Mother’s Day is still a few months away, but it’s never too early to think of how you’ll honor and show your love for the mothers in your life. Prudent Advice: Lessons for My Baby Daughter by Jaime Morrison Curtis is a wonderful read for every mother and daughter and a fantastic gift idea for this year’s Mother’s Day.
Prudent Advice is not your typical hum-drum or overly cutesy advice book; it’s a modern advice book that delivers 500 mini lessons, covering everything a mother could hope to teach her daughter, from how to jump start a battery to advice on talking to strangers. Curtis’s writing is full of sharp wit and presents a fresh, yet heartfelt, take on parenting.
Prudent Advice goes beyond the practical, encouraging girls to live with kindness and confidence while seeing the beauty in anything and everything around them. The guide also includes poetry, inspirational quotes and recipes meant to widen a daughter’s cultural perspective and help her to grow into a well-rounded woman. This is the perfect book to read with your mother or daughter (or both!) to create stronger, fuller family bonds.
