Susan Alexander Yates is an author who has truly "been there." When her twin daughters were born, they joined siblings ages two, four, and seven. Through the challenges of raising those five young children, Susan realized the need for an honest, practical book that helps parents through that time of life.
This new edition of the best-selling And Then I Had Kids contains guidance for dealing with common struggles such as discipline, priorities, and fatigue. Susan is honest about the frustrations of parenting, yet encourages parents through her own experiences. She offers a biblical perspective on family life, inspiring mothers (and fathers!) to create a loving atmosphere, find good role models, and shape a Christian home.

I loved this book. I even asked my pastor if we could start a young and new mom's club and discuss this book. I found it very helpful.
I was given this book by by mother in law about 6 months after my son was born. I brought it home and I'm sad to say that I didn't open it until I was close to the end of my third trimester with my second baby!! I'm kicking myself for not reading it sooner. The author is a mother of five, and a God fearing woman. She is very encouraging and uplifting. For all those times when you think you're about to loose your mind, or when you think I'm such a "bad" mom.... Susan encourages you by saying that she herself has been there, you are not alone. This book should be given out at the hospital or your OB.... seriously!!
