It's better to influence than to control : how Nati's mother taught me about letting go -- Worrying doesn't help when you don't know how to worry : how knowing only four words of my son's language taught me to give up being afraid -- There are no apples on oak trees : how trying to turn my Ethiopian son into a neurotic Jew taught me it's nature, not nurture -- Eat through their eyes : how a pinata and some mushy food taught me perspective -- Less than perfect is perfect enough : how not yelling at my son for almost six whole seconds taught me it's okay to get it all wrong -- Everything bad is everything good : how the sound of thirty kindergarteners chanting taught me context is everything -- Grandparent your kids : how mom and dad two times taught me how to happily love my kids -- Epilogue : family photos
