Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Typically, when a woman gets pregnant, she considers whether to give up or cut back on her career, or surrender her child to daycare or a nanny. Now families have other alternatives. Fathers can stay home, work flexibly, go part-time, or help out so stay-at-home-mothers enjoy personal fulfillment too. Prepared women can choose the lives they want by following the common sense prescriptions in How to Avoid the Mommy Trap. Julie Shields interviewed marital counselors, childcare workers, negotiation experts, employers, child development experts, and parents to find out how to create a family balance. How to Avoid the Mommy Trap emphasizes real-life solutions and strategies, and highlights common missteps. Weaving research and anecdote together, Julie Shields demonstrates the value and efficacy of a new parenting paradigm - sharing. This sensible primer is for every parent thinking about having children but wondering if and how to balance work, parenthood, and life.Author EventsAugust 15, 2003 - WCUB Breakfast Club, 10 a.m.August 26, 2003 - WFHR Radio, 10 a.m.August 27, 2003 - WBKC, 8:30a.m.August 29, 2003 - KLPW Radio, 12:10 p.m.September 12, 2003 into September 13, 2003 - WBZ Radio, 1 a.m. September 13, 2003 - WFAS Here's to Your Good Health, 11 a.m. September 27, 2003 - KTKK Interviews & Interactions with Linda Strasberg, 5:30 p.m.October 29, 2003 - Speaking Engagement at the 92nd Street Y in New York CityNovember 1, 2003 - WFHG 92.7 FM / WXBQ The Barbara McFaddin Show, 10am
