Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Books like Simplify Your Life and Don't Sweat the Small Stuff have encouraged millions of readers to slow down and enjoy life more. Now, Jessica Teich and Brandel France de Bravo help new parents- who barely have time to return a phone call or wash a sock- learn to do less, listen more, and spend focused, fruitful time with their children. Practical and fun to read, Trees Make the Best Mobiles urges parents to treat every task-even diapering and feeding-as a chance to connect with their child, and gives calming advice about hot-button issues from pacifier use to temper tantrums. Parents will be relieved to discover that they don't have to buy lots of stuff-a tree outside a baby's window can serve as a mobile-or shuttle kids from one activity to another. In fact, in today's hectic, high-speed world, children need less "stimulation" and more unhurried interaction with the people who matter most. The authors call their approach "present parenting," because they believe being "present in the moment," without resentment or distraction, is the greatest present any parent can give.

Synopsis:

Trees Make the Best Mobiles is the perfect bedside companion for first-time (or weary second- or third-time) parents. In 44 bite-sized chapters, the authors help parents learn to do less, listen more, and spend focused time with their children. The authors call their approach "present parenting" because they believe being "present in the moment, " without resentment or distraction, is the greatest gift any parent can give. Teich and France de Bravo address a host of topics — from diapering to spanking, from whining to sharing toys — without ever seeming preachy. They offer calming advice about hot-button issues like pacifier use and temper tantrums, and give parents "permission" to step back from competitive child-rearing and just enjoy their kids.
