Myths of Child Rearing
All of us want our children to grow up to be healthy, secure, friendly and successful. Unfortunately, many parents are guided by child-rearing myths that often create problems rather than solutions.
In Myths of Child Rearing, Dr. Rosner explodes the most common and most dangerous of such misconceptions and strips away these fallacies to help solve child-rearing problems.
Some of these myths are as old as the Bible, while others are modern; some are misconceptions of valid child-care concepts, while others are utterly false. What they all have in common is the damage they can do to our children. One by one, Dr. Rosner examines these myths and provides healthy, practical alternatives for parents at each stage of their child’s development.
