Description
From the author of EXPECTING BETTER, an economist's guide to the early years of parenting With Expecting Better, award-winning economist Emily Oster spotted a need in the pregnancy market for advice that gave women the information they needed to make the best decision for their own pregnancies. By digging into the data, Oster found that much of the conventional pregnancy wisdom was wrong. In Cribsheet, she now tackles an even great challenge: decision making in the early years of parenting. As any new parent knows, there is an abundance of often-conflicting advice hurled at you from doctors, family, friends, and the internet. From the earliest days, parents get the message that they must make certain choices around feeding, sleep, and schedule or all will be lost. There's a rule—or three—for everything. But the benefits of these choices can be overstated, and the tradeoffs can be profound. How do you make your own best decision? Armed with the data, Oster finds that the conventional wisdom doesn't always hold up. She debunks myths around breastfeeding (not a panacea), sleep training (not so bad!), potty training (wait until they're ready or possibly bribe with M&Ms), language acquisition (early talkers aren't necessarily geniuses), and many other topics. She also shows parents how to think through freighted questions like if and how to go back to work, how to think about toddler discipline, and how to have a relationship and parent at the same time. Economics is the science of decision-making, and CRIBSHEET is a thinking parent's guide to the chaos and frequent misinformation of the early years. Emily Oster is a trained expert—and mom of two—who can empower us to make better, less fraught decisions—and stay sane in the years before preschool.*Includes a Bonus PDF of graphs.

      • content: Karissa Vacker was a wonderful choice to perform this enlightening collection of research on parenting young children. Along with an appealing voice and flawless phrasing, her narration has the perfect personality for this work--a sincere and breezy quality that makes listeners feel at home and makes them forget they're listening to heavy-duty science offered by a Harvard-trained economics professor. Emily Oster's writing is both casual and articulate as she describes the empirical evidence on issues like prenatal diets, birthing room practices, breastfeeding, bed-sharing, day care, potty training, eating problems, and two parents working. Oster's research summaries will especially help mothers juggling too many responsibilities feel more secure when handling the myriad choices new parents face. T.W.
