This past weekend, my wife and I were cleaning up the home office, where we have a couple of big bookshelves. She pulled down “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”, which we had purchased before the birth of our first child. We sat there for a minute and just thought back to the good times and the excitement of expecting our first daughter.
Anyway, I wanted to recommend this book to any expecting Moms and Dads out there. It’s a great book. The author also has a website:
Helpful Parenting Tips from the bestselling author of “What To Expect When You’re Expecting”
The Author’s profile:
Heidi Murkoff knows that every day of your toddler’s life brings new experiences — from the wonderful (introducing crayons to your tot) to the joyful (buying that first pair of shoes) to the sometimes puzzling (where did that imaginary friend come from?). Here, she addresses your questions and concerns, like Switching From Crib to Bed, When to Start Learning ABCs, Why Toddlers Ask Why, and Teaching Toddlers Responsibility.
Like so many of the great parenting books on the market, the language skills that I teach parents, for dealing with the terrible twos, are highly complementary. I am a big believer in arming yourself with LOTS of tools for the job.
