Trees Make the Best Mobiles: Simple Ways to Raise Your Child in a Complex World : Trees Make the Best Mobiles helps parents learn to do less, listen more, and spend focused, fruitful time with their children. Practical and fun to read, the book urges parents to treat every task - even diapering and feeding - as a chance to connect with their child. The short chapters give calming advice about hot-button issues, from pacifier use to sharing, television viewing to tantrums. Parents will be relieved to find that they don't have to buy lots of stuff - a tree outside a baby's window can serve as a mobile - or shuttle kids from one activity to another. The authors believe that "being present", without resentment or distraction, is the best present any parent can give.
