From the Prologue, I knew this book was going to be memorable. I remember how I felt when I was expecting my first baby. I felt excited, happy, apprehensive and impatient for the arrival of my baby. I like the section about Setting The Stage For Baby, it asks you to think back to when you saw your newborn's face for the first time and how you felt. My first time seeing my baby's face for the first time was one of amazement that a 6 pound 9 1/2 pound little person had come out of my body. Next came the examination to make sure he was OK, 10 fingers, 10 toes etc. It asks How Will I Know What To? Just about half the parents have asked that question. Here are more questions we as parents have asked ourselves, Do I spank my child or not, How to communicate with an infant who doesn't understand words and How to handle a defiant toddler? This book would have been so helpful to me back in 1964. The section on Nursing brought back fond memories of bonding with my baby girl that still exist to this day. She's grown and have children of her own but she's still my "baby girl." There are questions at the end of each chapter to help you along. Every new parent should have a copy of this book, it is just full of information that a new parent and a great grandma like me can use with my great grandchildren. Parents, this is a book that will show you that you are not alone and other parents are going through the same thing you are. Thanks to Jane Nelson, Cheryl Erwin and Roslyn Ann Duffy for this book, it will help many young mothers.

Make a Difference During the Most Important Years of Your Child's Life
The months leading up to the birth of a child are filed with joy, dreams, plans—and a few worries. As a caring parent, you want to start your child out in life on the proper foundation. But where do you go for the answers to such questions as: How do I communicate with an infant who doesn't understand words? How can I effectively teach boundaries to my toddler? Should I ever spank my child?

Over the years, millions of parents just like you have come to trust Jane Nelsen's classic Positive Discipline series. These books offer a commonsense approach to child-rearing that so often is lacking in today's world. In Positive Discipline: The First Three Years, you'll learn how to use kind but firm support to raise a child who is both capable and confident. You'll find practical solutions and solid advice on how to:

•Encourage independence and exploration while providing appropriate boundaries
•Use non-punitive methods to instill valuable social skills and positive behavior inside and outside the home
•Recognize when your child is ready to master the challenges of sleeping, eating, and potty training, and how to avoid the power struggles that often come with those lessons
•Identify your child's temperament
•Understand what the latest research in brain development tells us about raising healthy children
•And much, much more!

Containing real-life examples of challenges other parents and caregivers have faced, Positive Discipline: The First Three Years is the one book that no parent should be without.
