Show synopsis Touchstones are the major milestones as your child grows. They are those predictable spurts of development which are often associated with difficult periods of regression and which can cause parents a mixture of excitement and worry. This book uses these "touchstones" as windows to help parents understand their child's behaviour and to prevent problems in the first six years of their child's life. This book addresses parents' questions about their child's behaviour, feelings and development, and treats them in both chronological and reference form. In part one, the book takes readers from pregnancy through to the first three years of a child's life, explaining the characteristic achievements and calming inevitable worries at each stage. Part two covers the first six years of life with the final part explaining the vital role of the most important people in a child's life.
