Read book description and reviews bellow

Parents love. Parents worry. Parenthood is a joy. It is difficult and stressful as well. How can you maximize the joy and minimize the stress? That is the goal of this book.

Giggling is perhaps the most beautiful sound in nature. It makes those who hear it smile, especially when it comes from a child. Doctors’ offices have too much crying and not enough giggling. The same is true of many homes.

“Giggle More, Worry Less” is a different kind of parenting book. It is not an encyclopedia. Instead, it focuses on important topics. I want you to understand when to worry, and when to relax. This way you can focus more time on love and having fun- giggling, as it were.

Common sense is central to my approach, and so is compassion and so is a sense of humor. You will learn "How to manipulate your mother" and that "Spit happens". Each of the topics is covered in just a few pages, so you can choose what you need, when you need it.

As a pediatrician and father for 20 years, I have learned to laugh at myself and to adapt. My approach to pediatrics is traditional. Having said that, I am willing to question whether our teaching makes sense. With experience, you learn that even absolute, official guidelines have a habit of evolving every few years. Just ask your parents- they will tell you that “everything has changed” since you were a baby.

Learning to listen is essential. Patients and parents are often trying to tell the doctor what is going on if he or she is just able to listen. The same is true for babies communicating with their parents.

This book ultimately tries to hone in on things that every parent should know. If I could sit down and share with you, this is what I would share.

I hope it helps.
