Harvard Health Publications and RosettaBooks Release TAMING YOUR CHILD'S TEMPER TANTRUMS

Any parent would be horrified if it was their child throwing a full out, screaming fit in the middle of the grocery store. Luckily, Taming Your Child's Temper Tantrums offers solutions for this all-too-common conundrum. From prevention to management, this eBook will guide parents to a more peaceful place with their child.

The Harvard Medical School Guide reminds parents that many tantrums can be stopped before they start by ensuring the child's needs for food, sleep, exercise, attention, and control are met. Also, reacting to an early tantrum might signal to the child that screams work, setting up a noisy and unpleasant cycle. Parents can set the stage for the child who is throwing the tantrum, so co-authors Victoria Rogers McEvoy, M.D., and Karen Weintraub examine telltale habits of participating adults.

Harvard Health Publications arranges the publication annually of more than a dozen full-length traditional books. This title is part of its first entry into "digital originals."

"We have a robust social media presence and thought this was the time to serve our constituencies with these short, accessible, informative eBooks," said Dr. Julie Silver, Chief Editor of Books for Harvard Health Publications.

"EBook lines from major institutions are an effective way to reach millions of people worldwide," said Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of leading independent eBook publisher RosettaBooks. "We look forward to developing this line into a leader on health topics."
