Editorial Reviews

Review

Dr. Baum's new book, Got The Baby, Where s The Manual?!? Is a valuable resource for parents seeking information about their new roles and how they can best help their children grow and learn. Dr. Baum helps the readers identify old parental behaviors they want to leave behind and offers guidance on the wonderful, but sometimes challenging transition from couple to parents. --National Alliance of Children's Trust and Prevention Funds

Got The Baby Where's The Manual!?! Is a delightful, informative read for all parents-to-be and new parents. Dr. Baum presents a powerful and useable paradigm shift from shame based parenting to respectful parenting. --Jim Fay, Love and Logic Institute

Joanne Baum has written a highly readable and practical book for parents of young children. This is a book that respects both children and parents. I recommend it highly for parents who want something that can truly help them become effective and reflective in caring for their children. --John Hornstein, EdD, Brazelton Touchpoints Center, Children's Hospital, Boston --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This book was refreshing and reassuring. It's time for us to not just love, but respect our children as individuals. Instead of constantly worrying about what other people think, we need to listen to our children whose needs need to be met in order to develop trust in others and confidence in their world. Please read this book. It has simple instructions on how to raise a happy baby. Happy babies turn into confident, well balanced pre-schoolers. It's worth it!

This is a great book for first time parents or if you just need a little refresher. I was particularly interested in reading about the 'Terrific Twos' since our daughter has just turned two. The author does a great job giving practical and useful advice for some of those more challenging parenting moments. Now we have our second baby on the way in just a few weeks. It will be good to go to the beginning of the book and get a little refresher course. Great read! Thanks!

By Lori S. Gardner on August 14, 2007
Format: Paperback
I loved this book! I was desperately searching for help with my 2 1/2 year old....testing limits, pushing boundaries and power stuggles. I felt as if I were being "broken open."
If you want to parent from your heart with grace and compassion you must read this book. Dr. Baum is incredibly insightful, wise, and down to earth. Her suggestions have not only helped me turn the "terrible twos" into the "terrific twos" but have inspired me to approach parenting in a whole new light. Thank you Dr. Baum for this amazing gift.
