    1 thought on “No Regrets Parenting: Turning Long Days and Short Years into Cherished Moments with Your Kids

    1. the good thing about this book was that each chapter was only a page or two long this is a good fit for parents, who often only have a few minutes to steal away for pleasure reading before their kid decides to crawl underneath the coffee table try to sit up for the TEN MILLIONTH TIME that hour, hence bumping their head crying a lot of the ideas in this book are specific to families with older children, so i won t comment on their efficacy but there were some okay tips for parents like me, who ha [...]

    2. While reading this book, I kept thinking of the type of parent who would also read it Every time I asked myself this question, the answer was parents who are already parenting the way he suggests Very few readers will get an aha moment while reading this book The book focuses on common sense ways to spend time with your children in a richer way Although there were no major take aways for me as a parent, I did like many of the suggested activities, particularly that focused on teenagers and colle [...]

    3. Wanna make a parent cry Tell him or her this factoid from No Regrets Parenting There are only 940 Saturdays between a child s birth and her leaving for collegeif your child is five years old, 260 Saturdays are already gone Gone It really puts into perspective that old parenting saying that the days are long, but the years are short Rotbart, a pediatrican, has compiled a series of short essays explicitly geared toward short spurts of bathroom reading with advice on how to maximize that limited ti [...]

    4. Reads like a blog than a book Each chapter is only 2 3 pages long Half the first part is spent telling you about the great and wonderful techniques you ll learn in the second part, but that doesn t help me while I m reading part 1 Unlike other parenting books, where they say Don t do X and follow it with Do Y instead , this one just says Don t do X and implies you might learn in the second half of the book Which you don t All the suggestions were blindingly obvious do overflow work while young [...]

    5. This is not THE definitive parenting book, but that was exactly what I liked about it Normally I want some research data to back up the claims made in parenting books, but the author is a pediatrician who is simply offering some suggestions for ways to make the most of the limited time we have with our children His ideas could be incorporated into anyone s family life, regardless of their personal parenting philosophy Parenting books tend to come with a healthy dose of guilt, but this one actual [...]

    6. Overall the information in this book is pretty good, though some tips like returning pets to shelters if your kid doesn t care for them are terrible Also the suggestions for what to text to your kids are so off base I couldn t help but laugh seriously, it sometimes felt like Rotbart was writing this book for grandparents My main complaint is that it was super boring to read The chapters were short, thankfully, but the writing was bland I do take it as a good sign that most of these things I alre [...]

    7. This book is a great reminder of how to build good relationships with your kids It s easy to read, practical and helpful My favorite quote Be the kind of person you hope your kids will become And then spend enough time with them that they learn how to become that person.

    8. A few interesting tidbits Love the short chapters and the cut to the chase no beating around the bush format My main displeasure in this book was that it consists of a lot of obvious things that didn t really need to be written down somewhere.

    9. Didn t love the tone at the beginning a little stressful and guilt inducing But the suggestions in the second half of the book were good.

    10. I came across this book in a round about way Dr Rotbart s recent book was mentioned in a magazine probably Parents That one wasn t available at my library, but this one was It sounded interesting, so I requested it.I have 11 and 14 year old step daughters who have been part of my life since they were three and five Additionally, I now have my own 17 month old son and another on her way The fact that the days are long but the years are short is something I am intimately familiar with Along with [...]

    11. This book is primarily written for working parents Although I m a stay at home mom, I still got a lot of good ideas He emphasizes the importance of really being with your kids mentally as well as physically so when they leave for college, you won t have regrets.The first part of the book is principles and the second half is ideas of how to apply those principles A principle from the first half was knowing how to hit your kids brain buttons Most of the time you re trying to tell your kids somethi [...]

    12. I don t have kids nor am I expecting a child, but I received this book for free and decided to read it because I had nothing else to read The book isn t about a specific parenting technique It just offers tips on how to make the most of your time with your children before they grow up and leave home The book is written in chapters, but each chapter is maybe a page or two long So it s the type of book that you can pick up whenever and read for a bit, then put down and get back to it whenever you [...]

    13. I read the first half and just skimmed the second half since it wasn t age appropriate for my boys Thankfully, this book didn t make me feel guilty Always a plus I liked the reminder that even though we can be with our kids all the time, that doesn t necessarily mean we re really getting quality time together I really focused on being in the moment today and felt the difference I was happier and fun, thereby making Brady happier and fun When I played with Austin on the floor, I made sure I was [...]

    14. I had read a few of his ideas in a Parents magazine a few months ago and wanted to read the whole book Overall, he has some interesting ideas in how to make the littlest moments in time matter with your children I liked this approach that how if you work, etc and can t have oodles of time with your kids, you can still impact them in little snippets of time Some of the ideas were obviously geared for when my kids are older, but I especially liked the ideas of pajama walks and taco nights, establi [...]

