Spit That Out!: The Overly Informed Parent's Guide To Raising Children in the Age of Environmental Guilt....Review & Giveaway

Being a parent is tough isn't it?   We want only the very best for our children and now, with piles and piles of information at our fingertips you would think providing the best would be easier than ever.  Not so much.  At all.  Hello information overload!  It seems like there is a daily dose of eat this not that followed by an "uh-oh, don't really eat that eat this".  What's a parent to do?  Start by reading Spit That Out!:  The Overly Informed Parent's Guide to Raising Children in the Age of Environmental Guilt by Paige Wolf.

Have you ever stayed up all night scraping lead paint off the walls (and then realized you've actually made the problem worse)? Googled every toy in the house to make sure they didn't contain high levels of cadmium or lead? Searched every product in the cabinet for the mere mention of a paraben? As a new mother, Paige Wolf has been committed to living an eco-friendly and healthy lifestyle. But with the flood of constantly changing information, it's become an increasingly difficult task. In addition to the age-old daunting task of raising happy, healthy babies, mothers are constantly bombarded with new and contradictory research concerning environmental toxins, long-term product effects, and the far-reaching impact of every product we purchase and decision we make. Spit That Out! answers the questions posed by mothers on the verge of a "green mom nervous breakdown" and turns to experts to present facts, debunk myths, and help parents stay on a reasonable and responsible course without losing their minds. Whether they are cloth-diapering, holistic mamas or moms who still can't give up their designer duds, all modern mothers can relate to the desperation of wanting to do the best for their children - and feeling hopelessly overwhelmed in the process. Spit That Out! feeds an audience of mothers hungry for commiseration, direction, and relief.


Spit That Out! will have you laughing (Wolf had laughing at one of her very first lines describing her own parents "they wanted to rush me to the hospital every time I coughed sure I was choking on a chicken bone even though I am sure no one's ever found a bone in a McNugget"! ).  Spit That Out Will leave you sighing with  relief that you are not alone in your quest to raise happy children under overwhelming circumstances.  Spit That Out will also leave you better informed and better equipped to deal with all of this information overload.

In my opinion, Spit That Out is a must read for all parents and parents to be.  Let Paige Wold help you navigate the world of parenting with guidance on everything from breastfeeding (do you HAVE to do it?  Can you ever take an asprin again??) to television watching and buying green.  Wolf has done the research and will talk you off that parenting cliff with laughs!  Thanks for making this paranoid mama rest a little easier and providing some laughs on the way!
