'At last, a practical book on lesbian parenting, including 'dos and dont's,' sound advice, enlightening anecdotes, and plenty of resources. For Lesbian Parents addresses issues particular to lesbian mothers as well as situations universal to all new parents. A 'must read' for lesbian mothers and moms-to-be, as well as all those lucky enough to have such a family in their lives.' - Lesla Newman, author of Heather Has Two Mommies 'This book will help make a tremendous difference in the lives of lesbian parents. Personally, I couldn't put it down! I've read a lot of books on gay and lesbian parenting, and this one is truly incredible. I expect to turn to it time and time again as a valuable resource in parenting my own child.' - Kelly Taylor, Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Alternative Family Magazine 'Johnson and O'Connor's extensive background in developmental psychology enables them to offer deep insight into a variety of childrearing issues, concerns, and questions.' - Sharon A.
