Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


Sharon Meers and Joanna Strober are professionals, wives, and mothers. They understand the challenges and rewards of two-career households. They also know that families thrive not in spite of working mothers but because of them. You can have a great career, a great marriage, and be a great mother. The key is tapping into your best resource and most powerful ally--the man you married.
After interviewing hundreds of parents and employers, surveying more than a thousand working mothers, and combing through the latest government and social science research, the authors have discovered that kids, husbands, and wives all reap huge benefits when couples commit to share equally as breadwinners and caregivers. Mothers work without guilt, fathers bond with their kids, and children blossom with the attention of two involved parents.
From "baby boot camp" for new dads to exactly what to say when negotiating a leave with the boss, this savvy book offers fresh ideas to today's families offering encouragement, hope, and confidence to any woman who has ever questioned her choices regarding work and family.
