Brenda Nixon gives practical advice from personal experience that most parently classes fail to share. Her helpful hints and sharing form her own experience as a mom should let any first-time mom know she is normal in her feelings and reactions.
I particularly like the appendix that gives places to go for more help on partlicular subjects.
I wish I could have had her book to read when I had my first child 27 years ago.

I have been a parent for 10 years to three wonderful boys. There have been times that I wish I could have had more information about raising children when they were younger. "Parenting Power The Early Years"helps with these crucial ages. The best advice I could give parents is to have more trust in themselves. You get so much advice as a first time parent it makes you question yourself. I know I did, but then by child 3 I said "OK, I understand what you are saying" but then I said to myself,"The kids are fine I am the parent so leave me alone!" Brenda Nixon's book wants parents to believe in themselves! Face it, being a parent is never easy, but this book is a resource that will help give you information maybe you didn't know about. I also like the book because I am a mom,and on the radio, and I do not have alot of extra time to read complicated textbook type writing. This is an easy read that is meant to simplify parenting not make it more complex. And believe me with 3 boys, I do not need more complexity in life!!

What to do about separation anxiety, how to find quality childcare, effective discipline using positive talk or consequences, potty training, thumb-sucking, raising responsible kids, getting them ready for Kindergarten...it's all in here! This is the best Cliff Notes on how to raise a child in the first five years that I've ever found! Even in the back of the book there's tips for giving the right age appropriate gift, and a child development key so you know if yours is acting normal and resources for more indepth reading. I especially found the suggested websites helpful. How many books do you find that give more information about other websites and resources to continue your learning? Parenting POwer has it all. I'm so glad I found this treasure and plan to reread it several more times in the coming years.

Now here's a parent-friendly "must read!" Brenda Nixon's PARENTING POWER IN THE EARLY YEARS is full of motivating ideas and solutions presented in a confident and buoyant way. No heavy textbook stuff in this book! Easy to read. It's perfect for a dad who wants to quickly dip into a section during a TV commercial. Then he might just feel more equipped the next time his kid trys a tantrum.
I especially liked the "Ready for Kindergarten?" section and the creative ideas for "Relief from Cabin Fever." Now I have a good book to give any new mom or dad.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed looking at this book. I had six kids of my own and although they are grown now, I could remember so many of the things that this book talked about. Her advice would have helped me many times I am certain. My now grown five tell their own offspring that "Grandma always locked us outside with peanut butter and jelly when we were bad!" I must have done something right as they are all five beautiful caring adults today. I will get a copy of this book for them to use in raising my now 16 grandchildren . . .with inflation the book is much more reasonably priced than peanut butter, and much more interesting to digest.
All kidding aside this is a wonderful book. It would make a wonderful gift for a new parent, grandparent, or even child care centers. Brenda writes from experience and that is the best kind of writing. Be sure to read it!

Parenting Power In The Early Years is an easy read packed with useable information that not only encourages, but enlightens. The author's humor relieves the jitters about child care for both new parents and new grandparents.

Solid concepts of a pro with good "rubber meets the road" advice of a veteran parent. Accessible, insightful, seasoned, potent. Enjoyed by both parents in this house.
