OK Perry,
I am having difficulty getting out of your website to finish my Spark people activities. I got side tracked by your artice "Am I Making a Boy Out of My Girl?"

Everyone else,
If you have kids, or grandkids or love a child, I highly recommend checking out Perry's website.

My kids survived me because of Dr. Spock. I read his parenting book on a daily basis. Then I would ask Mom if she thought he was right.

Thanks for the tip about the new book for Dads. My son and his wife are having their second baby this summer. It wouldn't hurt DS to brush up on his skills. After all he reads all the repair/maintenance manuals on each vehicle he owns. Each child needs his or her own repair/maintenance manual too.... Right?

Never trust a pointy-eared alien for tips on parenting, that's what I say!

LOL

Seriously, no, I've never read anything by Dr. Spock.

Heyya Sparkers,

I read plenty of parenting and fatherhood books when my wife and I were pregnant. Our daughter is now almost three and, having just finished "I'm Going to Be a Dad: Now What?" I can't think of a question I've had in the last three years that the author doesn't answer somewhere in the book.

Craig Baird writes in a conversational, straight forward manner, brilliantly balancing humor and plain-spoken facts for a finished guidebook that is informative (but not scary) and thoughtful (but not touchy-feely.)

This book is a step-by-step blueprint for any guys asking, “Now what?”

As the author says, "Fatherhood is a gift handed to us from God." I would add that "I'm Going to Be a Dad: Now What?" is a great guidebook for any father preparing to accept that gift.

Read the full book review here: tinyurl.com/yg7auk2

Thanks again,

-Perry
