Long forgotten book

When my children were young, I often referred to the original printing of this book. Now with grandchildren, I have given a copy to my daughter. In reading through it, she has become more relaxed because she is experiencing stages and changes in her children that, according to the book, are very normal for each age. I am now going to order another one for myself!


Great book! A friend recommended this book to us a 2 years ago - our son is now 7 and I wish we had known about it 5 years ago. I haven't read it cover to cover, but it's a great reference guide for all the different stages kids experience. Our son is a joy, but like all children he has his "moments" and it's such a relief to refer to this book and find out he's perfectly normal!

Excellent reference book for parents. Has all the answers.

With four children and seven grandchildren, Gesell Institute's CHILD BEHAVIOR has become our constant reference guide. The book's "Ages and Stages" section was one we always anxiously referred to when one of our children was doing something unusual. It was reassuring to us to find out they were each very normal for their age. In fact, it almost seemed like the particular section had been written after observing what our kids were doing at that specific stage in their development. Today it is not unusual for one of our children to call us with a question they have about their kids. Even though our original copy is over 35 years old, the examples and descriptions still fit. Many things may have changed over the years, but children seem to develop and react similarly to specific situations. Just take one look at our tattered copy and you will see that this has been a well-used reference book in our home and we recommend it to any parent or grandparent.

this book was recommended by my best friend

this book has been 100% on the mark foretelling stages in my niece's development. she is 4 years old now and the book has been her parents best guide. a much better book than the "what to expect" series.

A "MUST"- to know what makes your children tick and why

I bought "Child Behavior" in 1990. I read about it from a magazine. "Child Behavior" gives advice on problems of child behavior, from age 4 weeks to ten years. This book has helped me stay ahead of every stage my children would soon enter. I would read about a stage not believing it would happen, the WHAM! there they go! When I heard my first "I HATE YOU!" I didn't have a breakdown feeling like I was the worst parent in the world. Instead, I cracked up laughing to myself because I had read about this stage and couldn't imagine my children actually saying this! "Child Behavior" has kept me ahead of every stage and makes me feel like a great parent because I am prepared. My children appreciate this, because then I don't freak out thinking no other children act this way! People see me react to these stages thinking I have a lot of patience. I explain to them, I am just prepared from reading "Child Behavior."
