The Three Martini Playdate A Practical Guide to Happy Parenting review à 103 Parents were here first How did the kids suddenly take control Sure the world has changed from the days when children were supposed to be seen and not heard but things have gotten a little out of hand What about so. My full review can be found at I were to give advice for a first time mom it would beDon t listen to any advice butIf you have to listen to advice listen to mine and my advice isDon t read any parenting books butIf you have to read a parenting book read this oneWhen Girl 1 was born I read lots of Dr Sears and La Leche League and worst of all Parents magazine I went around in a sleep deprived raging hormone induced fog of Mommy Guilt If my baby wanted to suckle 247 I worried that I should nurse her 247 even though she was happy enough with the pacifier If she fussed after 5 minutes in the swing or bouncy seat maybe I wasn t holding her enough Maybe I should have given her baby massages and played This Little Piggy with her Maybe I should have carried her around in a sling all the time and it was selfish of me to want to put her down for 10 minutes here or there to make dinner or take a shower If my priorities were in place maybe I wouldn t care about such trifling matters Shame shame shame Oh how I wish I had read this book insteadThe Three Martini Playdate by Christie Mellor makes some simple points in a very humorous way Learn to say No to your child Don t allow your child to become a brat It s okay to have some time to yourself and tell your child Go Play or Go to bed Your child will be better off in the long run if you disabuse him of the notion that he is the center of the universe While you re at it teach him how to mix up a martini for you and your friends Ms Mellor is basically a funny cocktail fixated Dr DobsonThe basic premise of The Three Martini Playdate is valid at any stage you do not need to be a slave to your child to be a good parent I find this particularly compelling after reading about a study by the University of California on child rearing practices of the American middle class The study found that American middle class families tend to be child centered and raise children to be relatively dependent even when the kids have the skills to act on their own In contrast young children in other societies are expected to contribute substantially to the community which in some cultures even includes serving food to their elders and waiting to eat until their parents are finished Can you imagine Perhaps Ms Mellor is right on in suggesting that we teach our children to make us martinisIn addition to her martini tutorials Ms Mellor intersperses her child rearing wisdom with other humorous and clearly tongue in cheek asides For instance to have your cooking appreciated invite a Southern bachelor over for dinnerSouthern bachelors are ideal as they are unfailingly polite even after having polished off a third of the Maker s Mark and they are often eccentric which makes them wonderful dining companions Your bachelor may ask for seconds and even thirds He will ask of your spouse Do you always get to eat this well in that sweet little drawl He will ooh and aah and eagerly gobble up whatever you put in front of himToo funMy post here probably needs two uick disclaimersEvery child needs to know he is loved to be nurtured to feel that he is secure Far too many adults take a parents first approach too far and neglect or even abuse their children But you know what Those aren t the people who read parenting booksIf you take an attachment parenting child centric approach and it works for you that s great If there s one thing I ve learned in four years in the crazy game called parenting it s that each child and each family is uniue Some kids need chocolate covered coffee beans some need Benadryl As long as you raise your child to do their duty to God and neighbor and vote Republican kidding that s cool with meNo matter what route you take though you should read this book It will make you
