5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful parenting resource! Every parent
should read.

This book is such a great resource for parents with young kids. Specifically, the schedules and charts were a lifesaver for us when our baby was an infant! And now that she’s almost two, we’re learning how to effectively discipline her with the help of this book. I can’t say enough what a great resource this book has been.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great
book!!! Particularly the “Why” part

This is a fantastic resource for parents. I am a pediatrician with 25 years of experience and Dr. Trumbull has put down in words what I have been telling the parents in my practice for years. The “Why” part of the book is completely “right on”. If more parents heeded his advice we would have a much better society. I will be recommending this book to the parents in my practice…particularly the ones with young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars  What you need to know and when

August 27, 2019

Okay, first off….full disclosure. I have known the author for over a dozen years so you may consider me biased. However, I have been a pediatrician for 28 yrs. Dr. Trumbull gave me a copy to read and I devoured it. Very common sense approaches about what to do and why at various ages. I was so impressed that I bought a copy to send to my son – a pediatric resident. Every parent and pediatrician needs to read this book. Dr Trumbull is an excellent writer and has been a terrific advocate for children for many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, detailed parenting resource!

This book stands out among parenting resources. It is full of practical advice for raising children in every day situations. The wisdom and depth of experience of this author, who is a pediatrician, parent and grandparent, is apparent. While, of course, not every parent may agree with every recommendation, the book is filled with a wealth of useful tips and great advice with easily understandable background information. Many topics are covered, ranging from sleep problems to techniques of discipline to managing screen time. Highly recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read as well as reference!

December 1, 2019

A friend sent me this book during the newborn days with my first. Our routine was nonexistent, and feeding and sleeping were overwhelming. Dr. Trumbull’s book showed me not only tips for sleep and feeding during the newborn phase, but also what is reasonable to expect in all phases of my sons development. I’ve found myself reading months and years down the road to get more of his insight! I love that he reminds my rule-driven self to love on my baby and teaches me how to actually enjoy this phase. Among the MANY voices who give input into best practice, Im thankful to have a trusted voice to turn to (and I’ve already referenced this book 10+ times in the first twelve weeks!)

Great book, addresses so many challenges in the current media/technology driven world. Helps confirm what I’m doing already is correct but gives me great advise on so many things. I’m so glad I have this book and plan to keep it as a reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Any parent
NEEDS this book in their arsenal!

January 28, 2019

I can’t even begin to tell you how much this book means to me. Dr. Trumbull is a valued resource for everything from feeding to discipline. And let me tell you-that sleep schedule? PRICELESS. Before this book, his wealth of knowledge was limited to those lucky few of us who are parents of his patients. But now, with this book, his perfectly on-point advice is available to any who would take it. And you should take it. Trust me. You won’t regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wealth of Wisdom

This book is an excellent resource for parents explaining why the Authoritative style of parenting is most effective and gives many practical tips on what this actually like at different ages.
Thank you Dr. Trumbull for sharing all this wisdom!
