My office is littered with "parenting books...The books, as abundant as they are, aren't helping. But Dr. Rotbart's No Regrets Parenting is something special, and something a little different...Dr. Rotbart writes to help us turn painfully long minutes into funny moments, and he does it practically, in one- or two-page essays on everything from ice cream sundaes to college counseling. It's short, it's sweet, and it's more about being a parent than it is about actually parenting the kids themselves... (New York Times)
The tone and approach of Rotbart's book puts the control back in the parent's hands, by focusing on the time a parent does have with children, instead of focusing on the time that the parent doesn't have. His conversational tone helps put the parent at ease in what feels like a knowledgeable friend sharing their own insight. (ABC News)
