I read this book while I was pregnant and I loved it. It is beautifully written and full of useful information.

It all started when I was on bed rest due to my pregnancy. I didn't mind her doing an occasional load to help us out. He is unaware of the intensity of my feelings, and I'm afraid of telling him out of fear of rejection. There are a couple of additional concerns: He is 15 years my senior and a medical doctor.

How refreshing to read a book on mothering that is supportive! Dr. Ohye posits the theory that positive mothering grows from recognizing our children as individuals, and responding to them as such. She advocates learning to listen to our children, to their needs, struggles, desires, rather than listen to our own experiences or expectations of what children or mothering ought to be. To differentiate what are our issues as mothers versus what our children are trying to communicate to us: verbally and non-verbally. She encourages us to grow within our relationships with our children, but does not provide charts or guidelines for us to follow: we are encouraged instead to discover what works best for us and our children.
Dr. Ohye also discusses her struggles with mothering, which include struggles as a wife and as a professional. She includes some of her own past and upbringing within the Japanese American culture, and how that has influenced her role as mother. Her writing is clear, direct, warm and personal, and at times quite humorous, though her training as a child psychologist drives the professionalism with which she writes.
Love in Two Languages is a book which we all can enjoy, and from which we all can benefit. When will you write another, Dr. Ohye?

I read this book while I was pregnant and I loved it. It is beautifully written and full of useful information. I love how the author talks a lot about accepting your child for who they are, and not trying to make them who you want them to be. I would highly reccomend this book to any parents.
