Format: Hardcover
When I first had kids, I felt so clueless and I tried to read everything I could get my hands on, plus ask other parents people lots of questions. It's kind of a cliche that in our culture to say that kids don't come with a manual, so I sure appreciate that the folks at Quirk took that thought seriously and published Stuff Every Mom Should Know. It is written by the authors of the blog RookieMoms and has real world advice, not pithy or unhelpful ideas, but suggestions that I would definitely use, from the baby years up to teens.

They answer all kinds of questions, like how to take care of a baby on an airplane or how to rid a bedroom of monsters. They also give tips for things like what foods your teen should know how to cook or how to put a positive spin on what you say in front of your kids. For example, instead of saying, "Charlie's mom is an idiot", you could say, "I don't agree with Charlie's mom's choices". I can really relate to having to stop myself and trying to say things in a way that would set a good example and I appreciate their hints. What I also found in reading through Stuff Every Mom Should Know, is that the principles of what they are getting at really shine through and not just the specific practices. That is a help to me to know what to do in any situation, even those not listed in the book.

I have a 1-year old so the baby advice rang really true. I read the "little kid" section with fascination. I'm sure I'll be referencing it in the future.

This book actually has GREAT advice. I actually found that it has some of the same advice that I've been giving to pregnant friends, such as how to find a local moms' group and how to get a passport. You know - the stuff that isn't in a baby book, but all of a sudden you're expected to know. This would be an awesome baby shower gift.

As a new mom, I liked this book of lists. It's a great compilation of ideas for moms that are from real moms, not so-called parenting experts.

Cute book with great practical advice. I'm a fan of Heather and Whitney's Rookie Moms blog. This book is a great extension of their blogs. It offers real advice from real moms in a non-judgy way. Takes you through a range of topics from baby to tween (baby proofing in a non-overwhelming way, types of parenting, dealing with lice, and even card games to do with your older child). It's a nice succinct book and I will be sharing it with my mom friends.

I read the authors' blog regularly, so I was looking forward to reading their newest offering. I wasn't disappointed -- this little book is jammed with clever lists written in Heather and Whitney's funny and conversational style. Things like:

How to build a kick-ass blanket fort
Comebacks for unsolicited parenting advice
How to meet other moms
Three foods your teen should be able to cook
Ten last-minute Halloween costumes

My personal favorite at the moment is "How to make a long wait fun". I will be trotting those ideas out (finger puppets! paper race-track!) the next time we are waiting in line at the post office or there's a back-up in the kitchen at a restaurant.
