Overview

Here are just a few of the ideas in this book that parents have actually used to make life with young children easier:

  • Childproofing: Keep a rubber band around the toilet tissue roll to prevent waste and clogged toilets due to "flushing fascination." Drape a towel over the top of the bathroom door to keep children from shutting it tightly and locking themselves in.
  • Tantrums: Listen. Acknowledge the source of frustration. Whisper in your child's ear. The screaming may stop or turn into a giggle. Disappear into another room. You'll feel better and the tantrum will lose steam.
  • Hair care: Sit your child in a high chair to prevent "wandering." Spread a newspaper underneath. Remove gum from hair with peanut butter. Work it into the hair and then comb out both gum and peanut butter.

I bought a copy of this book for myself many years ago before it was revised. I found it to be loaded with excellent suggestions on being a practical and frugal parent. Raising children doesn't have to be SO expensive, as you will find in these pages. I have given this book at baby showers, and it is always read and appreciated. You won't go wrong with this book you'll pick it up again and again.
