In practical, concrete detail, Dr. Hallowell presents the basic ingredients for the kind of childhood that will most likely lead to a happy and satisfying adulthood.

In addition, Dr. Hallowell made two videotapes for PBS, one about managing worry, the other about the power of connection, which were shown around the country in 1999.
