    Essential parenting advice from one of today's leading psychologists, at your fingertips

    What is the most treasured resource for families with young children? Time. Between keeping house, shopping, doing chores, and getting everyone to work and school—let alone fitting in family meals, fun activities, and much-needed downtime—being a parent can require major feats of scheduling. While parents don't always have hours to pore over parenting books, they could use short, to-the-point advice on the challenges they confront every day.

    Now, for today's busy families, child-development expert and bestselling author David Elkind offers Parenting on the Go: an authoritative, accessible guide for parents of infants and young children. Elkind has long been praised for his timely, resonant responses to key child-rearing issues. Here, with characteristic insight and comforting sensibility, he offers practical answers to more than 100 common parenting questions, on topics from A to Z, including:
    Attention Deficit Disorders
    Back-to-School Blues
    Child-Proofing the Computer
    Empathy in Children
    Homework
    Manners and Morals
    Only Children
    Sibling Rivalry
    Time-Outs
    and much more.
