Due to the high level of brain plasticity between the ages of 3 and 5, the authors stress the importance of early childhood education. Children who are home with a parent should be actively homeschooled, ideally with siblings or in a co-op with other families. Children who are cared for outside the home ought to be in a program that provides lots of play and a low student-teacher ratio.

Children who misbehave may have sensory processing issues. These students can benefit from a sensory corner fur
skimmed. Couldn't decide how I felt about the need for peer orientation such as the book suggests, so I gave up. Found some good advice in there about conversing with kids and helping them engage, and, as usual, thought it would be difficult to remember how to do some of the tips in real life, but made a note that I'd try harder to think of ways to open conversations and ideas with my preschooler. Some of the conversations sounded clinical, but successful, and helpful.

I'm not quite sure how to rate this book. It's written by two experts who obviously know what they're talking about, it has some valuable, practical advice about how to improve your toddler/preschooler's social skills, and it's fairly well written. But I found it terribly, terribly dull and could hardly finish it. Maybe I've just read too many books on the subject lately? Grade: C.
This is one of the few parenting books I was able to read cover to cover. I agreed with the philosophy of the book and found it easy and interesting to read. It was not overly repetitive like many parenting books tend to be. I just wish I had bought it in book form rather than kindle, so it would be easier to look back on.

Meh. Stuff I already knew. The best advice I gleaned is to break away from the questions and integrate yourself into your child's imaginative play; this serves to validate the activity and encourage creative thought. Other than that, kind of a snoozer.
Was given this book as a gift from someone who works for the publisher.
