Summary

This rewarding guide helps men and women understand the different perspectives each brings to parenting, resolve conflicts more effectively, and discover the joys of raising kids together as a team. Dr. Ron Taffel brings his rare blend of astute insight and common sense to illuminate the gender issues that underlie typical parental battles. Engaging examples and vignettes bring to life the recurring conflicts that many Moms and Dads experience around making rules and setting limits; managing mealtimes and bedtimes; spending quality time with kids; providing emotional support and nurturance; and handling the juggling act of school, playdates, and extracurricular activities. Parents learn proven ways to redistribute responsibilities more equally; avoid undermining each other's authority; and grow closer and more accepting both as parents and partners.
