Item description for 365 Ways To Survive As A Parent by Juliet Janvrin...
Overview How about a year's worth of energetic encouragement for parents--delivered in bite-sized servings? 365 ways to survive as a parent is a high-spirited companion that entertains, while offering the long view to parents who need a little boost and focus. "Children do not notice how deep and high and wide the mess is, but they do expect you to be able to locate their belongings." "However strange the garments, it's the same child inside them." "Kindness to children seeps into their souls." "It's their birthday and they'll cry if they want to." "Children have always done 'nothing' or 'just stuff' at school." Pick up the book and begin reading anywhere. No lecturing. No preaching. Instead, the book faces all the wrinkles and tensions with wit and wry truth and jaunty illustrations to match. Wise and witty reflections on the raising of children -- inspiration for a lifetime of parenting.
