Dr. Christophersen takes the commonsense approach that children are little people but still people. How well children are prepared for life and how much they will enjoy life has a lot to do with how they are raised. "Catch 'em Being Good" is one of Dr. Christophersen's favorite pieces of advice. The entire book, Little People, is built around guidelines that will help you to encourage your child's positive behavior. The book discusses the importance of touching to support a child's emotional development and self-esteem. Dr. Christophersen's advice also comforts parents by discussing what is normal and acceptable behavior. Dr. Christophersen emphasizes the importance of "time-in" with children. Only with enriched time-in, is "time-out" even possible.
