3.0 out of 5 stars A bit over hyped 14 May 2009
I bought this book because others raved about it... yes it contains some useful stuff but I thought it wasn't as great as I'd heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Do You Protect Your Marriage from Hidden Dangers? 11 Jun 2006
By W. Terry Whalin - Published on Amazon.com
Remember when your child begins to crawl and move around the house? What active steps did you take to protect your child from the hidden dangers in the home? Plugs in the electric sockets and maybe some clasps on the kitchen cabinets? You took active steps to protect your child from these potential dangers.

Marriage and Family Psychologist and Counselor Dr. Debbie Cherry helps you take proactive steps to nurture and protect your marriage during the childbearing years in this well-written and practical book. She gives you the essential elements for marriage survival. As Dr. Gary D. Chapman writes in his foreword, "We must learn to "childproof" our marriages during those parenting years, or we will soon learn that marriage withers and dies. When the parental team breaks down and begins to disintegrate, the children become the biggest losers. They lose their family unit, which is where they build their sense of security. When children don't feel secure, their whole world seems to unravel. No amount of baseball, dance, piano lessons, or toys can make up for that kind of loss."

Take the practical ideas in Childproofing Your Marriage and easily apply them into your every day life. Dr. Cherry has the personal and practical experience to help your marriage. I highly recommend this book to anyone with children who are still at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome book 3 Aug 2006
By i love books - Published on Amazon.com
I heard about this book and Dr. Cherry on Focus on the Family. Her energy and passion for marriages convinced me I needed to get this book and read it. The book was such an easy read that I finished it in 1 night. I am married with kids and this book hits home. I have already started applying some of the practical exercises that she gives and they are making a difference!!

Thanks Dr. Cherry and I'll be buying more of your books.
5.0 out of 5 stars Helped me normalize feelings as a new mom 6 Mar 2014
By Katie Holm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book when my son was about a year old. My husband and I are still very much in love but seemed to find ourselves arguing all the time and wanted some ideas on how to stop. Plus it seemed my husband was jealous of the baby to some degree and I found myself just wanting him to get over it, rather than trying to understand how he could feel this way. Reading this book helped normalize much of what I was feeling as a new parent and helped me re-prioritize how important it was to focus on our marriage. I realized I had focused so much on my relationship with my son that I was neglecting the attention my marriage needed. I feel re-energized as both a mother and a wife now, and now my husband wants to read this!
