In her first book, Sue Jenner wrote that it is never too late to make positive progress with toddlers.
In this new, comprehensive but easy-to-follow book, she explains why it is never too early to establish that all-important emotional bond between you and your baby.
Sue shows new parents how to understand an infant's need for warmth, approval, security, and stimulation, and she describes how to translate love for your baby into a language he or she can recognise. The Parent/Baby Game uses the latest psychological theory and current research into children's neurological development.
But Sue is more than aware, as a mother, stepmother and grandmother, that what we really need to know in moments of crisis is not a series of complex formulas, but simply what to do.
So every chapter in this book gives practical solutions to all kinds of challenging situations - everything from birth fears, post-natal depression, strains on your relationship and coping with fatigue, to problems with sleeping, tantrums, crying, playing, feeding and disobedience. The Parent/Baby Game offers an endlessly useful combination of sense, sensitivity and reassurance, with a healthy touch of humour to help new parents along - just the elements needed for successful parenting in this most crucial phase of your child's life.
