GIVEAWAY: If Your Kid Eats This Book, Everything Will Still be Okay

  Dr. Zibners covers every part of the body and offers sound advice (for example, did you know that oil is a remedy for dissolving superglue between body parts?), all the while maintaining an hilarious tone. To the question, "What if she chokes on her vomit?" Dr. Zibners answers that a healthy child  will not choke on her own vomit, unless she is "drunk or high on Grandma's sleeping pills." 


Finally, no more frantic, late-night searched through the "what to buy," "how to diaper," or "what to feed him" sections found in other childcare books to find out if little Franny needs to go to the ER. This book focuses on the essential questions, like how to keep her from electrocuting herself in the first place.

Did you know that even though your kid just took a swig of bleach, she may not have to go to she emergency room?

Don't forget to read my review of the book on my book blog, My Passion For Books, to see why this book made it's way to my best book shelf.

  1. Oh my! I've got 4 boys and I could've really used this through their early childhood (between eating calla lily leaves at a friend's home to eating puff balls on the playground) but I'd still love to read it! My contact info on my profile, thanks!

  2. For a second chance, I'll tell you about a time my son {E} went to the ER with my hubby (I stayed home with the other 3 that time). Mike is an EMT so I was sure he could handle taking {E} in for a few stitches after {E} hit his head on the rail of his bunk bed. The nurse asked Mike if he wanted to leave and the other nurse said "oh, he's an EMT, we run with him all the time, he can handle this". Mike watched, interested, as the doctor injected the local. Then as the doctor went to lace the first suture, Mike turned white as a sheet and about passed out right there in the ER! I wish I could've seen that. The nurse helped him to a chair where he could put his head between his knees and recover. {E} never flinched and handled it all like a big man! LOL

  4. I would love to win this. I really would like to give it to my "mom". She is always telling me to take my son to the ER for every little thing. Because of that I am sorta a regular at the doctor's office and children's hospital ER. I walk in the door and they automatically know who I am.

  5. On time I took my soon to be 7 year old son to the ER about 2 years ago, when he was running through the house and tripped over his feet and ended up breaking his elbow. We saw other children in there for all sorts of reason, some severe, some not so much. We came out 8 hours later with a nice shiny red cast.

  12. Oh goodness it was really scary. My daughter triped and fell face first into the corner of the cable box, she cut herself pretty bad... the blood.... But she was such a trooper, my husband was freaking out as was I she was the most calm person in the house. But after the emergentcy room vist we where all fine. She is such a trooper!

  13. I need this book! I do not have any scary stories (yet) as my 1st child is only 4 1/2 months. I am still in the new mom freak out stagewhere I worry that every little sneeze or cough is the Swine Flu. Ok, just kidding about the Swine flu but you know what I mean. At the tiniest noise coming through the monitor, I am jumping out of bed to check on her. I worry even if she is too quiet. I have not had a full nights sleep since I brought her home from the hospital. Man I am tired! I hope this book will alleviate some of my fears and relax me enough to sleep at night!

  16. This is a great giveaway! I am always a worry wort, and when I was a kid I was constantly looking things up in my mom's first-aid book and "diagnosing" my little brother's ailments. Lol.

  17. does it answer questions like what if my child starts using a couple naughty words and you need to disguise them or distract them from using those words?!

    looks like a helpful book I would put to use.

  19. This book sounds perfect for my family! I'd love to win since my dh and I often wonder what to do with our kids. I've worked in public schools, but my kids never cease to amaze me with the new symptoms, etc. they come up with!

  20. Two weeks ago, my 3 month old developed a high fever so I called the doctor's office to get an appointment and to find out how much baby tylenol I could give him in the meantime. Well, the nurse on the phone had us go straight to the ER. It was a nice pediatric-only ER, but it was still nerve-wracking to see our little guy getting poked & prodded for blood & urine tests. All the while, he's happy and smiling at the doctors and nurses. He was discharged a few hours later with "Fever of Unknown Origin," which means just a little virus! Wondering what he'll come up with next.
