How to Choose and Use Child Care

How to Choose and Use Child Care
Reynolds
1980

This isn’t too bad of a title, but the book is more on philosophy of what you need in child care.  The book reads as if every parent has a variety of options and an unlimited budget. There is a particular emphasis on church sponsored child care, especially for supporting spiritual development. There is also a subtle judgment about mothers that need childcare. This one is for the weeding pile.

We have featured some truly awful parenting books on this site. Anyone remember this God, The Rod, And Your Child’s Bod we featured back in 2016? You might have tried to suppress the memory. Not only is that title awful, the contents are even more frightening. Or how about this one from 2010?

Thankfully, there is an antidote to the above books.
