Lots of good pragmatic advice. It's geared towards parents of preteens and teens but it's good advice to remember going forward. I will implement some advice, like allowing your daughter to keep her room like she wants it rather than nagging all the time to pick everything up... It's hard but there is value in allowing them individuality.

I bought this at the American Girl store. I thought this may prepare me for what will be coming in the next few years as I raise girls.
