Dr. Sharon Hall highlights seven key areas of child development in creating this reader–friendly guide to raising psychologically healthy children. Much is known in the academic sphere about the socialization of healthy children, yet these ideas are rarely made readily accessible to a broader audience. This book paints an overall picture of the skills children need to become healthy adults. It offers research on the connections between cognitive development and social competency and emphasizes the impact of strong relationships and personal responsibility on positive outcomes for children. A child s temperament and ability to self–regulate responses, as well as the gender differences in psychological health are examined. Dr. Hall also explores risk and protective factors that contribute to resilience in children.

This easy– to–read volume is based on sound psychological science, making it ideal for parents, teachers, students, or clinicians working with families.
