From Publishers Weekly
Pediatrician guru William Sears turns away from his characteristically warm and fuzzy tone, teaming with co-authors Sears (his son Peter, also a doctor) and Foy to issue a dire warning about childhood obesity. According to the authors, children get "overfat" from eating the wrong food and not being active enough; kids today spend more time watching TV or staring at screens than they do in physical play. Often, while they're watching they're eating fast food or junk food. Sears attributes later adult diseases such as cancer and diabetes to a sedentary, unhealthful life style, connecting his own bout with colon cancer to the fact that he was a fat child. To combat the "overfat and underfit" problem, the authors guide parents of kids 6 to 12 through a comprehensive plan addressing lifestyle, exercise, attitude and...

Book Review
In their excellent (and hefty) resource guide, The Baby Book, attachment parenting specialists William Sears and Martha Sears have provided new parents with their approach to every aspect of baby care basics, from newborns to toddlers. Attachment parenting is a gentle, reasonable approach to parenting that stresses bonding with your baby, responding to her cues, breastfeeding, "wearing" your baby, and sharing sleep with your child. For those parents who worry about negative effects of this attention, the Sears say, "Spoiling is what happens when you leave something (or some person) alone on the shelf--it spoils." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Review
Just what does it take to raise a responsible, compassionate child in a society whose overbearing media celebrates and encourages violence, promiscuity, and gluttonous materialism? Dr. William Sears and his wife, Martha, a nurse, understand that instilling a moral code in one's children is among the most daunting, yet vital, of all parenting tasks. In The Successful Child, they've marvelously distilled 34 years' experience parenting their eight children and treating thousands of kids in their pediatric office--along with facts from recent scientific studies--into this collection of constructive, reassuring guidelines for nurturing children into healthy, well-adjusted young adults.

As Dr. Sears told his children, "Your success in life ... will not be measured by the money you make or the degrees you earn, but...

The Pregnancy Book: A Month-by-Month Guide
William Sears
0316779148
June 1997
Paperback

Book Review
The Pregnancy Book is an excellent all-in-one guide to pregnancy from William and Martha Sears, creators of the concept of "attachment parenting." Each of the book's chapters represents a month, and deals with physical and emotional changes, describes the growth of the fetus, and discusses common concerns. The authors also focus on nutrition, exercise, information and support for home births and birthing centers, traveling while pregnant, how to avoid episiotomy, and so on. The approach is gentle, thorough, and includes more information than some month-by-month guides, which makes The Pregnancy Book an excellent choice for pregnant couples.
