Anyone else read parts of parenting books and cringe and say whoops.
I know not everyone needs guidance, but in certain parts of parenting (mainly getting my kids to eat) I look to parenting guide books and professionals etc to help me! Problem is I read these books and half the time I just feel like I'm having to say 'well my family is scre.w.ed'
I know 'they' say you need to show a toddler a food 10-20 times before he'll try it. No ****...
What if I'm on my 59th try in 2 years and it's still a nose thumb...
Same with parents still trying to get their kids to bed easily at 7pm four years on, thankfully that is not an issue in this house, we have others
My point is ... Where is the advice that says yep you stuffed up, or yep not the best choices there mum, but try this!
So screw you 'more peas please' and 'just try it you might like it' and 'gina ford potty training in one weekend' where is your advice where it's really needed - for the parent of veggie haters, nappy persistent toddlers, sleep adverse babies etc etc etc
