We've been overrun with child-rearing manuals for infants. We've been swamped with advice for relating to teens, But little has been offered to parents whose children are in middle childhood. John M. Drescher, a wise voice in the field of parenting literature, addresses particular delights and difficulties of this stage in a child's life. These are, observes Drescher, years of primarily happy companionship between children and parents. No longer as dependent as a preschooler and not yet as independent as a teenager, the child between the ages of 6 and 12 is a malleable being, inclinded to imitate his or her parents, looking for the safety of parental love. Drescher's book is a call to enjoy these years, but not to mistake their importance by neglecting the child who seems happy and content.
