Sharon Duke Estroff

Publisher: Broadway Books

How do you help your child choose between mandatory baseball practice and Hebrew school? How can you plan a birthday party (not to mention bar or bat mitzvah party!) for your child without sacrificing your values, sanity, and pocketbook? How can you keep peace on the homework homefront? And how do you deal with Santa envy–let alone the entire month of December?

As any modern Jewish parent knows, balancing family traditions and the realities of contemporary culture can be incredibly challenging.

Answering questions both old and new, Jewish and secular, internationally syndicated parenting columnist and award-winning Jewish educator and mother of four, Sharon Duke Estroff illuminates the ways that Jewish tradition can be used to form a lasting, emotional safety net for modern families. Can I Have a Cell Phone for Hanukkah? is an instant classic.

"A gem of a new book!"
-Ari Goldman, New York Daily News

"I'm not Jewish, but I loved this book! I laughed through it all while still appreciating the serious lessons it teaches. Every mom and dad will find themselves nodding and smiling as they discover themselves on every page."
-Bonnie R. Strickland PhD
Former President of the American Psychological Association

"Sharon has filled Can I Have a Cell Phone for Hanukkah? with lots of practical advice for parents including how to deal with Santa envy, how to survive the homework struggle, how to plan a birthday party without breaking your budget, and how to help shy kids make friends. There are also excellent chapters on modern playdate protocol and parenting the Net Generation."
-Jewish Literary Review

"Can I Have a Cell Phone for Hanukkah is a valuable must-buy for all Jewish parents, and not just for Hanukkah. Not only does Estroff give practical childrearing advice but her joyful approach to Judaism is a healthy antidote to religious skeptics."
-Hadassah Magazine

"Sharon Duke Estroff has the uncanny ability to give solid, useful and practical information on how to raise children while making you laugh out loud at the same time. Her book is a must for every parent - Jewish or non-Jewish."
-Stephen J. Nowicki PhD

Teaching Your Child the Language of Social Success-

"From playdates, homework, and extracurricular activities to bar/bat mitzvah, tzedakah, and Jewish holidays, with insight and humor Estroff offers suggestions for coping with the day to day challenges of modern parenting. An easy read, packed with good, practical advice."
- Chicago Jewish Star
