Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me? is a collection of stories from parents that speak the truth about parenting. Unlike other books on parenting, this is not another prescriptive book by an ‘expert’. Parents have read and spoken to all manner of experts and put their advice into practice with varying degrees of success. Throw in plenty of day-in-day-out experience, and here is the unique source of wisdom and truth that is harvested in Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me?
In this book, parents share their stories on topics ranging from conception and birth, through to the transition to parenthood and beyond. Woven between the stories are tips, tricks and advice from parents, as well as scientific, evidence-based information referred to in the stories. The advice, approaches and information shares in the book are there for the taking but equally can be ignored if they do not fit.
Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me? does not promote any particular style of parenting. The book is not intended to convert anyone's beliefs, nor does it have a hidden agenda. What the book simply endeavours to do is to share honest and detailed accounts of how women and men in the new millennium are parenting.
