Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

From the editors of the UCLA Working Parents Newsletter comes this comprehensive manual for making it all work: career, kids and time for yourself. Starting with being the topic of pregnant in the work place, it includes issues many first-time parents have not considered, like sending your nanny to CPR class and making lunches your kids won't hate. With concrete suggestions from other parents, you'll find more information than you ever knew you needed.

From Booklist

Articles from the UCLA Working Parents Newsletter, revised, updated, and, in some cases, expanded, form the core of a thoughtful, realistic, detailed guide for parents who balance work and child rearing. Organized chronologically, the text opens with issues that arise during pregnancy, such as planning for leaves, and proceeds to concerns that gain importance as the child grows. Sale and colleagues offer a wealth of practical advice for coping with common events and daily routines--taking work home, grocery shopping and other chores, toilet training, food quirks, birthday parties, school holidays, car safety, problem friends, etc. Warm and informative without being patronizing or judgmental, the book, with its knowing, no-nonsense style, should appeal to its intended audience of parents equally serious about their work and their parental responsibilities. Kathryn Carpenter

Format: Paperback
Since 1989 the authors of the UCLA Working Parents Newsletter have offered practical advice, solutions and ideas to working parents. The book expands their work and adds personal vignettes from real parents. Emotional issues are discussed, including separation anxiety -- both the child's and the parents' -- in such a way that you realize there are no simple solutions and many parents feel the same way you do. All working parents can benefit from the years of research and parental wisdom that have gone into this book

By A Customer on May 20, 1999
Format: Paperback
This book has great information about all aspects of being a working mother, from when to tell the boss you're pregnant to how to deal with "latch-key kids". Covers all of the most important elements in a sympathetic, realistic manner. Very highly recommended for everyone who is a working mother or thinking about becoming one.
