Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

"But has this person ever had children of her own?" This is a common question and complaint voiced about the authors of parenting books. In this sequel to her successful FussBusters at Home: Around-the-Clock Strategies and Games for Smoothing the Rough Spots in Your Preschooler's Day, Baicker-McKee makes clear that she is indeed a parent herself as well as a child psychologist. Written with an earthy sense of humor, her latest book sets out to help parents of small children manage their charges throughout the daunting stresses of daily errands, travel, and ceremonial events with good grace, humor, and even a little fun. In fact, fun is the operative word here, with numerous examples of just how to "make it fun" for those who are creatively challenged. While there is no index, the table of contents is sufficiently detailed for those desiring quick answers. Practical and a joy to read, FussBusters is highly recommended for all parenting and child development collections. Kay Hogan Smith, Univ. of Alabama Lister Hill Lib., Birmingham

Format: Paperback
Hurray! This is a book that is actually funny, helpful and soooo practical. I got this book before we took our 3 1/2 year old on vacation. I had only read a part of the book, but the ideas I took from it (pennies in a cool whip container was priceless,)really helped keep my fussy child happy in the car. Now that I have finished the book, I have used McKee's tips for trips to the supermarket, toy store, the doctor's office and restaurants. This is one you'll go back to again and again. The first Fussbusters book is just as wonderful and is definitely worth buying as well.
