As a child moves beyond the toddler years, new challenges arise for parents. Be prepared for this exciting stage with fifteen "Childwise" principles for training children ages 3-7 in happy and responsible living.  You became a parent overnight..... but it takes much longer to become Childwise.  Just when you master the baby stage, greater challenges arise.  Intellect, self-awareness, curiosity, and social roles are emerging-- requiring consistent caring guidance from you.

Equip yourself with more than fifteen Childwise Principles for training kids in the art of living happily among friends and family.  Foster the safe, secure growth of your child's self-concept and world view.  Nurture your little one's uniqueness while setting loving boundaries on his or her world.  And sow seeds for a rich harvest in the ten years ahead.

On Becoming Childwise shows you how to raise emotionally balanced, intellectually assertive, and morally sensible children.  It's the essential guidebook for the adventurous years from toddler to grader schooler!  Come join 26 year Pediatrician Dr. Robert Bucknam, M.D. and co-author Gary Ezzo, M.A. and the community of 6 million homes in all 50 states and around the world that are finding peace and success with their children in the On Becoming bestselling series!


This is an exciting period of growth and development for children, and a time when parental training and encouragement are major players in the child's developing world.  These preschool and early school years awaken within a child a sense of fearful adventure in an ever-expanding world outside the confines of mom and dad.

It is an exciting and, yes, challenging growth period.  A time when your child's intellect develops sufficiently to allow purposeful interaction with adults and other children.  As that interaction begins, your child starts to process experiences and sensation from his deepening relationships that direct the way he interprets life.  As your child's world unfolds, new and broader expectations are realized.  Now he is confronted with role functions, norms, and expected standards of conduct which sometimes conflict with each other as well as with his own self-centered perceptions.

Children of this age not only begin to perceive how and where they fin into the larger social picture, but they also develop a life and worldview perception of where everyone else in their mental neighborhood belongs-- mom and add, little Kyle next door, and the mechanic down the street.

Our goal is to help you get started and sustain your course of action with confidence.  We want to give you a renewed sense of purpose in your parentings.  Come enjoy our 15 Childwise principles!
