For the first time ever, New York Times bestselling author Stefanie Wilder-Taylor’s three whip-smart, practical, and hilarious parenting guides—now in one convenient ebook collection. Covering every stage of child rearing imaginable—from labor pains to growing pains and everywhere in between—this convenient ebook set offers readers access to all things parenting in one collection. The boxed set includes: Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay Friends, family, colleagues, the UPS delivery guy—suddenly everybody is a trove of advice, much of it contradictory and confusing. With dire warnings of what will happen if baby is fed on demand and even direr warnings of what will happen if he isn’t, not to mention hordes of militant “lactivists,” cosleeping advocates, and books on what to worry about next, modern parenthood can seem like a minefield. Here’s how you can separate the practical from the practically certifiable. Naptime Is the New Happy Hour Once the zig-zagging hormones and endless, bleary-eyed exhaustion of the first year have worn off, you’re left with the startling realization that your tiny, immobile bundle has become a rampaging toddler, complete with his or her very own, very forceful personality. How do you deal with that tiny bundle of joy that’s suddenly become, like, a real person? Gummi Bears Should Not Be Organic From the moment life first drops us Hunger Games–style into parenthood with just a naked, crying stranger and Google for company, we’re taunted with scary studies and impassioned opinions about how to do it perfectly. You’re going to need a friend to give you a shoulder to cry on when times get rough, and to give you a smack upside the head when you start replacing Goldfish crackers for kale chips. Luckily, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor’s in the market for a new MFF: Mom Friend Forever.

For parents of children with special needs, to achieve visibility and meaningful interaction in their communities takes a whole set of skills and commitment quite different to those required to achieve the same outcomes for a family of typically developing individuals.This is an everyday struggle that not all parents face. It requires 'Extreme Parenting' and that's what author Kylie McClelland shares in her new book- her personal experience, the issues these parents need to deal with, and the strategies and techniques they must equip themselves with to achieve the parenting required to guide their challenging children toward lives of dignity and choice. "I am not in the business of telling anyone how to live.This is just what I did, how I met the challenges and helped my family both as individuals and as a unit to have a life which is more happy than not.It's certainly not the only way, it may not be the 'right'way, but it is what has worked for us." TESTIMONIALS “This is a thoughtful, compassionate and insightful book that touches the heart and inspires the very best of human endeavour. It is a tribute to those who live with a disabled person, advocate for disabled persons, and who strive to educate a world naive to the challenges and diffi culties of disability. Merely informing does not often educate in matters such as these. This personal story of hardship, heartbreak, frustration, coupled with joy, hope, achievement and love will be instrumental in doing so, whilst supporting and strengthening others. In doing so, Kylie McClelland has sent a strong challenge to those charged with the care and support of those we are privileged to serve.” Dr Bruce Chenoweth Senior Staff Specialist Psychiatrist, Development and Assessment Team, South East Sydney Local Health Network Conjoint Senior Clinical Lecturer, School of Psychiatry, University of New South Wales “This book oozes intelligence, deep thought and confronts those who cannot accept that our human diversity must be celebrated and accepted . . . it conveys exactly what needs to be said . . . just wonderful.” Mary Lou Carter, Mother, Activist, Secretary of the Carers Alliance “This book is my bible and needs to be in every carer’s hands. Money can not buy the kind of help this has given us.This book will change lives.” Betty Slatyer, Primary carer, grandmother and advocate Every health professional should read this book. Kylie McClelland will become to carers of children with autism spectrum disorder what Lionel Logue became to King George VI’s speech; a person who thinks outside the square and dares to use their own vision, instincts and determination to achieve results.

'[A] valuable addition to the literature on chronic paediatric illness... The book provides an in depth understanding of the path through chronic illness, illustrating the obvious effects on the child, but also the parents, siblings and the family as a whole across the spectrum from the psychological and social to the physical... There is much to be learnt from this book and it deserves careful reading.' - from the Foreword by Hilton Davis, Emeritus Professor of Child Health Psychology, King's College London Parents of children with chronic illnesses experience 'extreme parenting'. Parenting under extreme circumstances, like an extreme sport, challenges us to find our true strengths, to push ourselves physically and emotionally. This book is a guide and a source of support for parents of children with long-term illnesses. Sharon Dempsey argues that by helping parents to cope with their child's condition we are ultimately helping the child, and that parents are better able to live a full, enjoyable life if they have an awareness of strategies and knowledge to cope with the difficulties of dealing with their child with a chronic illness. The guide is packed with practical advice, models of exploration and lists of action points, and will empower parents to be good advocates for their children. It will also provide health professionals with invaluable insights into the demands of living with chronic illness.

The moment the second line on the pee stick turns pink, women discover they've entered a world of parenting experts. Friends, family, colleagues, the UPS delivery guy -- suddenly everybody is a trove of advice, much of it contradictory and confusing. With dire warnings of what will happen if baby is fed on demand and even direr warnings of what will happen if he isn't, not to mention hordes of militant "lactivists," cosleeping advocates, and books on what to worry about next, modern parenthood can seem like a minefield. In busy Mom-friendly short essays, Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay delivers the empathetic straight dirt on parenting, tackling everything from Mommy & Me classes ("Your baby doesn't need to be making friends at three months old -- you do! But not with people you'll meet at Mommy & Me") to attachment parenting ("If you're holding your baby 24/7, that's not a baby, that's a tumor"). Stefanie Wilder-Taylor combines practical tips with sidesplitting humor and refreshing honesty, assuring women that they can be good mothers and responsibly make their own choices. A witty and welcome antidote to trendy parenting texts and scarifying case studies, Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay provides genuine support, encouragement, and indispensable common-sense advice.
