Review from MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW: "Highly Recommended"

"As a parent it's really not necessary to have to 'reinvent the wheel' when it comes to raising kids to be healthy, happy, productive, and prepared for what life has to offer them for good or for ill. Not when there's Parenting Solutions: Encouragement for Everyday Parenting Concerns by professional parent educator and pediatric nurse Joan Rice. A practical, accessible, 'user friendly' compendium of instruction, information, advice and insight, "Parenting Solutions" beings with a chapter on life with a baby and dealing with such issues as crying, breast feeding, postpartum depression, teething and weaning. This is followed by informed and informative chapters on establishing a child's self-esteem, life with a toddler, nutrition tips, language development, discipline, toilet training, safety issues, the advent of a new baby in the life of an older sibling, and so much more. Enhanced with the inclusion of bibliography and an index, "Parenting Solutions" is highly recommended reading for anyone having the responsibility of raising a child in today's world."

Read this book. A great gift for new and experienced parents, this guidebook for parents provides answers for the day to day issues parents face, by a parenting expert. Readers will feel embraced and encouraged by the author's words of wisdom and advice.
