Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most mothers and fathers are surprised at how different parenthood feels when the second child arrives. Even before the birth, a host of new questions arises: can you possibly love a second child as much as the first? Is it better to have them close in age or farther apart? What about sibling rivalry?

In From One Child to Two, Judy Dunn gives parents all the information, emotional support, and reassurance they need to handle the stress — and relish the joys — of raising two children. An internationally recognized expert in the field of sibling relations, Dunn draws on her own decade-long study of siblings at home, as well as from extensive interviews and observations of parents and children.

-- How the second pregnancy differs from the first

-- How and when to break the news to the first child

-- How to manage the days surrounding the birth, the hospital visit, and the crucial first month

-- Being prepared for your firstborn's reaction to the new sibling by age group — toddlers, preschoolers, or children in early elementary school

-- How to cope with the new demands on your marriage

-- The major milestones that families face together — the changing role of fathers and grandparents, managing new schedules, and coping with parental burnout

-- Sibling rivalry: what to do about fighting, when to intervene, and when it's supposed to get better!

Whether you're contemplating a second child, expecting one any day, or trying to cope with the changing dynamics of your newly expanded family, From One Child to Two is an indispensable guide. Filled with common sense, down-to-earth, and eminently practical advice, this is the one parenting book that you will refer to again and again.
