Book for the Toddler Parents

So a few months ago a twitter friend @abbienourmel (read her blog its interesting!) recommended a book called "I Brake for Meltdowns: How to Handle the Most Exasperating Behavior of Your 2- to 5-year-old"

I thought mehh I don't need a book to tell me that I am a bad parent and yet another thing to run my all ready complicated life even more to the ground. So I waited. As my life got more of a meltdown and my husband told me to "fix myself", I decided to check the book out.

And boy did this book change my life and book recommendations! I have been reading this book for a week now and I have been able to control my own melt downs when it comes to the tiny terror. I haven't put some of the valuable information in to practice because I have to wait till they appear, however the information about sleep time and how to discipline them with out being over bearing has been super effective. I have learned about potty training in a whole new light and feel like I can tackle the task with a much stronger grasp instead of yelling at her, I can make sure she's comfortable with her life and that milestone as I think she wasn't too happy with the fact that I have been hard nosed about getting her out of diapers... excuse me Pull-Ups, for the last 8 months. I don't look at it as shameful or a reflection of my parenting, but something she needs to be ready for and I think that will win the war and not have to fight the battle.

As the best advice I can give a new parent is to buy this book before the kid(s) reach the age of two because it will save your sanity trying to figure out how to make sure you don't become "that parent" at the playground. You know, the one that when a kid does one thing out of line, its like World War 3 and even the birds clear a path for the explosion.

Safety First with SafetyBook - Review and Giveaway!

Being a second time mom, you would think I would have the folder with all the manuals and have all of the product cards filled out and sent to the manufacture for the recall notices all completed? Confession, I have with a few products but not all! I know I am a bad mom for not doing this. However, as easy as surfing the Net; Safety Books makes it even easier to have the information at your finger tips.

I plunged in and registered for Safety Book I registered two items at first to check out the site. If you look below here is just an example of what I found out:
There was a re-call notice last year for my car and I didn't get anything from the car company!

This notice is very detailed and a lot of information about the recall
This prompted me to call the dealership and see if my car was effected since I have to drive my kids around town every day and guess what? I took my car into the dealership and they fixed the problem. Now I am a SafetyBook fan for life!
