Dr. Winnicott explores the basic relationships of childhood starting with the bond of love between mother and infant, which he views as the key to personality. Speaking directly and informally, he explains everyday issues such as feeding, crying, playing, independence, and shyness as well as serious problems such as stealing and lying.Throughout each discussion, Dr. Winnicott emphasizes the inborn abilities of parents and carefully distinguishes these from the skill that must be learned. Fascinating chapters on the roots of aggression, on the fear of dependence and its unfortunate consequences in adulthood, and on the innate morality of the baby reveal Dr. Winnicotts characteristic wit and insight.

Few experts have done more to present the world of children and parents to the general public than D.W. Winnicott. In this classic of child development, Winnicott explores problems of the only child, of stealing and lying, shyness, sex education in schools and the roots of aggression. 'His style is lucid, his manner friendly, and his years of experience provide much wise insight into child behaviour and parental attitudes' - British Journal of PsychologyAbout the Author:
D.W. Winnicott (1896-1971) was the first paediatrician in Britain to train as a psychoanalyst. In over forty years of clinical practice at the Paddington Green Children's Hospital, he brought unprecedented skill to the relatively new discipline of the psychoanalysis of children. His work is increasingly being regarded as one of the most influential contributions to psychoanalysis since Freud.
