Emotional Life of the Toddler


Product Description

Published USA, 1993. New edition 2018
Although there are a number of books that cover the physical and cognitive ablities of the toddler, Alicia Lieberman`s book was the first to offer an in-depth examination of the varied and intense emotional life of children from ages one to three. Drawing on her lifelong research, Lieberman addresses commonly asked questions and issues. How should parents deal with the anger they sometimes feel in the face of their toddler`s unflagging obstinacy? Why does a crying toddler run to his mother for a hug only to push himself vigorously away as soon as she begins to embrace him? With the help of numerous examples, Dr. Lieberman answers these and other questions giving us, in the process, an insightful profile of the roller-coaster emotional world of the toddler.
