This fascinating book presents the stories of infant/toddler caregivers and their work to illustrate the complexity of balancing relationships with babies, families, coworkers, and self, yet remaining emotionally present and mindfully engaged. Enid Elliot explores the inevitable tensions of working within these various relationships and demonstrates how proficient caregivers can develop strategies for achieving this delicate balance. In the process, she raises provocative questions about how we care for babies, and how to provide education and support for their caregivers.


"The author combines interdisciplinary scholarship with years of thoughtful experience in the field to create an engaging examination of many issues currently challenging and rewarding infant/toddler caregivers. Elliot's interpretations of the caregivers' interview responses are exceptional because she is able to relate them to her own experiences, current thinking, and past research. This book is a lovely combination of narrative and theoretical research."
