Overview

The Honest Toddler: A Child's Guide to Parenting by Bunmi Laditan, Kyle McCarley

In this antidote to heavy-handed advice books written by parenting "experts" who have gotten too big for size 2T britches, The Honest Toddler provides an indispensable manual to parenting that places the toddler's happiness front and center. Outrageously confident and sweetly indignant, The Honest Toddler tackles everything from preferred toddler foods (unbroken crackers and undiluted juice), unconditional love (accept them as they are-pants or no pants), sleep and potty training methods (none), play date etiquette (mi casa es not su casa) and the proper response to random aggression at the playground (embrace it. Park justice is messy but swift). The result is a parenting book like no other, one that will leave moms and dads laughing, and maybe crying, as they recognize their own child in the ongoing shenanigans of one bravely honest toddler.

I've followed the Honest Toddler Facebook page for several months and always get a kick out of the status updates and posts. Only 10 pages into reading an advance copy of The Honest Toddler book and I was already cracking up. I'm sure my husband got sick of me sharing passage after passage with him - though he laughed every time! Sleep: Weaning Yourself Off of It was probably my favorite section. I also loved the book, movie, music, and fairy tale reviews. So glad I'm not alone in my feelings toward the television series Caillou! I did experience a few lulls while reading the book - probably bound to happen with 256 pages of the same shtick - but they didn't last long. The Honest Toddler moves from topic to topic quickly, delivering a multitude of blunt opinions with sarcastic, sassy wit. Yet even among the hilarity, I have to say, I had an "ouch" moment or two while reading this book. These moments gave me pause as I realized how some of the things I do might be coming across to my daughter. The Honest Toddler may be a tongue-in-cheek type of "parenting book," but I appreciated finding bits of wisdom all while laughing wholeheartedly.

This was an entertaining book, written from a different perspective than most parenting books. But you must have a sense of humor. I was laughing out loud in the beginning but as I got further into the book, the humor becomes tiring at times. This book is best read in small doses, but is very funny.

I was searching for a real parenting book and came across this. I had never heard of this child before and didnt realize it was a joke so I kept thinking how this had to be a joke because this was insanely obnoxious. Im glad I didnt waste 11.00 on this and only read the sample.
