This day-to-day collection contains 366 tips or "reflections" for battle-worn parents, one per dated page. True to form, the reflections are often humorous, always common-sensical, and always thought provoking. Taken together, they illuminate the complex web that exists between child rearing, marriage, and the family.
Rosemond's philosophy harkens back to a simpler time when "because I said so," was the only reason a parent ever needed to give a child. Nothing has changed, says Rosemond. Successful parenting still calls for the same basic ingredients that worked for thousands of previous generations. By following his old-fashioned, common sense advice, parents can avoid raising children who are spoiled and sassy and deal effectively with daily problems as diverse as bedwetting and boredom, territoriality and television.
