You'll never look at child development the same way again.
Dr. Clinton lays out the early years' journey of attachment, self-regulation, connection, resilience and well-being, and does so with scientific explanations measured out in understandable doses. This book is full of deeply researched wisdom, offered in a conversational style. It's like having a coffee and a chat with Jean as you sit at her kitchen table.
