If you’re like us, and we suspect you are, you are often paralyzed by all the new information out there about the dangers of modern life for our children. With new studies all the time showing the hazards of chemicals, food contamination, and environmental factors, it can be overwhelming trying to make the right choices for your family. Paige Wolf feels your pain. Her new book attempts to guide parents through the labyrinth of data so you can feel secure about your family’s health and well-being.

Spit That Out: The Overly Informed Parent’s Guide to Raising Children in the Age of Environmental Guilt covers all the hot button issues. Wolf, a green living expert and journalist, discusses the “clean, green family diet,” toxic toys, natural remedies, and media, among other things. There’s even a chapter on managing relationships with family and friends who don’t support your “green” point of view.

Best of all, the entire book is aimed at reducing your stress over the challenges we face as parents. Wolf offers practical suggestions for both managing your house and managing your emotions when you feel overwhelmed.

Spit that Out! is available for $13.95 at Amazon.
