An essential guide for new moms, celebrating the importance of a mother’s presence in the first years of life **As seen on Good Morning America, Fox & Friends, and CBS New York** In this important and empowering book, veteran psychoanalyst Erica Komisar explains why a mother's emotional and physical presence in her child's life--especially during the first three years--gives the child has a greater chance of growing up emotionally healthy, happy, secure, and resilient. In other words, when it comes to connecting with your baby or toddler, more is more. Compassionate and balanced, and focusing on the emotional health of children and moms alike, this book shows parents how to give their little ones the best chance for developing into healthy and loving adults. Based on more than two decades of clinical work, established psychoanalytic theory, and the most cutting-edge neurobiological research on caregiving, attachment, and brain development, Being There explains: • How to establish emotional connection with a newborn or young child--regardless of whether you're able to pause your career to stay home • How to ease transitions and minimize stress for your baby or toddler • How to select and train quality childcare if necessary • What's true and false about widely held beliefs like "Babies are resilient" and “I’ll make up for it when he’s older” • How to recognize and combat feelings of post-partum depression or boredom • Why three months of maternity leave is not long enough--and how women and their partners can take control of their choices to provide for their family's emotional needs in the first three years Being a new mom isn’t easy. But with support, emotional awareness, and coping skills, it can be the most magical—and essential—work we’ll ever do.

“Sarah and Beth are an absolute gift to our culture right now. Not only do they offer balanced perspectives from each political ideology, but they teach us how to dialogue well, without sacri­ficing our humanity.” —Jen Hatmaker, New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and founder of Legacy Collective “Sarah from the left and Beth from the right serve as our guides through conflict and complexity, delivering us into connection. I wish every person living in the United States would read this compelling book, from the youngest voter to those holding the highest office.” —Emily P. Freeman, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Simply Tuesday and The Next Right Thing More than ever, politics seems driven by conflict and anger. People sitting together in pews every Sunday have started to feel like strangers, loved ones at the dinner table like enemies. Toxic political dialogue, hate-filled rants on social media, and agenda-driven news stories have become the new norm. It’s exhausting, and it’s too much. In I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening), two working moms from opposite ends of the political spectrum contend that there is a better way. They believe that we can choose to respect the dignity of every person, choose to recognize that issues are nuanced and can’t be reduced to political talking points, choose to listen in order to understand, choose gentleness and patience. Sarah from the left and Beth from the right invite those looking for something better than the status quo to pull up a chair and listen to the principles, insights, and practical tools they have learned hosting their fast-growing podcast Pantsuit Politics. As impossible as it might seem, people from opposing political perspectives truly can have calm, grace-­filled conversations with one another—by putting relationship before policy and understanding before argument.

To many, the idea that women must work outside the home is a given. The days of the “stay-at-home-mom” seem to be gone. However, Jan Voerman—father, grandfather, and seasoned pastor—asks mothers to reflect upon how dropping their child off at daycare amidst tears and cries can negatively impact them in the future. He asks them to recall in comparison the joy and contentment that little face shows when he or she can be home in the presence of the most important person in their life: their mother. The time is brief that Christian mothers have to lead their little ones to Jesus and to raise them to respect God and their fellow human beings. Pastor Voerman recognizes the toll on mothers, their children, the church, and even society at large, when mothers must juggle the dual professions of home and career. His concern for mothers and families is based on the work of social science experts, personal observation, and on the very words of mothers who themselves feel torn in the struggle to be a superhero on all fronts.
