The Big Book of Parenting Solutions: 101 Answers to Your Everyday Challenges and Wildest Worries

“You’ve come a long way, baby…”

This may seem like a tired, old cliché, but it definitely holds true, especially in the realm of parenting. Parents today have to deal with many more obstacles than the parents of yesteryear; from sex, drugs, and violence in our schools and on TV to a whole new realm of cyber-bullying and internet predators. Not to mention that with the tough economic times we’re in, parents are working more and having to depend on the help of family, friends, or neighbours to help out with their kids.

Well, don’t despair. Help is here. No I’m not personally going to come over and clean your house or entertain your little ones, but I can recommend this one-stop-shop, Big Book of Parenting Solutions by Michele Borba Ed.D.

This book is like having a psychologist at your fingertips. “It’s based on cases of children and their families with whom I have worked over the last years or gathered from my observations,” writes Borba, (Notes to Reader).

The Big Book of Parenting Solutions starts out by giving the reader an overview of the “Seven Deadly Parenting Styles.” Take time to read this section and identify the category you most likely fall into, this will help in your “Parenting for Change.”

That’s not all. This book covers every problem, worry, and situation you could possible think of. Plus, it’s broken up into nine sections for easy reference, with sub-categories in each.

Part 1: Family

Part 2: Behaviour

Part 3: Character

Part 4: Emotions

Part 5: Social Scene

Part 6: School

Part 7: Special Needs

Part 8: Day to Day

Part 9: Electronics

After you’ve pinpointed the section you need, you can then read about The Problem: Red Flags, The Change to Parent For, Why Change?, and The Solution. If that’s not enough, each sub-category also has added advice in sidebars with, More Helpful Advice, Late-Breaking News, One Parent’s Answer, and Pay Attention to This.

The Big Book of Parenting Solutions has over 626 pages of solid, practical advice and solutions for all your parenting needs. This would make an excellent gift for anyone just starting a family or in the very midst of raising their own kids.
