    Great Book!! - BAD SHIPPING

    The book was great! I had bought it as a gift for my sister who is a new mom and she sure got some great laughs out of it. I was pleased with my purchase. However when I ordered the book it was in stock and I even payed extra for faster shipping. The day the book was supposed to arrive I recieved an email stating there was an error and that they did not have the book and it would not ship out for another five days. I was very upset because my sistet's Mother's Day gift would now be late. I understand that things happen but they could have at least emailed me MUCH sooner to let me know. My sister recieved her book 6 days after it should have been there, but she loved it nonetheless.

    Great Troubleshooting Reference Book

    I bought this fabulous book due to the helpful cover story article in REDBOOK Magazine, January, 2004 edition....On pages 106-107 (in a section called 'Simple Solutions'), concise, sensible excerpts from 'The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Parenting' covered some of the most troubling situations parents face with thier kids. The article highlights 5 common ones...What to do when gum gets in her hair, how to get a marble out of a child's nose, how to deal with a dead pet, how to untie a severely knotted shoelace, and how to help your child pee (safely) by the side of the road (all of which we have faced with are 3 and 5 year olds!) I personally found that removing gum by freezing it with an icecube works! Blowing a short but forceful puff of air into my child's mouth while gently pressing the unclogged nostril closed easily popped the pea out of my 3 year old's nose, and choosing not to automatically yank and tug the massive tight tangle in the sneaker shoelace but rather inserting and wiggling the tines of a fork in the middle to loosen the tightest part first did the trick in a few minutes. 'Doable' parent friendly book with tons of advice for sticky situations. Then on the next page of the magazine (page 108) were more 'Simple Solutions' for breaking bad behavior habits. I especially liked the sensible suggestions from the author of 'The Pocket Parent' about how to stop preschoolers' hitting and tattling. I highly recommend both of these helpful books...one on crises solutions and the other on behavior solutions for 2-5 year olds. These two books are both quick read reference guides with a variety of solutions for each problem. Especially helpful for maintaining the sanity and patience of loving but often stressed-out parents of young children.
