This acclaimed guide to children's physical, psychological and spiritual development is now available in a fourth revised edition. Combining up-to-date medical advice with issues of development and education, this is a definitive guide for parents. 

This is the book for anyone who has ever wanted a deeper understanding of their children's illnesses, or sought a more holistic approach to children's health.
