The Psychological Survival Guide for Parents Series

In this series, Dr. Peebles delves into the most deep-seeded fears and anxieties that parents and parents-to-be often experience but are hesitant to talk about. The Psychological Survival Guide for Parents is an inclusive, easy-to-read, step-by-step, manual to help guide you through complicated feelings parents often encounter. Everyone is thinking it, so Dr. Peebles dares to write about it in this modern guide for the modern family.

While there is no shortage of books detailing the joys and challenges of giving birth and raising children, few focus squarely on the internal and emotional state of the parents. Acclaimed parent expert Dr. Paul Peebles delves into the deepest fears and anxieties that parents-to- be often experience but are hesitant to talk about. Dr. Peebles sheds light on such concepts and issues as The Intruder Complex (who is this strange, tiny creature now running my life?), meddling friends and family, and how bonding works for both mothers and fathers. While being pregnant and giving birth are often joyous and momentous occasions, Dr. Peebles’ expertise offers answers and peace-of- mind around the trickier questions. Becoming a parent is a rite of passage, with many highs and lows, joys and fears, feelings and frustrations.

In a society where two-thirds of divorces occur within six years of having a child, the first few months can be a crucial time for establishing healthy parental roles and routines. In Vortex of Feelings: The Early Months, Book II of the groundbreaking series The Psychological Survival Guide for Parents, Dr. Paul Peebles returns with a frank and fresh discussion about tricky and taboo topics rarely discussed in other pregnancy literature. Picking up where he left off in Book I, OMG! We're Pregnant, Dr. Peebles examines the first months of infancy, a time that can be wrought with anxiety and exhaustion for parents, and, if navigated thoughtfully, moments of pure bliss.

 

Vortex of Feelings: The Early Months wades into common concerns like bonding and breastfeeding and thornier topics like the pros and cons of attachment parenting, the disruption of sexual relationships and the danger of father’s feeling like the “odd man out.” Dr. Peebles anticipates problems and provides new parents with the tools to raise a healthy, happy baby without sacrificing their own intimacy. Dr. Peebles reminds new parents that what’s most important is not the process but the result. In a book that is ultimately about family and how to keep it together, Dr. Peebles offers solutions to issues that can help save your sanity and your relationship.
