Dr. Frome takes readers through dozens of things families experience every day---winning and losing, eating, falling down--and he shows how each of these things catch people off guard.

Publishers Description
In "What Not to Expect," Dr. Keith W. Frome takes us through dozens of things families experience every day--winning and losing, eating, falling down, pooping--and shows how each of these things catch us offguard. Part of being a parent is that we don't know what to expect. We need to embrace the disappointments and delightful surprises as the spiritual heart of parenthood. Written as a complement to the Expecting series, "What Not to Expect" is thoughtful and humorous, drawing from Dr. Frome's Ivy League education and his vast knowledge of the world's spiritual and religious traditions.

Reviews - What do customers think about What Not to Expect: A Meditation on the Spirituality of Parenting?

brilliant  Jan 15, 2006
This is a great book. Simply great. I don't have time to read a lot of popular books, but I read this because a friend recommended it. What's great about it is that Dr. Frome brings you into the stories he's talking about. You feel like you've lived them and learned from them. I thought the story about Albert Brooks and "pooping" was very funny, and the story about a grandmother who had to move from her beloved house was a great insight into how perceptive little kids can be. I don't know if this book will make me a better person, but at least I feel like I want to try to be, and that's a start.
What Every Parent Should Read  Jan 1, 2006
Dr. Frome's book is not loud, easy or obvious which separates it from the rest of the parent advice book pack. If everyone took the path of parental reverence suggested by this book, our children would be a lot more rooted and our fellow parents would be a lot more fulfilled. Mixing anecdote with theology and poetry and philosophy, Dr. Frome shows us a lens through which the everyday becomes marvelous.
