This book offers parents, grandparents, teachers and all who work with children useful ways to build EMOTIONAL MUSCLE. Your child can develop emotional muscles, like trust and adaptability for babies, empathy and agency in one-year-olds, resilience and mastery in two-year-olds, assertion and persistence in three-year-olds, internal controls and realistic standards in four-year-olds, cooperation and competence in five-year-olds and more. With these added strengths, your child will become a good friend to others, a responsible helper, a self-motivated learner, and be successful in meeting life's challenges. EMOTIONAL MUSCLE creates character.
