We're expecting, and our MIL gifted us this book so that we could see what sort of parenting advice she'd been reading when she raised my husband and his sister.

It was interesting, but I wouldn't recommend it today. Much of the book is science-dependent (which is great), but science in parenting has moved along quite a bit since these essays were originally published.

When I first bought this book on my Kindle, I wasn't overly thrilled. I thought I had bought this book because it was similar to Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care. However, if you want to learn a little about your child's physical and emotional needs, be my guest and buy the book. But, I didn't pick it up after I read the introduction and part of the first chapter.

Benjamin McLane Spock was an American pediatrician whose book Baby and Child Care, published in 1946, is one of the biggest best-sellers of all time. Its revolutionary message to mothers was that "you know more than you think you do." Spock was the first pediatrician to study psychoanalysis to try to understand children's needs and family dynamics.
