Shark bites, park predators, sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll! Yep, 21st century parents have plenty to worry about. Only problem, says Christie Barnes, founder of Paranoid Parents Anonymous and author of the irresistible “Paranoid Parents Guide,” is that we’re worrying about the wrong things. Contrary to popular belief, your child is not going to get bitten by a shark. Really. He’s much more likely to end up in the emergency room with a massive head injury from falling out of the grocery cart. Kidnapped? No, no, no. But while we’re worrying about fatal mishaps… how well have yo attached your tot’s car seat?
In short, the book makes for some compelling reading. So this week, we’re giving away a copy of the bright green guide, sharing our deepest, paranoid fears, and debunking a few myths, one each day. Want a copy of the book? Click “comments” and tell us, what’s your greatest fear? Sharks? Strangers? We’ll draw a winner’s name next week.
(P.S. Congrats go out to Cindi, who won the last giveaway. Cindi – that Teeny Tiny book is yours!)
