As a mother today, you're as likely as any dad to teach your kids how to pitch a tent, kick a soccer ball, or fix a broken bicycle chain. In a word, you're what your kids call cool. But with your 24/7 schedule, you can always use extra help. That's why this book was written - to give you (or any dad, grandmother, or grandfather) more Cool Mom secrets to pass along to the next generation.
Cool Mom secrets are solutions that work. They go straight to the heart of whatever problem a child might encounter to solve it quickly and effectively, no nonsense, no fuss. And at the same time the child is learning a handy new skill, he or she is also learning a deeper life lesson about perseverence, patience, honesty, or courage.
Using Cool Mom secrets, you can teach a child...How to Use ChopsticksHow to Throw a Spiral PassHow to See Better in the DarkHow to Catch a Falling StarHow to Spin a Basketball on One FingerHow to Make the World's Best Caramel CornHow to Cruise on a SkateboardHow to Identify a Poisonous SpiderHow to Hang a Spoon on Your NoseHow to Crack an Egg with One HandHow to Weigh a Cloud...and 90 other ageless, practical lessons. Years later, whenever your child uses any of these skills, he or she will proudly say, My mom taught me that. Now, is that cool, or what?
How to eat spaghetti, how to buy the right bike, and how to jump on inline skates are some of the secrets a "cool mom" knows, according to this gift book follow-up to "101 Secrets a Good Dad Knows."
