From the Inside Flap:

Parents Magazine's
The Best Advice I Ever Got

Raising your kids offers countless rewards-- and plenty of questions. Are you feeding him well? How can you spark her imagination? Who can you trust to care for your child? What's the best way to potty train your toddler?

Finally, there's a source for reliable answers to these and hundreds of other concerns. Parents Magazine's The Best Advice I Ever Got offers tested ideas from real-life parents who share their own ingenious tips and tricks on baby care basics, food and nutrition, health and safety, child behavior, development and learning, and family matters.

Take a peek at some of The Best Advice I Ever Got...

Do you and your baby have the changing time blues? Cheer up with an idea hit upon by Tom and Jane Schott, who discovered that changing their son atop a running dryer calmed him down every time.

Is a trip to the pediatrician akin to a nightmare for your child? Follow the smart lead of Misty Yoon, who videotaped her older son's visits to the doctor and viewed the tapes with her younger daughter to allay her fears.

Are you eager to teach your children good manners? Rebecca Walker shows how simple it can be-- when her young son forgets to say "thank you," a soft tap on the shoulder reminds him.

Do you want to foster creativity without living in a constant state of mess? Listen to Chris Lightner, who keeps carpets clean by setting up her toddler's arts area on a plastic shower curtain.

Ever wonder what to do with old birthday and holiday cards? Take the thrifty path of Josephine Romano, who transforms them into stick puppets for hours of creative theater play.

Also sprinkled throughout are proven strategies from people whose professions involve or relate to children. A pediatrician shares her secret for treating an "owie." A costume designer
dn0 offers advice on creating the ultimate dress-up box. A youth sports psychologist tells how to foster good sportsmanship among kids.

And rounding out the content are the best ideas from Hollywood stars, whose most challenging roles are being parents: Madonna gives advice on tuning out technology and having quality time. Jodie Foster shares her thoughts on what matters most (her son!). And Cindy Crawford extols the virtues of choosing comfort over style when clothing young children.

Fun, friendly, and sensibly organized by topic, this comprehensive volume is filled with old-time and contemporary child-rearing wisdom. Discover how other people approach common concerns, and then determine the best course of action for you and your child. Every parent needs good advice. So here's the best advice you'll ever get: Read this book.
