    Glad to see you’re mentioning Helen Neville’s talks! She’s one of our favorite Parenting Press authors. Her “Is This a Phase? Child Development & Parent Strategies, Birth to 6 Years” walks us from infancy to kindergarten, explaining what’s normal and when we should worry. (As if we don’t worry MOST of the time!) Another helpful publication from Parenting Press: News for Parents, our complimentary AND advertising-free monthly, available at http://www.parentingpress.com/ezine.html. Right now, full of tips on getting kids ready for school. Especially helpful if you have a prospective kindergartner.
