Is there anything nicer than a great review from a expert in the field of dealing with emotions?
I’m lucky enough to be part of an amazing group of women as a contributor to 30 Second Mom. I found many other moms running their own businesses, writing books and dealing with grumpy kids! Dr. Christina Hibbert, a psychologist focusing on women’s health, postpartum health, and parenting issues. Her post on handling whining really hit home with me. She was kind enough to review a copy of The Bumpy, Grumpy Road and sent me her thoughts:
“The Bumpy, Grumpy Road is an adorable book that will help children of all ages learn to navigate feelings of anger, frustration, sibling rivalry, and plain old grumpiness. It not only entertains, it teaches practical skills children can apply to help them overcome their “big feelings” and find their way back to the “smooth path” of sharing, caring, and feeling happy again. I will read the book to my younger kids. I particularly loved your “signs”–what a great way to teach kids how to stop and change their behavior. A really great idea!”
Thanks Dr. Hibbert!
My four year old has loved tofu and beets since he first started eating them before a year old. That did lead to some panic when changing the first diaper, however!
