“Carol Kanter takes you beyond Drs. Spock and Brazelton. They tell you how to bring up the baby. She shows you how to take care of yourself, too. Interesting, provocative, and very stimulating. Kanter has written a most unusual book on merging couple’s parenting responses and their reactions to their new child.” —Sherman Feinstein, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry University of Chicago
“A refreshing book on the ups and downs, ins and outs of parenting. A tapestry of marriage-relationship care interwoven with easily understood developmental theory. Highly recommended for first-time parents.” —Parnela Shrock, Childbirth Educator and Counselor, Chicago
“The only baby book that made me laugh. friendly and conversational, its precise guidelines and refreshingly personal accounts helped me overcome the guilt of not being a perfect parent…and helped me relax and enjoy my new role!” —Patricia Higgins Greenberg, New Parent (10 months), New Orleans
