Love and Limits In and Out of Child Care

What Your Child Care Provider and Your Pediatrician Want You to Know

Love and Limits In and Out of Child Care is a roadmap for parenting happy, healthy children. Coauthored by day care provider Margaret (Peggy) Thomas, her husband, Richard, and Lisa Dobberteen, a pediatrician who entrusted her own children to Peggy's care, this is an enjoyable and educational guide to everything from TV watching to toilet training.

Drawing on the authors' expertise in their respective fields, Love and Limits offers a peek into an ideal child care situation along with advice on medical and developmental issues of real concern to parents. Conversations between Peggy Thomas and Dr. Dobberteen highlight the authors' shared view about the value of loving routines—love and limits—in raising children today. Whether their young children are in full- or part-time child care settings or at home, families will find the combination of common-sense parenting advice and medical insight just right for today's complex world.

With a healthy balance of time-proven wisdom and up-to-date medical information, the book offers parents proven strategies for deciding which day-care situation is best, along with practical tips for

establishing bedtime routines
getting along with others
negotiating the logistics of child care—sick days, payment, vacations, and more
enticing picky eaters to eat
keeping toddlers occupied during travel
selecting first aid essentials—what to keep on hand
helping children cope with problems and frustrations

Charmingly illustrated by award-winning children's book illustrator Susanna Natti, this invaluable resource will guide and reassure all parents.

Reviews

"We are deeply grateful to Peggy for the care of our two daughters. Always a source of practical advice for health and behavior problems, Peggy is a godsend!"—Cathy and Curt Vouwie, Manchester by the Sea, Massachusetts

"The best advice we can give any new mother is 'Listen to Peggy.' In eleven years (and counting) of leaving our children in her care, she has never steered us wrong. When our sons are with Peggy, they take their naps, eat vegetables, pick up their toys, and are smiling at the end of the day."—Lisa and Ron Walsworth, Newton, Massachusetts

"Peggy's down-to-earth wisdom helped us raise our children. Love and Limits brings a no-nonsense, loving grandmother and a sensitive pediatrician right into your own home!"—Marlene Booth and Avi Soifer, Honolulu, Hawaii

"While Peggy was caring for my children, she was also caring for me, teaching me about my own children, and providing support like an aunt or mother. It's wonderful that other parents can now have the benefit of Peggy's advice and support by reading this charming book!"—Julie Strong, Lexington, Massachusetts
