The Longest Shortest Time


Weird Parenting Wins

The most effective parenting strategies often don’t come from gurus but from real parents getting creative in moments of desperation. One mother threatens to sing in public anytime her daughters argue; another allows her daughter to play with tampons to get a few minutes on the toilet alone. For parents and caregivers with kids of all ages, the unconventional “wins” in this book have helped children to diversify their appetites, stop sibling rivalry, cultivate independence, develop manners, and open up—as well as parents themselves to find imaginative ways of salvaging time, money, intimacy, and their sanity.
