This book is a wonderful gift for a new parent as well as a not-so-new parent. There is something here from baby to teenager. Some of the subjects include; crying babies on airplanes, hearing, vision, baby food, bed wetting, temper tantrums, and even ideas on how to keep close to your teenager. This book is meant to be an easy listen giving insight on everyday issues that come up. It will ease some of the stress in parenting and help you in avoiding many of the mistakes I made. When my firstborn was young, I wanted him to be perfect. In trying to make him the best he could be I made at least a mistake a day – some days more. Each issue was a new challenge and I didn’t have time to read all those big parenting books. I had many “should haves”, “I wish I would haves”, and “wow I wish I had known that sooner”. I would love to hear feedback on your thoughts after listening to Your Firstborn Doesn’t Have to Be Perfect.
