The review on the back cover of the book states:
“Children don’t come with an instruction manual, but this parenting book is about as close as
you can get. Written by a group of wise early-childhood development experts, it’s an easy-to-
read behavioral guide to what’s going on in your young child’s mind in almost any situation –
from public tantrums to noticing people with disabilities to preparing for the first day of
preschool. Whether you read it cover to cover or reach for it when the going gets tough, it will
help bring out that loving, nurturing, patient and resourceful parent that lives in all of us.”

“Helping Young Children Grow is a comprehensive course in child development, written in non-technical terms and suitable for students, parents, educators, medical students, and mental health professionals- and anyone who works with children and parents. It is a clear and practical guide to understanding children, child development and personality development, written from a psychodynamic perspective by a renowned child psychoanalyst. The book uses a three part format: 1) Relationships in Early Childhood, 2) Learning Self-Control and Coping with Daily Tasks, and 3) Using Inner Resources to Enrich Life, and includes a chapter on Bereavement in childhood. The author, Erna Furman, was associated with the Hanna Perkins Center, the Cleveland Center for Research in Child Development and the Hanna Perkins School, and this course in child development was developed as a project of the Center. The research group collaborated to create this high school course, which was first used and taught in the Shaker Heights, Ohio, school system and in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, and has been and is being currently used as a "teach the teacher course." The book takes a conversational tone and uses a Socratic approach, and is accessible to both lay and professional readers.”
