Feeling like you might be on the verge of a green Mom’s nervous breakdown? Well, I’ve got a book for you! Spit That Out! The Overly Informed Parent’s Guide to Raising Children in the age of Environmental Guilt by Paige Wolf is perfect for parents who have become downright neurotic about the “right way” to feed, clothe and care for their little ones and who are living their lives wracked with endless eco-guilt.
As a new mother herself, Paige experienced the flood of constantly changing, oftentimes conflicting information about environmental toxins, our environmental footprints and the health risks of products we use every day. Spit That Out helps parents wade through the confusion and make reasonable decisions based on the best facts available.
Written with a dose of good humor and loaded with advice from all different kinds of Moms, the book covers the basics like eating, clothing, cleaning, pampering and playing. It also delves into age-old debates like breast vs. bottle and cloth vs. disposable with an emphasis on making the choice that is best for you.
Each chapter ends with a set of Green Mom Sanity Tips – something I will refer to frequently – especially when I feel one of those green Mom’s nervous breakdowns coming on. 🙂
