About the Author

Benjamin Spock, M.D. practiced pediatrics in New York City from 1933 to 1947. He then became a medical teacher and researcher at the Mayo Clinic, the University of Pittsburgh, and Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. The author of eleven books, he was a political activist for causes that vitally affect children: disarmament, day care, schooling, housing, and medical care for all. He had two sons, a stepdaughter, and four grandchildren. Dr. Spock, who died March 15, 1998, at age ninety-four, was married to Mary Morgan. Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care has been translated into thirty-nine languages and has sold fifty million copies worldwide since its first publication in 1946.

Old-fashioned but still good advice 4 Sept. 2003
By Pamela - Published on
Format: Paperback
Perhaps it's not stylish nowadays to admit that Dr. Spock is OK, but he really is. I love this book. It's packed with sensible advice.
To me, the most helpful section is the called _Teaching Sexual Equality_. It contains good commentary about raising children of each gender, making sure everybody (even Dad) does an equal share around the house, helping children develop healthy gender attitudes, and more.
I recommend this book for parents. It's enjoyable reading, not too academic or judgmental, and offers personal observations about child-raising, which the author shares with remarkable personal insight.

I found parents thougts 19 July 2006
By Filippova-Miller - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read the book for my oldest daugther - 28 years before and really liked it. I have an edition in Russin and consult with it when neccessary.

Now I choose the book for my husband, as he is a step father.

I by myself read a lot from this edition and it gave me some ideas and support in my undestanding.

I like that there is refences for other books which relate to the subject if you would like to know more.

GREAT BOOK!! 30 Oct. 2006
By Robert K. Orsucci - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have a 5 year old and a 2 year old and i tell you this book has really guided me. They are wonderful girls and I love how Dr. Spock talks about respecting your child.. in turn it is amazing how you gain their respect. It is a book i have highly recommended to several very good friends who have had issues with their children and tell me how much it has helped them. :)

HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended.
