Tears and Tantrums is a revolutionary book describing the function of crying and raging during infancy and childhood (birth to eight years of age). It has been translated into Dutch, French, and German. This book will help you improve your relationship with children, whether you are a parent or a professional. You will gain a better understanding of why babies and children cry, and you will learn how best to respond. The author explains that crying often serves as a vitally important stress-release mechanism, and she recommends responding with compassionate listening and acceptance.

Benefits of this approach include:
-- helping babies sleep better (without ignoring them)
-- helping children heal from stress and trauma
-- increasing children's attention span and intelligence
-- improving children's self-esteem and emotional health
-- reducing children's violent behavior & hyperactivity
-- strengthening the parent/child bond
