About the Author:

Margaret Thomas has been providing child care in her Cambridge, Massachusetts, home for over 45 years. Retired from the M.I.T. Libraries, Richard Thomas writes from home. His travel articles and essays have appeared in the Boston Globe, Porthole Cruise Magazine, and Cambridge Chronicle. Lisa Dobberteen, M.D., is a practicing pediatrician and an associate professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.

Review:

"We are deeply grateful to Peggy for the care of our two daughters. Always a source of practical advice for health and behavior problems, Peggy is a godsend!"

(Cathy and Curt Vouwie, Manchester by the Sea, Massachusetts)

"The best advice we can give any new mother is 'Listen to Peggy.' In eleven years (and counting) of leaving our children in her care, she has never steered us wrong. When our sons are with Peggy, they take their naps, eat vegetables, pick up their toys, and are smiling at the end of the day."

(Lisa and Ron Walsworth, Newton, Massachusetts)

"Peggy's down-to-earth wisdom helped us raise our children. Love and Limits brings a no-nonsense, loving grandmother and a sensitive pediatrician right into your own home!"

(Marlene Booth and Avi Soifer, Honolulu, Hawaii)

"While Peggy was caring for my children, she was also caring for me, teaching me about my own children, and providing support like an aunt or mother. It's wonderful that other parents can now have the benefit of Peggy's advice and support by reading this charming book!"

(Julie Strong, Lexington, Massachusetts)
