble...Several qualities make this book outstanding."
"Sober, readable perspective on troubled behavior...walking that fine line between interpretation for a general audience and professional acumen...a competent, almost understated introduction to an often over-dramatized subject."
"The work of a sensitive psychologist."
--Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
"This reassuring book gives sound advice to worried parents whose children are in serious trouble."
--The Journal-Gazette (Fort Wayne, Indiana)
"...defines the natural periods of stress in a child's life and the ways in which the child may manifest his problems. Parents receive explanations which may help them overcome their own fears and sensitivity so they may deal most effectively with children during these problem periods."
--The Reporter Dispatch (White Plains, New York)
