Kaz Cooke covers all the basics of baby and child care - feeding, sleep routines, safety and medical matters, going to the loo, equipment and clothes, developmental milestones - in a sane, informative and witty style. Kaz also has hundreds of ideas about everything, from getting rid of monsters under the bed, to distracting a grumpy child, to the items you should never run out of - plus some comforting thoughts about what parents can do when they're sick of being parents. Drawing widely on advice from experts, including ordinary mums and dads and filled with amusing and apt cartoons, "Kid Wrangling" should assist anyone muddling through the first five years of parenthood and child caring.
When I was pregnant "up the duff" was hilarious and helped me through all the things that were happenning to me, howevewr now my baby is growing up "Kid wrangling" just seems to touch on subjects and not be all that useful, certainly not as good and reassuring as her first book.
Well, we've just had a baby and so we're ready this book just to see what it's like. As far books written about parenting, this is definitely one of the better ones. Cooke knows what she is talking about from personal experience. It's a great compendium of ideas and methods, that Cooke presents even handedly, though she is not afraid to say what she (and others) thinks is rubbish, or harmful or dangerous. It also has a useful index if you just want advice on one issue. It lists a lot of books and websites for further research, though it's an Australian book so some may not be easily obtainable.
