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.

Contrary to the genre of Tiger Moms and Bébés, "No Regrets Parenting" teaches parents not how to raise kids but how to find the time to raise kids, thus turning minutes into cherished moments. This non-judgmental book frees both working and stay-at-home parents from guilt by reframing the concept of quality time.

From building trust to actively listening to creating memories to slowing down to ultimately letting go, this book covers universally relevant topics. Its short chapters, positive tone and helpful ideas make it a delight to read.

What an impact this book has left on me ... my thoughts about childhood, parenting, time-management and more! I learned so much about the type of parent I WANT TO BE. Dr. Harley's ideas are clever, cute, do-able and meaningful. A great book for any busy parent who wants to slow down and savor the moments before they're wiping the tears as their kids head off to college!
