From Publishers Weekly:

Ehrensaftwife and mother, practicing psychologist and professor of psychology at UC Berkeleyreports on her own and her patients' experiences sharing childcare equally between husband and wife. The study emphasizes the differences between what parents anticipate and the complex realities of family life. One mother admits jealousy because her spouse favors the children over her; some husbands feel their wives neglect them by over-mothering their offspring. A particularly interesting chapter details effects of modern child-rearing, relating several instances where little children unselfconsciously adopt behavior once taboo for their genderboys cuddling dolls, for example. Readers come to admire these families who struggle against cultural influences in the hope that their "sons and daughters . . . will achieve a better balance of being than their parents."

From Library Journal:

More and more parents are choosing to share fully the parenting of their children, and not just from economic necessity. Shared parenting usually means greater involvement by the father in what traditionally was the mother's domain. What the men and women who choose shared parenting are like, why they have made such a choice, and what effects this choice has on children and on the parents, both individually and as a couple, is the subject of Ehrensaft's book. Like other things human, shared parenting can have problems. Ehrensaft discusses these problems and gives advice on overcoming them. In the end, however, she shows that overall, everyonechildren, husband/father, wife/mother, and ultimately society as a wholebenefits from shared parenting. Recommended for all general collections.
