How does a parent make the most of the fleeting moments and long days of parenting from birth through adulthood? Dr. Harley A. Rotbart tackles this one of the most demanding and constant challenges of parenting in his new book No Regrets Parenting. Rotbart’s book is all about how to spend and find enough time with your kids. This is a book that has key advice for the working and stay-at-home parent as well as for parents of babies and high school graduates. This would make a wonderful baby shower gift as it gives parents a point of view from which to consider their precious limited time with their children. This is a great and standout addition to the wide collection of books written recently on mindful parenting. The discussion includes how to start family traditions, how to make the moments together (when the kids aren’t at school and you aren’t at work) valuable, and what wisdom to impart to your young adults before they head off into the world to college and beyond. No Regrets Parenting really will help all parents have little to no regrets about their own parenting adventures.
