Here is some info about the book, Cow Sense for Parents.
Back jacket blurb
“When my kids become wild and unruly, I use a nice, safe playpen. When they’re finished, I climb out.”
ERMA BOMBECK, author and newspaper columnist
All parents would have gone through their playpen phase, whether their little darlings are angels, devils or something in between.
Lydia Teh sure did. She has survived the harrowing years of raising four children without a maid and lives to write the tale.
During her home-making tenure, she learnt to write. Her articles have been published in newspapers, magazines and web portals. This book, her eleventh, is a compilation of her weekly column “Family Teh Time” in The Sun, which was published from 2013 to 2018.
She doesn’t profess to be a parenting expert; her writing is informed by her own experience and that of other parents. She also gleaned advice from what experts and psychologists published online.
Nevertheless, young parents will learn from this book that, with some cow sense and a good dose of humour, parenthood need not be a hair-raising experience.
