Being a parent is not at all an easy feat. Although there are many books that discuss what parenting should be like, the mere concept of how to raise children can still be very vague for millions of parents all over the world. This is why author Jan Murray shares her professional expertise in child and family health through her book Mum, Baby & Toddler, a comprehensive literary work that contains the most important answers to the baffling encounters that parents have when it comes to dealing with their young ones.

Murray believes that a strong foundation is necessary for raising resilient children. However, with the many external and social influences in society these days, parents may tend to get overwhelmed, confused and somehow misguided. Mum, Baby & Toddler recognizes these barriers and leads parents to focus on overcoming their fears and inhibitions by showing them a holistic view of the child-rearing process, as well as real-life situations that many mothers and fathers go through.

Using her professional midwifery and child health knowledge, Murray shares how to care for a newborn and growing baby and helps parents understand how to live with and encourage an independent toddler. The author helps parents see what discipline is really for and why building relationships with babies and young children are vital for their future. Murray’s personal story woven through professional knowledge makes parenting real.

This book will be featured at the 2013 Association of College and Research Libraries Book Exhibit in Indianapolis, Ind. on March 10 – 11, 2013.
