New York, NY, June 12, 2017 Have a child headed back to school? Surprise international hit The Modern Mother’s Handbook, written by an anonymous New York City mother of two, has gone into its second printing. The how-to manual for moms, which so touched Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (Princess Kate), that she sent the author a thank you note, has been revised and expanded to include advice on how to deal with the endless decisions facing parents of grade school kids, middle-schoolers and young teens. In the age of smart phones and social media, bullying and respecting boundaries, Common Core Standards and fostering a child’s talents and interests, The Modern Mother’s Handbook offers simple, no-nonsense ideas and solutions for parents who want to raise happy, healthy, smart, disciplined and interesting children.
While this handbook can be read in only 60 minutes, it’s packed with 10 years’ worth of no-nonsense, actionable advice for new moms who want to learn how to sleep-train their baby, get a toddler to love eating nourishing foods, avoid common parenting mistakes, know the rules for playdates, TV and video games—and raise a happy, healthy, smart, disciplined and interesting child. Should your baby sleep alone from day one? Can formula save your sanity? Are pacifiers a good thing? What should Dad’s job be? How do you discipline a toddler? What are the tricks to foster healthful eating habits? All these questions are expertly answered, and so much more!
About the Author (Anonymous)
I was living the life in New York City, working at a certain high-pressure fashion magazine when, after learning that a third coworker had suffered a miscarriage in almost as many months, I decided it was time to rethink my priorities. My husband and I had been married for 18 months, and he couldn’t wait to have children. So I gave my notice, enrolled in some cooking classes and a few months later got the joyous news I’d been hoping for via a plastic stick. My new job immediately became trying to become the best mother possible. That was some 12 years ago, and this book explains how I—with the help of many others—was able to raise two happy, healthy, smart, disciplined and interesting children, as well as keep my sanity and marriage intact. Good luck, have fun and never forget that you’re in charge!
