As always, Elizabeth takes a sympathetic approach, advocating a gentle method with the child's welfare and parent-child relationship always at the fore. The book contains many practical approaches to dealing with separation anxiety as well as explaining why it happens. I like that she allows for differences in your own family situation in that you can pick and choose which ideas to use and try different methods for a period of time to discover which works best for your own situation.
I find that her writing allows you to understand situations and emotions from your child's viewpoint - something which as busy parents we can often be to busy to notice - which when dealing with problems allows us to take a step back and see why our child might be behaving in such a way and then she offers us practical solutions.
If you have issues with separation anxiety I highly recommend this book; my son is just 2 years old but the advice in here ranges for children from 6 months to 6 years so I am sure I will find it invaluable over the next few years.
Having read Elizabeth's The No-Cry Sleep Solution and The No-Cry Nap Solution, I was already a huge fan of her nurturing techniques, and so was excited to get my copy of her latest book 'The No-Cry Separation Anxiety Solution'.
The book gives plenty of information about why children get anxious, which helps you understand why separation anxiety happens, and helps you to see things from the child's perspective. It also gives parents a whole host of tools to try, not a one-solution-fits-all approach like some parenting books do.
Although my Daughter and I are not currently experiencing any major separation anxiety issues, I have loaned my copy out to two friends, and both have said they found the book invaluable, and both found techniques that worked for their children (one 14 months, one 12 months).
It's a great book to have in your parenting tool-belt, and I would highly recommend it to any parent.
This book is utter nonsense: the author has filled 200-odd pages with repetitious platitudes and basically useless advice. Most of what she says is common sense: reassure your child, separation anxiety is normal, etc, etc. Don't we all know that?
Pantley's earth-shattering theory is based around the idea that you should play peek-a-boo with your child (to show that you always come back!) and maybe give nursery a break if it's not working out. And if you give them a bracelet to wear, then everything will be OK. A free bracelet is included with this book and it's a cheap, nasty piece of polyester that my eczema-prone child could never wear.
Not worth a fraction of the cover price - Emperor's new clothes. Most of this stuff parents already know; the rest you can get from chatting to teachers or other mothers. AVOID.
