I would suggest there is nothing more important to the preservation and advancement of human beings than understanding infant and child development.
Recently I ran across the work of two esteemed child analysts and fellow members of the American Psychoanalytic Association, who are sharing their wonderful ideas about parenting. Kerry Kelly Novick is an author and child, adolescent and adult psychoanalyst from Ann Arbor, Michigan and Don Rosenblitt is the Clinical and Executive Director of the Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood in Cary, North Carolina.
Included in their works are online parenting advice columns by Kerry and monthly articles by Don. Both Kerry and Don are also involved with outstanding preschools: Allen Creek Preschool (Kerry) and Don at the Lucy Daniels Center. In addition, Kerry and her husband Jack have just published a marvelous book about child development and parent-child relationships called Emotional Muscle: Strong Parents, Strong Children.
I urge you to take a moment to check out these resources and let me now what you think!
