You are not alone!

What do you do when...
Your toddler goes berserk because the meatloaf touches the green beans on his plate?
Your son keeps missing when he's standing at the potty?
Your child's bedroom is overrun with nighttime monsters?

Parents magazine's It Worked for Me! clears up these and thousands of other quandaries. And the solutions come from people who have been through it all: parents just like you. With busy schedules, we often don't find the time to share our parenting advice or commiserate about daily hassles. Now, parents can again take comfort in knowing that others not only have had similar experiences, but also that they have found inventive solutions stemming from their own wisdom and compassion.
Based on Parents magazine's popular column, this comprehensive collection of surefire tips and techniques covers the entire gamut of child rearing--beathing, feeding, dressing, discipline, bedtime, playtime, school, television, and much, much more. From divorce and separations anxiety to making the deccision to go back to work and helping children adjust to a new child-provider, parents will find creative and practical solutions for nearly any situation. So breathe a sigh of relief. Won't it be good to have a voice of experience on the bookshelf?

Parents magazine has been America's #1 family magazine since 1926.

The big move to the cup...When parents share their secrets, saying good-bye to the bottle or breast doesn't have to be traumatic.
