Great Parenting Resource - don't let the title scare you
on September 10, 2012
i think the title may turn some people off, but this was one of the best parenting books that really shaped how we raised our two babies/toddlers. we don't follow everything in the book, but the emphasis on reading and no screen time has made a valuable impact in our lives. We completely turned off the tv (literally, we don't even get local channels) and it has been one of the best decisions we ever made. Even if you don't follow all of her recommendations or don't go to that extreme, anyone can find this book very helpful. It will also give you a reason not to follow what you see as mainstream. Recommend to any new parents looking for direction and the WHYS behind making some of those decisions. I refer to her recommended reading list often and have gotten some great book gems from there.
