Ingenious Parenting Shortcuts Every Mom and Dad Should Know
Parenting can be hard work, and our lives continue to get busier and busier. Is it possible to lighten the load but still raise great kids?
From his experiences as a dad as well as interacting with countless other parents, Jay Payleitner has gathered scores of secrets worth passing along–simple things veteran moms and dads have learned over the years. Things as simple as passing along truths during TV commercials. Or connecting with your children as you tuck them in at night. Or learning how to laugh over spilt milk.
Some of the ideas are old-school secrets that were passed from one generation to the next; others deal with issues that would have never crossed Grandma and Grandpa’s minds. All of them are easy to implement.
This book is designed for a quick, breezy reading experience, letting parents pick and choose those ideas that will make their lives easier, their kids happier, and their futures even brighter.
I think I have been trying to write this review for two weeks. Finding time to sit and write this review has been hard. I totally understand what it means to be a busy family. So when I saw Quick Tips For Busy Families by Jay Payleinter, I was like “give me please!!!”
This is a quick and easy read….thank goodness. It is broken down into 144 different tips ranging from astronomy, to how to explain 911, to camping trips, or even taking home leftovers that are offered.
Not all of these were tips, some were experiences he had with his own kids. While some of the tips were good, others left me scratching my head. Some I thought were just common sense like “Barge Into Their World” or “Explain 911”.
I think over all this book is ok. It may be for parents of younger kids as just to prepare them for some of the crazy that could happen. Not all scenarios will fit with every family. So read the book and take what you will what is good for your family.
