Tricks of the trade for parents of today
This is a book for all parents who wish they could cook like Annabel Karmel, timetable like Gina Ford and listen like Penelope Leach, but who more often than not can only manage baked beans, botched bedtimes and bribery. Today's real parents need instant inspiration. You haven't cooked a batch of freshly-pureed root vegetables? Then which of your freezer foods is the best nutritional option for your hungry child? You've not hand-sewn a costume for the toddler group fancy dress party? What can be grabbed in 20 minutes to earn that first prize? From picky eaters to prima donnas, from chicken nugget addicts to soggy potty refusers, this is the book which accepts your little darlings as they are and tells you how to deal with the real stuff - quickly, with humour and in time for a cup of tea with EastEnders.See all Product description

This book is full of little tips and stories to help and reassure you as you pick your way through the minefield of modern parenting. Unlike many of the other baby and toddler books/instruction manuals, it doesn't promise complete overnight success or offer guarantees of perfect sleep and delightful, well nourished children at all times. Instead this book just gives you honest, real life advice and reminds you that you aren't alone when your child doesn't sleep, eat or behave like a little angel!

This is actually a funny book! But it's also really useful - it's like having the best coffee morning ever, and all your friends giving you their best tips. Because it has real parents in it, the advice is really practical, and there were lots of little bits of advice and imaginative ideas I'd never come across before. It's also got sections on lots of different topics. We've bought this for several friends with children as a gift.

Packed full of tips and advice from a real mum, this is no "expert" who looks after other people's children. Well written in a chatty style, but helpfully divided into chapters so tired parents can dip in and out and find the problem that's worrying them easily.

I found the book easy to read and full of great tips. I have read lots of 'parenting' books but this one was full of tips from real Mums. Other books can be a little bit patronising or full of rules to follow, this one just seems to give some sound advice!
