    Probably the most important book in my library for the first 10 years of my kids lives It was the book to turn to when they had spots or fevers or just would not go to sleep Dr Spock always gave common sense advice The reference guide to symptoms in the back was invaluablethan once in answering the huge question every new parent has it is 2 00 in the morning should I call the doctor for this, or can it wait until morning

    This is a wonderful book for ALL parents to read Actually, it s a wonderful book for ANYONE to read, even children It discusses human development in a way that is useful for those who are guiding a child s development and those interested in their own development which should be everyone Most importantly the book is written to educate and encourage, rather than to preach and frighten It helps the parent approach every situation with the basic knowledge needed It also gives great resources This is a wonderful book for ALL parents to read Actually, it s a wonderful book for ANYONE to read, even children It discusses human development in a way that is useful for those who are guiding a child s development and those interested in their own development which should be everyone Most importantly the book is written to educate and encourage, rather than to preach and frighten It helps the parent approach every situation with the basic knowledge needed It also gives great resources for further information on specific needs, including children s books that might help at certain moments Since the book covers all stages of childhood and all types of children, certain portions may never apply to any one child or family My strategy was to read the whole book so that I have been exposed to the whole gamut of parenting questions I certainly won t remember all of the advice, but the general approaches will stick with me and I can go back and understandquickly as certain situations arise Besides, I m sure picking colleges will be here before we know it And with every question, now I have at least some knowledge so that when questions come, especially when they come from our child, I won t be struck entirely dumb

    My mother gave all her daughters, daughter in laws, many nieces, then started with granddaughters as they made her a great grandma, a copy of Dr Spock s Baby and Childcare My copy was a much earlier edition than this one.I referred back to the book many times as my babies matured into toddlers, and so on I say it was okay, because I never read it cover to cover it got boring Many of my peers felt intimidated by the book s advice, fearing they would do something wrong I do not recall exact My mother gave all her daughters, daughter in laws, many nieces, then started with granddaughters as they made her a great grandma, a copy of Dr Spock s Baby and Childcare My copy was a much earlier edition than this one.I referred back to the book many times as my babies matured into toddlers, and so on I say it was okay, because I never read it cover to cover it got boring Many of my peers felt intimidated by the book s advice, fearing they would do something wrong I do not recall exactly as Dr Spock said it, but it was what I most remembered and adhered to if we could not remember what to do in an emergency or for illness, to do the first thing we thought of doing which would usually be correct.That worked for me often I would refer to the book after the fact and learn I had handled things in manner Spock prescribed

    Well what can I say about this There are some very useful sections which are still relevant to modern day parenting and the sections on first aid were quite useful.However, there are some sections I cringed at and I KNOW that it s because it s a product of its time but it said multiple times about a father wanting to come in from work and reading the paper, and the role of men and women being so very different The final indication to how old this book is, was the small section on mongolism A Well what can I say about this There are some very useful sections which are still relevant to modern day parenting and the sections on first aid were quite useful.However, there are some sections I cringed at and I KNOW that it s because it s a product of its time but it said multiple times about a father wanting to come in from work and reading the paper, and the role of men and women being so very different The final indication to how old this book is, was the small section on mongolism A disturbance characterised by a child with upward slanted eyes like an oriental An honest to God shudder making quote.Glad I read this, it was a bit of fun seeing how people viewed the world in the 60s
