    The Young Child and His Parents
    Book Description:

    These brief case histories deal with the everyday behavior of normal children between the ages of two and six. Each history includes a brief characterization of the salient features of the case, a description of the home situation, a discussion of developmental history, a history of the adjustments of the child, and where possible, the treatment suggestion and the later history of the case. A valuable feature of this revised edition is a follow-up of more than seventy cases after a lapse of four years.
