Age Books #08: Your Eight-Year-Old

The eight-year-old child is an exuberant, outgoing bundle of energy, meeting every challenge head on, and willing to try almost anything.  Parents are sometimes amazed by the enthusiasm and excitement with which this child greets the world.  However, eight also analyzes, evaluates and finds fault in himself/herself and others.  The authors address behavior problems in school, quarreling with parents, aggressiveness, sensitivity to criticism, and much more during this up and down age.
