Parents Digest Subscription Giveaway

Remember way back when I reviewed a book called “The Happiest Toddler on the Block“?  If you weren’t with us back then, you won’t recall how I liked the basic premise behind the book and found it had some good pointers, but I felt it was stretched to fill up the pages for a hungry publisher, resulting in overwhelming the parent.  When you have a toddler that needs help – ahem – being happy, you probably don’t have time to push through 200 pages of text to figure out whether or not a particular system will work for you and yours.  For this very reason, I became intrigued when I heard about Parents Digest.  

Parents Digest takes all the latest and greatest of parenting books and crunches it down for you in a very simple easy-on-the-eyes PDF format.  You get all the meat of the book without the fluff and fat.  If you feel you want to delve in further, you already know the book is worth the bucks.  The PDFs are clean and attractive to look at, and if you’re not a totally obsessive reader like me (I can’t even pass the opportunity to read the back of a cereal box), you’ll find their visuals very helpful in grabbing the concepts quickly. 

Two books I checked out recently were “Healthy Sleep Habits, Healthy Child” by Marc Weissbluth M.D. and “Louder than Words” by Jenny McCarthy.  Both summaries were well done and easy to follow.  I was able to get my finger on the pulse of each book and snag the best bits of info.  Naturally, I went straight for their Health & Wellbeing section!  So many books I’ve been hankering to look into, and now I’ve got the chance.  You can too because Parents Digest is giving away a one-year subscription!  In the meantime, feel free to try out two free Parents Digest summaries.

  1. I’d like to try “Positive Discipline for Preschoolers” and “I Want It Now”. There were many others that looked good, but those were the two the might help me the most right now with my two little boys! I have a couple of parenting books, but I often feel overwhelmed by filler and sections that don’t apply to me – this site looks like a great fix for that! Thanks

  2. I love the idea of this site! I’m a real ‘researcher’ when it comes to anything in life, so I read a lot of parenting books when my son was little. But now he’s 31 months old, my daughter is 15 months old, and I’m due with baby #3 in a few weeks – so now I don’t have time to read the full book anymore!! This would be great for me! (I could especially use some help in the discipline area, such as the Positive Discipline for Preschoolers book – the children are starting to fight and sometimes I feel like I’m losing it.) Thanks!

  3. postpartum depression, just take a bite and how to talk to your child about sex..and babyproofing your marriage

  4. “How to talk so kids will listen and how to listen so kids will talk”.. wonderful giveaway, thank you so much. and thank you for the relaxing white noise. very nice touch!

  5. i’d really like to try the happiest toddler on the block and kids, parents, and power struggles in order to retain my sanity

  6. The Happiest Toddler On The Block is a book my daughter could really use. My 2 year old granddaughter is now going through her terrible 2’s
    and this should really help.Then I’m sure Positive
    Discipline for Preschoolers wouldn’t hurt to have on hand also.

  7. I’d love to read the book Everyday Traditions. I like to make my family life and time together more memorable. Thanks.

  8. I like the fact they summarize books… I have no time to read a full book… ever
    Now I need to find a site that’ll take 2 hour movies and make them 10 minutes, actually I need a site that’ll take everything I do each day and digest it to take 1/2 the time, it’d be like having 50 hours in a day!

  9. “How to talk so kids will listen and how to listen so kids will talk”. looks so interesting

  10. I can vouch for the genius of Happiest Baby on the Block. I have the book and the dvd, and I was desperate before I found the method. I recently gave birth to a very high-needs, demanding baby, and the 5 S’s saved us and our little one.

    So of course I plan on trying Happiest Toddler on the Block as well! But will I have time to read the entire book? Probably not. So I’m thrilled you’ve introduced us to Parents Digest. Brilliant idea!

    I’m interested in many of the books, but one that caught my eye is entitled, Einstein Never Used Flashcards.

    elainas last blog post..Mommie Daze Giveaway

  11. Endangered Minds is something I would like to read more about. Oh, wait…it’s not referring to my own mind at the end of a day with two small children. Nevertheless, it looks quite interesting. 😉

  12. with my oldest turning into a teenager I need “How to talk so kids will listen and how to listen so kids will talk”

    he use to tell us everything, even if we did not want to know, now we know nothing.

  13. I’d like to read “The Happiest Toddler on the Block” and “How to Talk So Kids Will Listen And How to Listen So Kids Will Talk.” These both sound like very informative and important books.

    Thanks so much!!

  14. I’ve made it part way through _How to talk so Your Kids Will Listen…._ and thought after a not-so-pleasant interaction with my daughter this morning that maybe I better pick it up again. 😉

    Growing up Green would be my second choice. We’re continually making choices as a family (yup, that organic bill is getting higher…and who knew how crunchy I’d become post-kid?) and any help we can get would be great!


    ps–not sure you need to know this here as I presume it’s in a file somewhere, but I’m a subscriber.
