Find out how to make the toughest job in the world a whole lot easier.

The advice given in most parenting books sounds fine in theory.  But it often doesn't feel right in practice.  Lois Nachamie, a mother herself, teaches parenting.  Her experiences with thousands of full-time and working mothers, fathers, caregivers, and children has helped her create this warm, wise, down-to-earth guide to what parents today need to teach their children in the first five formative years.

̣ Practical tips to help you deal with the daily grind and nitty-gritty of sharing, hitting, sleeping, potty training, and toys.

̣ Activities and exercises to help you teach your child how to choose, how to take turns, and maybe even how to read.

̣ True tales from the trenches, where you'll see how other mothers handled problems--sometimes successfully, sometimes not.

̣ Dealing with tantrums--your child's and yours.

̣ Loving, fun ways to launch your little one on a glorious learning curve.

̣ Limiting TV time and ads that give our kids the Gimmies.

Finally, the one book that does it all--offers commonsense, practical strategies to help you teach social skills and successfully set limits; present ideas about simple values and love; and invites you step into your own as a parent....

Big Lessons for Little People--the Mother's Helper you've been waiting for.
