Nanny-Gateway:
Mary Poppins just went national. Parents searching for childcare no longer need to comb the help-wanted to find the perfect nanny for their charges. Careguide.com (www.careguide.com/c.cgi/cobrand/ parenthoodweb/99/index-c.html) provides a comprehensive database whose search engine catalogues caregiving services by a variety of criteria, including: city and state, full-time or part-time care, age of the child, drop-off and pick-up time, even the child's potty-training status. Ah, well. So much for hiring her based on the size of her chest...



Required Reading:
In his landmark book, Father And Child Reunion: How to Bring the Dads We Need To The Children We Love (Jeremy P. Tarcher/Putnam), Warren Farrell, Ph.D. culls 13 years of research to explore the often loaded question: Is a child better off living with a single mom or a single dad? In prose that is sensitive yet frank, Farrell suggests that the generally accepted mother-trumps-father model often doesn't reflect reality, and that, in many circumstances, fathers actually know best. Among the sobering questions Farrell poses about the single-parent household: Are the "best interests of the child" always in a child's best interest? What do dads do differently from moms? Why are "motherly instincts" taken more seriously than those of a father, and how do government policies help to perpetuate this inequity? Food for thought.

Who's In Charge Here
By Armin Brott

Imagine this: You roll out of bed on a beautiful, sunny Sunday morning and on the spur of the moment, you decide to take the kids to the park to throw a ball around, and then maybe over to the kids' story reading at the library.

Playing Favorites

My Daughter Grows Up
By David Laskin

The breasts were disturbing but so gradual in coming that I had months to adjust – but somehow I was totally floored to discover that my thirteen-year-old daughter had pubic hair.

Thermodadnamics
By Karen Karbo

The truth, sadly, is moms don't think much of men as dads.
