Practical Parenting Tips: Over 1,500 Helpful Hints for the First Five Years. Revised and Updated.
Noting that other parents can be an excellent source of practical parenting advice, this book compiles over a thousand practical tips--those not generally found in baby care books or pediatrician's offices--with over 400 new tips compiled since the book's 1982 version. Major topics include: (1) new baby care, including cesarean deliveries, feeding, sleeping, crying, diapering, laundry, and siblings; (2) basics of child care, such as feeding, clothing, and sleeping; (3) hygiene and health, including bathing, dental care, toilet training, and first aid; (4) coping with kids at home, such as childproofing, safety, getting chores done, and storage; (5) the challenge of parenting, including manners, tantrums, sibling rivalry, bad habits, fears, and separation anxiety; (6) family heritage, such as traditions and record-keeping; (7) families on the go, including errands, trips, and moving; and (8) child's play, including indoor and outdoor activities, arts and crafts, and preparing for school.
