TRADE SECRETS: PARENTING is the 'Baby Bible' every parent needs to help them through the first eighteen years. This completely new book contains over 5000 hints and tips on bringing up children covering conception, pregnancy, birth, babies, toddlers, school, teenagers and, at last packing them off into life. Divided into age groups and easy-to-reference sections, over 200 key issues are covered, from fertility to food cravings, breastfeeding to bullying and smoking to sex education. Each series of tips is contributed by individuals who have a lifetime's experience in the subject including doctors, teachers, nannies, child counsellors, midwives, health visitors and, of course, parents. There are over 100 line drawings in a second colour to illustrate entries as appropriate, a comprehensive cross-referenced index and handy charts to help you find everything you need to know in seconds. Bringing up children has never been so simple!show more
