The Total Parent - The Total Package
Round Two: I was babysitting for my niece's kids and pulled The Total Parent off of her bookshelf and found sound, practical advice that reinforces the nursing skills/medical background all parents need to know! It is a great medical reference guide for all parents to have on hand. (I only wish I had this when my kids were babies!) I truly appreciate how well the medical explanations are handled, and was really impressed with the chapters on raising a successful student, teaching values, and all the inspiration (support, advice, TLC!) on general parenting issues.
