Yesterday on the subway, I saw a woman who looked like a mom, reading Whining: 3 Steps to Stop It Before the Tears and Tantrums Start. I had to laugh. Let me tell you how that would have worked in my family.
My mom would have hauled me into the bookstore, gone to the shelf where this book was, and whacked me with it. I’d be lucky if they only had it in paperback.
As for my dad, he was more of a hands-on kind of guy.
