Rejecting the notion of a one-size-fits-all approach to parenting, this guide uses the points of a star to provide an outline of different strategies for handling both everyday and serious child-guidance issues. The book is filled with anecdotes with which readers will identify, and it encourages parents to be creative in developing a variety of responses to children’s actions. Childcare expert Elizabeth Crary explains how different temperaments and different development levels call for different approaches to child guidance. Whether they are struggling with a power-happy toddler, expecting a second child, or raising a family of two or three or more children, parents will find invaluable advice in this book.

Elizabeth Crary, MS, is the award-winning author of more than 40 children’s and child-guidance publications. She has taught parenting education, with an emphasis on problem-solving and skill-building methods, and established Parenting Press in 1979. She lives in Seattle.
