About this title

Synopsis:

Nin a young first-time mom, excited, but uncertain about the adventure she faces. She writes to her deceased mother's best friend, Kathe, a professional in the field of child development. Kathe writes back with warmth and wisdom, and so begins an ongoing dialogue about childcare, young motherhood, womanhood, feminism, family, and much more. As the baby grows, Nin grows with him. Guided by Kathe's insight, she experiences and understands baby blues, colic, toilet training, first steps and first words, the terrible twos, and preschool. We also follow Nin's own progress as a young woman struggling to maintain her individuality while she devotes herself to mothering.

From the Inside Flap:

From the back cover:

"Whenever I attended a child psychiatry conference at which Eleanor Weisberger discussed a family's problem, I was impressed by two things: her sympathetic understanding of both the child's and the parents' difficulties, and the way she could present the problem in clear, sensible, human terms--without jargon." --Benjamin M. Spock, M.D.

As the baby grows, Nin grows with him. Guided by Kathe's insight, she experiences and understands baby blues, colic, toilet training, first steps and first words, the terrible twos, and preschool. We also follow Nin's own progress as a young woman struggling to maintain her individuality while she devotes herself to her role as mother.

Letters from Nin reads like a novel, but it's full of information and advice--for parents, their substitutes, day care personnel, teachers, psychologists, pediatricians, policy makers--anyone involved with the rearing of children.
