Navigate work successfully as a first-time parent Just when you're starting to figure out this parent thing, wham, your leave is over. Take a deep breath, you'll get through it. The first few weeks and months as a working parent are hard, but they can be truly affirming, too. People want to see you succeed, they'll support you if you ask, and you'll find you have energy stores and resources you didn't know existed. You can make great strides forward in your career as a new parent. Succeeding as a First-Time Parent can help. This volume will help you: understand all your options for childcare; have essential conversations with your spouse or partner; stay connected during leave and hit the ground running; get the support you need at work; stay on the career track you want to be on; set reasonable expectations for yourself; carry on amid inevitable exhaustion and emotional upheaval; and set your family up for success. The HBR Working Parents series with Daisy Dowling, series editor, supports you as you anticipate challenges, learn how to advocate for yourself more effectively, juggle your impossible schedule, and find fulfillment at home and at work. Whether you're up with a newborn or planning the future with your teen, you'll find the practical tips, strategies, and research you need to make working parenthood work for you.
