In Time to Parent, the bestselling organizational guru takes on the ultimate time-management challenge—parenting, from toddlers to teens—with concrete ways to structure and spend true quality time with your kids. Would you ever take a job without a job description, let alone one that requires a lifetime contract? Parents do this every day, and yet there is no instruction manual that offers achievable methods for containing and organizing the seemingly endless job of parenting. Finding a healthy balance between raising a human and being a human often feels impossible, but Julie Morgenstern shows you how to harness your own strengths and weaknesses to make the job your own. This revolutionary roadmap includes: A unique framework with eight quadrants that separates parenting responsibilities into actionable, manageable tasks—for the whole bumpy ride from cradle to college. Simple strategies to stay truly present and focused, whether you’re playing with your kids, enjoying a meal with your significant other, or getting ahead on that big proposal for work. Clever tips to make the most of in-between time—Just 5-15 minutes of your undivided attention has a huge impact on kids. Permission to take personal time without feeling guilty, and the science and case studies that show how important self-care is and how to make time for it.

The most important job you will ever have is being a parent. Parents usually raise their children the way they were parented, no matter how good or bad their experience. People laugh when they say, Babies dont come with an instruction manual. The Respectful Parent: A Manual for Moms and Dads may be the closest book to that much needed manual. This book is for parents whose normal children are driving them up the wall, and parents who want to improve their parenting skills while things are still going well. The Respectful Parent is written in a personal style by an author, who has over 55 years of clinical experience working with families and individuals of all ages. Dr. Deutch believes that respect between parent and child, along with a toolbox of great common sense techniques, is the key to having a cooperative, happy and productive family. Spanking, yelling, and threats may work on your child in the immediate situation, but scientific research shows that in the long term, they have many negative and sometimes catastrophic side effects. The Respectful Parent teaches how to use positive and democratic ways to nurture children. These ideas are based on the commonsensical philosophy of Doctors Alfred Adler and Rudolph Dreikurs. Learn to use the power of encouragement, the family council, individual special time, natural and logical consequences, and simple communication techniques. Become your childs consultant rather than boss. Raise your childs self-esteem, courage, mental health, and even his or her I.Q.

Why don’t babies come with a how to manual?” Wouldn’t it be nice to have a pediatrician there with you so you could remember what was said in those well visits and to ask simple questions to? Finally a parenting book that is organized around your baby’s well visits, isn’t written like a text book and meant to calm you down rather than scare you about all the very rare possibilities. Dr. Cliff James is a board certified Pediatrician in private practice for the last 15 years. His goal was to write a book that could both inform and entertain a new parent. With the help of his own baby, Kaden, you get a look at parenting from a pediatrician point of view as well as the mind of a baby/toddler/evil genius. This book covers: *Choosing a pediatrician *Feeding your baby *Pee, Poop, Puke and Snot *Vaccines *What happens in the hospital *Chapters for each well visit *Developmental milestones *Illnesses *Injuries This book is designed to bring a little lightheartedness to parenthood with cartoons, jokes, and plenty of Dr. James’ own disaster stories as a parent. “To often we as pediatricians and parents spend too much time emphasizing how much work it is to be a parent and lose sight of the fact children are hilarious and a great source of joy.”

Here is my first piece of advice to my daughters, which informs this entire book: Ê donÕt "lean in."Ê Ignore the advice of those who put lifestyle and prestige first and urge you to focus most of what you have to offer the world in terms of the pursuit of money.Ê As women-to-be, you have options that many men do not.Ê You have available men who will gladly fulfill their roles as provider and protector, protecting the family just as God provides for and protects us.Ê Ê

Table of Contents Parent/Child Conflicts Psychological, Time-Tested Advice for Parents Introduction Children being taught to expect too much… Bargaining Counters… What Happens When Parents Are Not Responsible This is not so important… Why Have You Done This? Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction A couple of days ago I wrote a book on things you never told your child, because psychologists told you they were not acceptable in today’s social and cultural milieu. I began to think that it was necessary for a psychologist on an Internet site, with a number of alphabets behind his name and a doctor’s label in front had to go into the ether in order to give you advice and make you believe something which was supposed to be self-evident? That is what man has been reduced to; he has absolutely no confidence in his own decision, instinct, common sense, and power to understand what is best for his child. This started in the 1960s, when Dr. Spock, a man and definitely not a mother came up with some ideas about how children had to be reared. He had some definite theories. He had some scientific ideas in his mind. He had seen how his wife brought up their children, and had adapted a whole series of chapters to how children should be fed, put to bed, entertained, and according to him what worked for his kids would work for kids globally. And the popular press believed him and so did the critics. And thus a whole continent followed his child rearing and parenting ideas for the next 50 years, until the Internet came into prominence, and a number of Dr. Spock’s successors appeared on sides to tell a parent how, when, where, why, and wherefore, a child could be reared according to their own experimental theories of 21st-century parenting.
