You don't buy a car just so you can change the oil! And you don't have a baby just to feed it and change his or her diapers. Yet most childcare books treat childhood like a series of problems and miss the heart of the matter--the loving communication and interaction that help your child become a unique individual who loves life. This book is about the fun and heart of parenthood, including: deciding when to have a baby, helping your relationship to stay strong, the special role of fathers, finding a pattern and routine that work for you and your baby, baby massage, "the tigress mother"--protecting your kids, how to chat with babies to stimulate brain growth, teaching good behavior without using fear or physical punishment, making bath times, car times, and shopping times easy and fun, teaching your child about feelings, when your own childhood wasn't so good, what if you're a single parent, and preparing for school.
