Child Development and Parenting

Four baby burrowing owlets pop their heads out of a prairie dog hole to see the new world.

A lot of these books are on child development or some aspect of development. Others are about behavior problems: how to understand them and how to deal with them. Most of these books I have read myself, but some I have only sampled. I list these books because I think they have good points and are based on good experience, good research, or by a well-respected person in their world of expertise. There are so many books out there that it might take years to read them all! Therefore, this list does not contain every good and helpful book out there. If you have a favorite that is not on this list, please don’t be upset or worried about that. This is just a list of some books I have found useful in my journey as a child and adolescent psychiatrist.
