For every type of family, this updated and expanded edition is the quintessential, open-to-all parenting guidebook, guaranteed to help you find more—and better—time for your kids and yourself.
It's not just how much time you have with your kids, but how you spend that time that matters in the life and legacy of a family. No Regrets Parenting focuses on the simple truth that the long days of busy parenting race quickly by and, looking back someday, the years with kids will feel far too short. Written by renowned pediatrician, celebrated author, and distinguished parenting expert, Dr. Harley Rotbart, No Regrets Parenting, Updated and Expanded Edition helps parents readjust their perspectives and priorities. Dr. Rotbart teaches parents how to experience the joy and depth of the parenting experience amidst the chaos and choreography of daily routines. Carpool, bedtime, bath time, soccer practice, homework, dinner hour, and sleepovers all become more than just obligations and hurdles to overcome. They become opportunities for intimate and meaningful time with kids— opportunities to turn fleeting minutes into memorable moments.

Your kids need to see who you are and how you live your life. And, in return, they will help you to see who you really are and how you should be living your life. For all of that to happen, families need memorable and meaningful time together. No Regrets Parenting is about time—finding enough of it and making the most of it.

Accompanying this timeless advice, Dr. Rotbart has added timely, updated content to address the ever-changing needs of today’s busy families. Also in this edition are two brand new sections: "Parenting Young Adult Children" (because parenting doesn’t end with high school graduation) and "No Regrets Grandparenting" for those magical years when your children become parents! Oh my! This updated and expanded edition answers the ageless question: How can you do it all…and stay sane in the process?
For every type of family, this updated and expanded edition is the quintessential, open-to-all parenting guidebook, guaranteed to help you find more—and better—time for your kids and yourself.

This was a good listen. The narrator was clear and intoned well. The book was interesting and gave some practical advice for engaging with your kids and grandkids. Most of the time rationale was offered for why doing (or not doing) something is beneficial. Many of the suggestions seemed obvious to me. As a homeschool mama I have always tried to be intentional with my interactions with my kids. I actually found parts 2 and 3, about parenting adult kids and grandparenting, to be the most interesting and beneficial (for better understanding my relationship to my parents).

Loved this book. Being a parent it's not easy, trying to be a good parent it's even more overwhelming as you try to get your hands on different tools that will help you many times are parents even reading books hoping to find there a Holly grail of parenting wisdom. What I liked about this book is simplicity, simple truts that are unfolded in short chapters, little ideas,common practices sprinkled with bits of humour, personal exemples. It's straightforward, and easy to digest and gives you lots of homework in relation to your children,parents and even grand parents This audiobook was also great because of the narrator,a really pleasant voice to listen, and maybe this also added to the fact that I liked this book. Thank you to the publisher for the chance to have this book in exchange for a review.
