This A-Z guide has 546 entries, a glossary of 762 medical terms, and a major section of medical references on child health matters. It provides parents and others with guidance on what to do in every medical contingency. Coverage extends from the newborn to the adolescent. Not just a book about sick children, this book gives comprehensive coverage of all the problems - physical, psychological, behavioural and sexual - with which parents may find themselves faced in relation to their children. Much emphasis is given to the problems of bringing up children. It covers such unusual matters as AIDS, anorexia, drug abuse, family therapy and jealousy.
