More About the Author

As a social psychologist, for decades I have focused on relationship and family issues from enriching parent-child and family connections to reaching a sensible balance between work and family, from preventing child abduction and alcohol abuse to getting along better with your parents when you are all adults, and more. The material for my articles and books comes from extensive interviewing and evaluation often combined with the studies and findings of other psychologists, psychiatrists, and related experts. My goal is to provide readers the most accurate, objective, and useful insights available on the topic.

I believe conflicts and disturbing problems can be eased, if not solved, and most relationships improved when people are willing to make the effort. My books are created and designed to give you the information and tools to help you succeed in making a better, happier life for yourself, your children, your parents, partner, friends, and work colleagues.

Those considering or raising an only child will find interesting discussions at my Psychology Today magazine blog: Singletons

I think there should be some sort of qualification on this book that it is geared for parents who both work full time outside the home and spend most of their day away from their children. The book is written to help these "busy parents" [what parent isn't busy?! LOL!] fit "quality time" in for their children - and it is broken down into 5 minute or less things to do, half hour things, weekend things etc.

I think this book would be really helpful to parents who didn't have much time to spend with their children. But, for a stay at home parent or a homeschooling parent, it is essentially useless in my opinion.

Most of the things that would be appropriate for a full time parent are things that a stay at home parent is probably already doing [common sense stuff]. The rest is not geared for those who stay home with their children. [for example, the tip to "write a letter to your child's teacher on the first day of school and let them know you want to be involved even though you are a working parent".]

So, personally, as a stay at home mother, I was dissappointed. I feel like I spent money on a book full of stuff that either doesn't apply to our situation or is stuff that I already DO intuitively with my children.

I've used this book for years. It gives me new ideas to try with my kids...and they work. The chapters are divided into time-frames of a minute or two, half an hour, over the weekend and so forth, so I pick one to meet the time I have. No book like it comes close in helping me show my children I love them.

Thanks....to Susan Newman!

I had a wonderful time reading through this book and remembering the things my parents did for me. Now I almost always give this book to new parents. In this busy day and age it's easy to forget that the most simple tradition can mean a great deal.

This book is organized in time slots. Do you have 5 minutes -- here are ways you can make your child feel special. 30 minutes? Here are some different ways. And so forth. Some ideas you will probably have already come up with on your own -- or read elsewhere -- but many were innovative.
