Drawing on the insights of moms across America and on the latest research, What Every Child Needs helps mothers meet their children’s nine basic needs for security, affirmation, belonging, discipline, guidance, respect, play, independence, and hope. Using a child’s language of love, Elisa Morgan and Carol Kuykendall of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) International show how moms can meet each need . . . and respect their own needs in the process. Seasoned with poignant stories and wise quotes from moms, this book will encourage mothers that the person they are is the mom their child needs.
