Drawing on the wealth of material on the Mumsnet website, this guide presents the collected wisdom of real parents who have been through it all and survived to pass on their experience to others. There are a lot of guides on the market, but they are usually the thoughts and opinions of a single, usually, expert person. How do you choose between the often contradictory advice of the many experts in the field? The anwser? If you could you would ask other parents what worked for them. Each chapter contains a distillation of the best postings submitted by thousands of the site's users, punctuated by fact boxes, tips and summaries of what the "real" experts have to say.
