Description

The Normal School Child: His Problems, Physical and Emotional presents information pertinent to the common problems of the normal child of school age. This book provides an outline of common physical and behavioral disorders of children to emphasize the importance of the entire environment for every child.

Organized into 21 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the important factor in the environment after birth. This text then explains the difference between loving a child and showing him love. Other chapters consider some common behavior problems, including bed-wetting, sleep problems, poor appetite, and bowel problems and soiling. This book discusses as well difficult behaviors, including crying, jealousy, fear, and shyness. The final chapter deals with the significance of early learning and the cumulative nature of intellectual growth, which have important implications for child-rearing practice.

This book is a valuable resource for pediatricians, parents, teachers, and readers concerned with the management of children of school age.
