Parent Hacks is an ingenious book loaded with practical and soon-to-be indispensable solutions to everyday problems. Asha Dornfest is the founder of the parenthacks.com blog and has corralled ideas and solutions from numerous parents. There are 134 solutions, or “hacks” divided by topics such as pregnancy, potty training, sleep, mealtime, travel, and six more much-needed sections. What makes this book even better is the graphics that accompany each hack. Each chapter is color-coded and the drawings either further explain the hack or depict the issue in a humorous manner. For example, how about cleaning those nasty sippy cup valves with denture tablets? Or using a simple trick for diapers that are too large at the time needed?
“Parent Hacks celebrates those flashes of problem-solving genius.”
Dornfest writes with a tongue-in-cheek style that makes the reader feel like parenting is a joint effort. The hacks are clearly explained and easy to understand. Parent Hacks is the perfect book for both the new parent and even the seasoned parent. Some of the hacks are absolute genius ideas while others leave the parent asking, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Either way, parents are the winners with this solution-filled, easy-to-read gem of a book!
