Geared toward young and first-time parents, Taking Care of Me explains that parenting style and skill are influenced by temperament, childhood experiences, basic needs, knowledge, and family goals. It suggests the many ways parents can make and sustain positive changes in caring for themselves so they can better care for their children. This profusely illustrated book argues that by taking care of themselves well, parents can take even better care of their children.
