9780060828264: Miss Poppy's Guide to Raising Perfectly Happy Children

Beleaguered parents and frenzied nannies -- your call for help has been answered. Starting at six months and going up to five years, Miss Poppy (aka Elaine Addison) brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the table, having been a professional nurse for eighteen years, including tenures with celebrities like Caroline Kennedy and Kathleen Turner. Covering all the core areas parents have to contend with -- establishing sleep routines, weaning and feeding, tantrums, and much more -- she shares many of her tips and troubleshooting techniques, including: how to make mealtimes less stressful (having the child decorate their place setting themselves); dealing with tantrums (never try to reason with a 2-year-old); and teaching messy children how to clean up (have them clean up at the same time each day with a signature piece of music.)

The essence of Miss Poppy's message can be summed up in three words: Fun, Firm, and Fair. Her unique child care recipe is rooted in today's modern environment, yet also has a charming element of the old-fashioned nursery, allowing children and parents to enjoy one another's company to the fullest while making sure that discipline and good behavior are maintained.

Warm and loving, Miss Poppy's Guide to Raising Perfectly Happy Children shows that every child's potential can be best fulfilled in a fun-filled, but consistent, environment.
