Many young children are not naturally confident and engaged with their friends. However, the latest research shows that children can be taught—at a very early age—the skills they need to be socially and academically successful. Authors Ann Densmore, EdD, a prominent speech and language pathologist and child therapist, and Margaret Bauman, MD, a world-renowned pediatric neurologist, have identified ten essential skills preschoolers must master in order to lead a lifetime of success. Praise for Your Successful Preschooler "In my estimation, this book is another classic. I have never read anything that is so detailed and spot-on about how to connect with a child who lacks the basic tools of connecting. The stories allow the reader to . . . help children with friendships, with moral behavior, empathy, and peer connections. It is a very important book." —Edward M. Hallowell, MD, best-selling author of The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness "In our culture, with its growing emphasis on academic achievement, this book refocuses our attention not only on the importance of play and social interaction in the preschool years but also on the importance of parent and teacher involvement. The book is packed with accessible strategies . . . to facilitate children's development through direct participation in their play." —Karen Levine, PhD, psychologist and instructor, Harvard Medical School
