Compassionate and balanced, and focusing on the emotional health and well-being of children as well as that of the mothers who care for them, this book shows mothers and fathers how to give their children the best chance for developing into healthy and loving adults. Based on more than two decades of clinical work, established psychoanalytic theory, and the most current and cutting-edge neurobiological research on caregiving, attachment, and brain development, the book explains:
How to establish emotional connection with a newborn or young child - regardless of whether you're able to pause your career to stay home
How to select and train quality childcare if necessary - and how to ease transitions and minimize stress for your baby or toddler
What's true and false about widely held beliefs like "babies are resilient" and how to combat feelings of post-partum depression or boredom
Why three months of maternity leave is not long enough - and how women and their partners can take control of their choices to provide for their family's emotional needs in the first three years
