JEALOUSY IN CHILDREN

A realistic, practical, and if psychiatrically derived- not too explicitly psychiatric presentation of jealousy, which is never an isolated problem but which exists- whether recognized or not- in every family. Believing that permissiveness and gentleness rather than punishment will achieve security, Dr. Ziman shows the many ways in which parents either stimulate- or lessen- jealousy among children; he also indicates its many causes, and even more varied ways of manifestation. Jealousy in an only child (of a parent); in the oldest child, in the second child of two- or the third; questions of ages- and space between children; stepparents and stepchildren; twins; sex rivalry between brother and sister; these the many points of consideration in an analysis based on considerable, clinical detail. The first book length handling of an omnipresent problem- parents particularly will find this valuable.
