Format: Paperback
I'd recommend this book only if you've already read books by credentialed authors, since the authors only expertize is that they have children. They have obviously researched their material because they do offer some good advice. Here's a few books by experts I'd recommend: The Baby Book and The Discipline Book BOTH by Dr. William Sears, and Kid Cooperation (How to Stop Yelling, Nagging and Pleading) AND Perfect Parenting Dictionary BOTH by Elizabeth Pantley

This is a great resource book. My husband and I were about to have our first child and were nervous about what to do with him. This book answered a lot of our questions and helped us to remember to have a sense of humor about the whole child-rearing process. I love the flow chart on what to do when the baby is crying. This is a definately better book than those "What to expect..." books!

I found "Parenting for Dummies" easy and fun to read and filled with useful information for not only first time parents with newborn babies but also for parents with older kids as well. The chapter on communicating with your child was especially insightful.

I had found this book to be one of the best, simplest and most supportive parenting books around. at the time my son was 7 -12 months, I was pretty much without a support system, and this book was my lifeline and my bible to parenting. It's wonderful.
