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.
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.
