While parents prepare for the birth of their children with trips to the doctor and birthing classes, parenthood itself requires on the job training. Here, Johnson invites parents to explore their own childhood experiences and memories in order to better understand the parenting challenges they face daily, and to accept that children raise parents as much as parents raise children. With tips, stories, and exercises, she guides parents through the various developmental stages of their children, and illustrates how we can make each moment count, one interaction at a time.
