About the Book

In this book, the author shares a few of the examples and sto­ries that have resonated with her students to help these subjects come to life for the reader. This book is not a collection of lectures or a condensed textbook, nor is it a guide to parenting or a memoir of her days as a teacher and pro­fessor. Rather, it is an attempt to inject humanity and spark into an academically complex subject. Human development through the lifespan has some­thing for everyone: we all learned a language, we all struggled to take our first step, and we all continue to deal with issues of self-esteem and attachment and growing older.
