Sneaky Parenting

I have to admit, I can’t think of much to say about this book. It’s short, it’s sweet, it does exactly what it says on the tin. Despite being just under 200 pages, however, it is packed to the brim with helpful hints and tips from real parents, who have been there, done that, bought the t-shirt factory, and are certified experts in raising their own kids. From making your own Play-Doh, to cleaning up potty training accidents with cat litter, to water painting, to defusing tantrums, to dealing with the heartbreak of sending your little darling(s) off to pre-school… it’s all here! And it’s all presented clearly, with a liberal sprinkling of humour and without all the guilt-inducing “Child Rearing Theory” waffle that so often fills out the pages of your heftier tombs.

Jo got this book out of the library, we have both read it and we have decided to buy it… and I recommend that anyone else who is about to embark on the thrilling, terrifying, exhausting, exciting journey that is Parenthood should do the same! 🙂
