Drawing on the latest research and discussions with prominent psychologists, Peters explains our deep-seated resistance to mothering (and fathering) in new ways. With portraits of a dozen real families--corporate and blue collar, religious and secular, step- and single parents, urban and suburban--Peters illustrates the strategies that make this new family life succeed.
