Description : 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?

Description : As welfare states grow up, they begin to think more carefully about their future. Jane Lewis is showing them how best to do so. This stellar collection of articles by top European scholars combines creative thinking about the new social investment state with impressive empirical research on specific forms of public support for family work. Nancy Folbre, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, US The nature of the relationship between children, parents and the state has been central to the growth of the modern welfare state and has long been a problem for western liberal democracies. Welfare states have undergone profound restructuring over the past two decades and families also have changed, in terms of their form and the nature of the contributions that men and women make to them. More attention is being paid to children by policymakers, but often because of their importance as future citizen workers . The book explores the implications of changes to the welfare state for children in a range of countries. Children, Changing Families and Welfare States: examines the implications of social policies for children sets the discussion in the broader context of both family change and welfare state change, exploring the nature of the policy debate that has allowed the welfare of the child to come to the fore tackles policies to do with both the care and financial support of children looks at the household level and how children fare when both adult men and women must seek to combine paid and unpaid work, and what support is offered by welfare states endeavours to provide a comparative perspective on these issues. The contributors have written a book that will be warmly welcomed by scholars and researchers of social policy, social work and sociology and students at both the advanced undergraduate and post-graduate level.
