In clear, common-sense and no-nonsense English, child psychiatrist Calvin Colarusso M.D. explains the rationale behind toilet training and gives detailed examples of what to do and what not to do.

    Dr. Calvin Colarusso explains why adults need to play, maybe not as much as children do, but for the same reasons. Play is a way of mastering stress and trauma. It serves the same purpose for children and adults. The stresses of adulthood are, in their own way, more daunting than those of childhood. And we all have a need to master the traumatic overstimulation that characterizes our busy lives, to say nothing of the internal pressures that continually force us to deal with issues, relationships, and experiences.

    As we age, our roles as fathers change. Like all relationships, fatherhood is not a static experience, nor is it easily described, and at times the path is unclear and confusing. How do we relate to daughters and sons as they mature? As teenagers? As adults? As caretakers and heads of their own families? How does one best find joy in their accomplishments and our hand in them? And how do we come to terms with their failures, which can so often feel like our own?
