There's little doubt that parenting can be one of the most rewarding and satisfying experiences you'll ever have. But it can be plenty tough, too: Around the clock, you're working to keep your little one healthy, teach her the difference between right and wrong, and make sure none of her little fingers find their way to the electrical outlets, the dog's nose, or grandpop's cup of coffee. In "YOU: Raising Your Child, "Drs. Mehmet Oz and Michael Roizen, the "New York Times "#1 bestselling authors of the YOU health series, help you navigate the often tricky journey of parenting with the ultimate guide to raising a happy, healthy child.
Dr. Mehmet Oz--host of television's "The Dr. Oz Show"--and Dr. Michael Roizen--chief wellness officer and chair of the Wellness Institute of the Cleveland Clinic--have sold millions of books informing readers about healthy dieting, aging, and overall health. Picking up where their prior book, "YOU: Having a Baby, "left off, the docs provide oh-wow information and insider advice to help parents understand the biology and psychology of raising a child from birth to school age.
With humor and cutting-edge biological insights, the authors address everything from troubleshooting infant health issues to creating an environment that supports the emotional and intellectual development of your growing child. They talk about the various approaches to parenting--are you a Marshmallow Mommy or an Iron Maiden, passive or hyperinvolved? The docs help you identify your style of parenting, encouraging passive parents to create clear boundaries and hypervigilant ones to step back more often and let their kids develop. You will learn to become the ideal parent: firm but flexible. The docs also provide an extensive overview of nuts-and-bolts health problems-- from asthma to fevers to emergency room visits and the sensitive issue of vaccinations.
In "YOU: Raising Your Child, "America's most trusted doctors, who co-host a daily Sirius/XM radio program for Oprah Radio, once again come to the rescue with wisdom about how to provide an enriching environment with the ultimate goal of raising a child with a healthy body--and mind. As the docs say in their introduction: "Our goal is to teach you how to create the optimal environment for your child--an environment that's most conducive to your child thriving in all areas of life, physically, emotionally, socially, and developmentally. Why? Because the latest research shows us that the environment--as defined not only by physical space but also by the behaviors of parents and caregivers--is the number-one determinant of your child's future."

"YOU: Raising Your Child "offers a brand-new way to think about parenting. Imagine child development--and your child's journey though life--as a ride down a long, often unpredictable river. You are the guide, there to control the direction and speed that you travel. For the fi rst few years of their lives, your children are your precious cargo--the passengers who take in everything they see and who learn from you how to paddle on their own. As the guide, you can control the path you take and the environments you choose to travel in--with the goal of creating a healthy and happy life for your child. Here's just a sample of what you'll learn:
- The mind relies on the environment to give clues and signals about how it's supposed to develop and what it's supposed to learn. Dr. Roizen and Dr. Oz show you how to create the best learning landscape possible to help your child thrive.
- Breast milk provides the perfect concoction of nutrients to help protect your baby against infection, asthma, and many other conditions (it also burns 500 calories a day to help you lose that baby weight ). But if you aren't able to breastfeed, we have plenty of tips on exactly what and how much to feed your baby to make sure that he or she is getting the best possible diet from day one.
