Samenvatting

From the author of EXPECTING BETTER, an economist's guide to the early years of parenting


With Expecting Better, award-winning economist Emily Oster spotted a need in the pregnancy market for advice that gave women the information they needed to make the best decision for their own pregnancies. By digging into the data, Oster found that much of the conventional pregnancy wisdom was wrong. In Cribsheet, she now tackles an even great challenge: decision making in the early years of parenting.


As any new parent knows, there is an abundance of often-conflicting advice hurled at you from doctors, family, friends, and the internet. From the earliest days, parents get the message that they must make certain choices around feeding, sleep, and schedule or all will be lost. There's a rule—or three—for everything. But the benefits of these choices can be overstated, and the tradeoffs can be profound. How do you make your own best decision?


Armed with the data, Oster finds that the conventional wisdom doesn't always hold up. She debunks myths around breastfeeding (not a panacea), sleep training (not so bad!), potty training (wait until they're ready or possibly bribe with M&Ms), language acquisition (early talkers aren't necessarily geniuses), and many other topics. She also shows parents how to think through freighted questions like if and how to go back to work, how to think about toddler discipline, and how to have a relationship and parent at the same time.


Economics is the science of decision-making, and CRIBSHEET is a thinking parent's guide to the chaos and frequent misinformation of the early years. Emily Oster is a trained expert—and mom of two—who can empower us to make better, less fraught decisions—and stay sane in the years before preschool.

Recensie(s)

Shows that in the hectic haze of parenthood an economist's perspective can prove surprisingly clarifying * Economist * She has crunched all the statistics on breastfeeding, potty training, working mothers and playgroups and discovered there is no optimal set of choices that will produce the perfect child. Most parents say they want happy, well-adjusted, robust kids and there are myriad ways to achieve those results. She's right -- Alice Thomson * The Times * It couldn't be more relevant ... steers clear of recommendations and cast-iron guarantees, instead promising to arm parents with information to make the decisions that are right for them * Daily Telegraph * A huge relief from the scare stories ... Cribsheet is not another call for the end of helicopter parenting or snowplow parenting or whatever kind of parenting is lighting up social media today, and it's not a call to overthrow medical wisdom; it's a call for parenting with context, and it's freeing * Washington Post * Both refreshing and useful. With so many parenting theories driving us all a bit batty, this is the type of book that we need to help calm things down. * LA Times * The Guilt-Free, Data-Driven Guide to Parenting.... uses science and stats to cut through the confusion of raising a family...Smart, relatable, and funny * Bloomberg * I am so grateful for her work -- Amy Schumer
