Understanding Your One-year-old

How does the world look to a one-year-old? When your child doesn't have words to explain things to you, how can you begin to understand how she feels? How do you support and understand your very young child as his independence increases and he starts to become a toddler, beginning to learn to dress himself, share toys and play with other children? Acknowledging the crucial role of relationships and parenting, Sarah Gustavus Jones offers guidance and reassurance in this sensitive exploration of the issues central to your child's developing physical and emotional needs.

About the Author

Sarah Gustavus Jones is consultant child and adolescent psychotherapist at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London and visiting lecturer and seminar leader at the Tavistock Clinic. She has a background in counselling adolescents in school and is currently researching focused short-term counselling for under fives with their parents. She is the mother of two young children.


They are a rich resource of balanced, sensitive and non-judgemental advice to help parents and professionals looking after children. The central subject is the mental and emotional development of children and their parents. And the style is intelligent and friendly, each book is divided into very easily digestible sections, with excellent (and often very funny) case studies scattered liberally throughout and a really detailed contents page for those "where did I see that bit about"moments... The books form a cohesive and continuous guide to almost everything I have ever wondered about bringing up my children. I learnt a lot. And a friend, mother of her first two-year-old, could not wait to get her hands on these when I described them. They are now going into our bathroom "reference library" for family and visitors to peruse and digest. -- 0-19 Magazine
