Summary "Parenting Made Complicated: A One Size Does Not Fit All Look at What Science Really Knows about Early Parenting's Biggest Dilemmas addresses many of the longstanding parenting controversies that new mothers and fathers face. These include topics related to screens, daycare, praise, sleep training, spanking and time-outs. helicopter versus "old school" parenting, and others. Each chapter is devoted to a different parenting controversy and, a synthesis of what is known scientifically about each topic is presented, written in a non-technical and conversational style. Parenting Made Complicated, however, doesn't assume that the "correct" answer for each parenting dilemma is the same for each child and instead provides a roadmap for how the best approach may vary according to a child's temperament or other important factors. Many case vignettes and boxed practical suggestions are provided. Accounts are also given regarding how scientific information on a particular topic is applied and sometimes manipulated toward political aims. The book is written by child psychiatrist Dr. David Rettew, an expert in child temperament who has conducted research in child development and worked clinically with families for over 20 years"-- Provided by publisher
