Abstract
A book that aims at proving that training preschoolers with flash cards and attempting to hurry intellectual development doesn't pay off. In fact, the authors claim, kids who are pressured early on to join the academic rat race don't fair any better than children who are allowed to take their time. Alarmed by the current trend toward creating baby Einsteins, the book urges parents to step back and practice the "Three R's: Reflect, Resist, and Recenter." Instead of pushing preschoolers into academically oriented programs that focus on early achievement, the authors suggest that children learn best through simple playtime, which enhances problem solving skills, attention span, social development and creativity. The authors walk parents through much of the recent research on the way children learn, debunking such myths as the Mozart effect, and pointing out that much learning unravels naturally, programmed through centuries of evolution.

Abstract
Co-published with the Association of Women's Health, Obstetrics & Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), this comprehensive book on advanced obstetrics practice focuses on the care of childbearing women with complications during pregnancy and the related professional concerns of perinatal professionals caring for them.

All chapters have been revised by RN-MD author teams.
This edition includes the AWHONN Perinatal Morbidity Advisory Panel Top 5 Issues: obesity, thromboembolic disease, diabetes, perinatal infections, and cardiac disease. The entire first section presents the realities of today's practice including ethics, collaboration, and patient safety. Nineteen chapters detail the primary complications of pregnancy.
