Publisher's Description

A Win-Win Approach to Marriage and Parenting

All parents want their children to be happy. But many couples today go too far, letting everything revolve around their kids. This hurts the children and the marriage. The good news is you don't have to choose between your spouse and your kids. Drawing from the latest research in neuroscience and his study of families around the world, David Code explains why putting your marriage first actually produces happier kids.

In this book you'll learn how confronting your anxiety liberates your children to establish their own identity, learn self-reliance, and become more confident adults. You'll also discover why you already married the perfect spouse, and why it’s okay to have tough arguments. A good marriage sets a great example for your children's future relationships, and that's win-win for the whole family.

Author Bio

As featured in Parents Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, NPR and the Christian Science Monitor, David Code is a family coach and Episcopal minister. After training at Yale, Princeton, the Sorbonne, and the Bowen Center for the Study of the Family (formerly at Georgetown Medical School), he founded the Center for Staying Married and Raising Great Kids. He lives in State College, Pennsylvania, with his wife and their two children.

A must-read."  —Harville Hendrix, PhD, author, Getting the Love You Want and Giving the Love that Heals: A Guide for Parents

Sherry, MD, professor of pediatrics, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and University of Pennsylvania


"Stress has become a pervasive problem for couples struggling to balance the hectic lives of their kids with their own demanding jobs. David Code provides powerful preventive medicine that 'inoculates' spouses who are currently doing well, but can benefit from his family-strengthening advice."  —Ron Roel, former editor, Newsday