    15. Showed up on another list as a must read book for parents We have this book in our library parenting collection I just read it First, for the busy parent there are too many words and not enough bubbles of information If someone cannot figure out the most important job in the world is being a parent and the most important thing is to spend time forget the circulation of this book It was purchased this year and has yet to be taken out I briefly checked other circulation statistics a other librarie [...]

    16. I will admit I have been making some oddly unrewarding reading selections lately, due to an interest in trying out the ebooks available from the public and university libraries This book is another example of one I would likely never spend time with in print, but it was a very quick read on the iPad Lots of common sense ideas for making the most of the time you have with your kids, focusing on the small, daily moments, and not just the special events I skipped around a lot because some most stuf [...]

    17. Overall this was a parenting book I heard about on a parenting podcast and while giving the interview with the author I didnt want to punch him typically that is my reaction to most people who claim they have an ideal parenting philosophy I would give this closer to 3.5 stars Some of the book wasn t applicable to my stage of parenting as it was written for parents of teenagers, but for the most part these simple ideas for finding connections with your kids were ones I could see myself implemen [...]

    18. The only part of this book I found remotely interesting was the fact that it said There are only 940 Saturdays between a child s birth and her leaving for collegeif your child is five years old, 260 Saturdays are already gone And that is only likely because my daughter is about to be 5 The remainder of the book was spent telling you it would give you great ideas in the scond half of the book, which I felt was lacking Basically a reminder to unplug and prioritize while you still can.

    19. My boss, who I really admire, recommended this book to me This is a quick read would be a great bathroom read for those that do that but I read it on my Kindle The chapters are really short, and you can jump around to whatever section you like A lot of this seems like common sense, but it s a great reminder to all parents that the years really will fly by and to take advantage of every opportunity you have with your kids You don t have to do elaborate or expensive things, just meaningful Parts o [...]

    20. I read part 1 of the book very ready for the great suggestions he kept promising in part 2 Most of the suggestions were so common sense And the others were only practical to maybe the author Take one child at a time on business trips I don t know people who can actually do this Right, have my kid help me change out the hot water heater I got very frustrated and didn t read the very end The cliches were also annoying Pardon our dust Ug

    21. I didn t find a lot of useful tips in here on how to spend time with my children, but I thought there were a few nuggets of wisdom that made it worth the read To give the author credit, there s really only so much we can do with our lives to free up time with the kiddos Once you ve heard them, you ve heard them Lastly, I think it s a good read just to keep reminding us of what s important All to often what we say is a priority and what we DO as a priority are vastly different.

    22. The general tone and message about being truly present in your kids lives was good Lots of obvious advice and suggestions some even a little cheesy or for children much younger than mine I sort of pity the family that wasn t already doing many of these things but all of us parents experience the long days short years phenomenon and it is great to be armed with a good attitude and some tips.

    23. Not a lot of meat to this Main idea is to find ways to make ANY time you spend with kiddos enjoyable Doesn t need to be fancy or cost money Can be during commericials even I did consciously decide to do this while shoveling snow I wanted to go inside, but instead had a snowball fight with son neighbor boy.

    24. The author mentioned in the intro that this would be a good book to read on the toilet I probably should have just stopped there The book consist of the author s opinions on various parenting subjects presented in the same manner as a great aunt lecturing on the right way to raise a child Yikes.

    25. The premise of the book is goody attention to your children and make time with them meaningful and special But I didn t find any fantastic ideas or much in the way of specific things to do He definitely mentions specifics in the second half of the book but I felt like most of the book was just filler and fluff for a few decent ideas.

    26. I liked this so much better than Rebecca Cohen s FIFTEEN MINUTES OUTSIDE 365 WAYS TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE AND CONNECT WITH YOUR KIDS It s a light, fast read, but it s a nice reminder that there are only so many weekends before your child is grown and out of the house We re already doing a lot of these things, but I liked the author s sincerity Three and a half stars.

    27. I really liked the idea of this book Part 1 has a lot of great insights into making time meaningful with your family, and cherishing the precious moments of childhood I was expecting specific and new ideas from Part 2 of how to do so and was a little disappointed That said, it was good to be reminded of ideas I already knew about and now have a desire to implement.

    28. Great book with extremely useful methods to spend meaningful time with kids even in today s super busy, distracted, speedy world Loved it for being practical and relevant and economical Yayy Some really wonderful techniques in here like the lovable and importantly, do able concepts of Double Dip and Make Your Own Tradition Win win
