From age 5 to 12, parenting decisions get more complicated and have lasting consequences. What's the right kind of school? Should they play a sport? When's the right time for a phone? Making these decisions is less about finding the specific answer and more about taking the right approach. Along with these bigger questions, Oster investigates how to navigate the complexity of day-to-day family logistics. The Family Firm is a smart and winning guide to how to think more clearly - and with less ambient stress - about the key decisions of these early years.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Cribsheet: * - *
She has crunched all the statistics on breastfeeding, potty training, working mothers and playgroups and discovered there is no optimal set of choices that will produce the perfect child. Most parents say they want happy, well-adjusted, robust kids and there are myriad ways to achieve those results. She's right -- Alice Thomson * The Times *
It couldn't be more relevant ... steers clear of recommendations and cast-iron guarantees, instead promising to arm parents with information to make the decisions that are right for them * Daily Telegraph *
A huge relief from the scare stories ... Cribsheet is not another call for the end of helicopter parenting or snowplow parenting or whatever kind of parenting is lighting up social media today, and it's not a call to overthrow medical wisdom; it's a call for parenting with context, and it's freeing * Washington Post *
Both refreshing and useful. With so many parenting theories driving us all a bit batty, this is the type of book that we need to help calm things down. * LA Times *
The Guilt-Free, Data-Driven Guide to Parenting ... uses science and stats to cut through the confusion of raising a family ... Smart, relatable, and funny * Bloomberg *
Praise for Emily Oster: * - *
A revelation -- Pandora Sykes
I am so grateful for her work -- Amy Schumer
