From Bunmi Laditan, the creator of the Honest Toddler blog, The Big Bed is a humorous picture book about a girl who doesn't want to sleep in her little bed, so she presents her dad with his own bed—a camping cot!—in order to move herself into her parents' big bed in his place. A twist on the classic parental struggle of not letting kids sleep in their bed.

In Mothering through Precarity Julie A. Wilson and Emily Chivers Yochim explore how working- and middle-class mothers negotiate the difficulties of twenty-first-century mothering through their everyday engagement with digital media. From Facebook and Pinterest to couponing, health, and parenting websites, the women Wilson and Yochim study rely upon online resources and communities for material and emotional support. Feeling responsible for their family's economic security, these women often become "mamapreneurs," running side businesses out of their homes. They also feel the need to provide for their family's happiness, making successful mothering dependent upon economic and emotional labor. Questioning these standards of motherhood, Wilson and Yochim demonstrate that mothers' work is inseparable from digital media as it provides them the means for sustaining their families through such difficulties as health scares, underfunded schools, a weakening social safety net, and job losses.

Toddler a**holery is a normal part of human development--not unlike puberty, except this stage involves throwing food on the floor and taking swings at people who pay your way in life. For parents of toddlers, it's a "you better laugh so you don't cry" period. Bunmi Laditan's hilarious, satirical guide to toddlerhood offers parents instant (and very welcome) comic relief--along with the very good news that "It's Not Your Fault." Chapters cover the cost of raising a toddler, feeding your toddler, potty-training, tantrums, how to manage the holidays, and "how not to die inside." Parents will see themselves in the very funny sections on taking your toddler to restaurants ("One parent will spend their time walking your toddler around the restaurant and outside like a cocker spaniel, while the other, luckier parent will eat alone."), Things You Thought You'd Never Say That You Now Say As a Parent of a Toddler ("I can tell you're pooping because your eyes are watering."), and how to order pizza ("Spend $40 on pizza delivery. Listen to your toddler cry for 30 minutes about how the pizza is all wrong. Watch your toddler take a small bite of crust. Google 'can anger give you a heart attack?' Start the bedtime routine."). Laditan's wildly funny voice has attracted hundreds of thousands of fans of Honest Toddler on social media; here she speaks parent-to-tired-parent, easing the pains and challenges of raising toddlers with a hefty dose of adult humor and wit.

From the very first moment they are born into your arms, they instantly become the cherished apple of your eyes, and you would do anything for them. As much as you love them and would give the world to them, let's be honest, raising a child is no quick walk in the park... There will be times of conflicts, difficulties, and tensions along the way - not to mention those rebellious streak of teen years. Driven by the need to get whatever they want whenever they want and the need to fit in and be cool and popular, then playing the guilt card and blaming you for not loving them enough for not giving in to their demands, can wreck havoc on any parent's nerve. You can blame it on pop cultures, but remember...you, as a parent, need to be their GPS (guided parental system) guiding them in a world that they think they're know it all, into well-respected successful individual and good outstanding citizen. Now what parent wouldn't want that? That is the biggest priority of a parent and the biggest prize you can offer to your kid(s). They need you to! Within "Instant Parenting": * How to be a good parent by adopting the fundamental "6 Golden Rules" of parenting to raising children more easily and guiding them through life. * How to apply the "art of codependent parenting" where you and your child both have mutual respects and need each other for survival as one form of parenting styles. * How to improve interactions with your children by working on your "parental communication skills" so they will always respect and listen to you. * How to manage yourself and your kids when they have done something wrong against your wishes and everything you've taught them, leading to arguments. * How to get your kids on your side, by being ON their side, so they will always let you in on their life without hiding any secrecy, but always want you in on their life. * Plus, custom practical "how-to" strategies, techniques, applications and exercises for better parenting skills for raising kids better. ...and much more. Parenting should be a privilege to shape your children into the molding image of your lasting legacy for future generations to come; and you only have a limited time to do that for they do grow up so fast. Don't let this one-time parenting opportunity to enjoy the good times (and even the bad times) to raise your kid(s) into who they will be, before it slips you by!

Bringing up children is one of the most difficult tasks in the world - and potentially one of the most rewarding. Loving and conveying love may seem to be instinctive skills, but they can also be worked on and improved, and it is now established that parenting is not necessarily an inherent talent, but is something that can be learned. Parents need no longer feel guilty, incompetent or useless when family relationships aren't what they should be - nor do children have to feel unloved, ignored or misunderstood. Good parenting skills, learned now, will be absorbed by the next generation, thus breaking the vicious cycle that can degenerate from toddler tantrums via teenage delinquency to adult crime and yet more unhappy families. In her work as a clinical psychologist with families from many cultures, Sue Jenner has experienced great success with the technique known to psychologists as the 'Parent/Child Game'. This is the first book to present this technique to a non-academic readership. The simple but incredibly effective principles of the 'Parent/Child Game' form the backbone of this guide, which is written with honesty, compassion and humour. Drawing on many years of professional practice, as well as 'hands on' experience as a mother, stepmother and grandmother, Sue points the way to a happier life for both parents and children.
