Synopsis: Remember a time when you and your mate weren’t too tired for romance? When you could take off on the spur of the moment for a glamorous evening or sexy weekend? Before listening for the patter of little feet put a damper on lovemaking? Believe it or not, you’re about to recapture the rapture!

From the New York Times bestselling author of the runaway hit Light His Fire and number-one Light Her Fire comes a new self-help guide for men and women that fills a universal need. In How Can We Light a Fire When the Kids Are Driving Us Crazy?, love expert Ellen Kreidman conclusively proves that passion and parenthood can go hand in hand. Through observations, success stories, and techniques that have come out of her famous seminars, she shows married couples exactly how to light their fires and achieve the greatest possible level of emotional and sexual fulfillment.

According to Kreidman, rekindling the sparks begins by acknowledging three core principles:
 
• If you don’t have an affair with your mate, you risk the possibility that someone else will.
• The best gift you can ever give your children is having a lasting relationship with your partner.
• The happiest, most well-adjusted children come from a home in which the parents love each other.
 
From that springboard, How Can We Light a Fire When the Kids Are Driving Us Crazy? goes on to offer sage advice and creative suggestions that encourage moms and dads to be loving partners, too—from homework assignments that teach you, your mate, and your children how to become better and more sensitive communicators, through a genuinely innovative list of “fifty-one ways to light a fire,” to two pages of stickers for scheduling and anticipating romantic rendezvous. And the Parents’ and Children’s Bills of Rights will keep the home fires burning while preventing meltdown.
 
Whether the problem is finding a capable baby-sitter, the advisability of letting the kids into your bed, or discovering the best places to make love (home is the least arousing), you’ll find a wealth of effective answers here. Filled with the wit, compassion, and basic smarts that are Ellen Kreidman’s trademarks, How Can We Light a Fire When the Kids Are Driving Us Crazy? can make a marvelous difference in family happiness and harmony—as it restores the sizzle of courtship to married life.
