							We've all heard the complaint from parents: They're more overwhelmed than ever before -- juggling demands on their time as well as conflicting advice from family, friends, frenemies and "experts" on how to achieve parental perfection--or risk jeopardizing their little one's future happiness. Pediatrician Jane Scott has seen this parental anxiety up close, and in The Confident Parent she shares advice on how to cut through the confusion, dial down the insecurities and unhelpful advice, and simply do what countless parents around the world have done throughout history: tune in to their own instincts and respond to their little one's needs without overthinking, overstimulating, and over parenting.

"A pediatrician offers back-to-basics tools for helping parents relax and feel more confident about raising their children. Narrator Susan Boyce provides elegant articulation and appealing emotional tones. Her performance captures every ounce of meaning and context in this useful guide. The author was four times a parent before she was a doctor, and her discussion is also informed by her experiences living on four different continents. Her international perspective and audible maturity, as captured beautifully by the Boyce, elevate this advice and make it linger." - AudioFile

"A refreshing approach. Dr. Jane Scott's calming...guidance will help new parents enjoy their babies more and let go of parental anxiety." - Tovah P. Klein, Ph.D., author of How Toddlers Thrive
