Spit That Out! free pdf Where can I shop for toys knowing they aren't teeming with lead paint? Are cloth diapers really doable? Will I ever find a safe, leak- and shatter-proof sippy cup? 2010's Spit That Out! The Overly Informed Parent's Guide to Raising Children in the Age of Environmental Guilt answered many of the questions posed by mothers on the verge of a "green mom nervous breakdown." But when it comes to new studies, new worries, and new resources for greener parenting, it can be a daily struggle to keep up. Over the past year, Paige Wolf has used her blog and social media to engage readers and experts, answering questions on everything from leaching plastics and phony farm stands to organic dairy discounts. The updated edition of Spit That Out includes new information and insights on some of the past year's personal and universal developments. In the current edition, you will find the story of Paige's transition to cloth diapers, an updated discussion of plastics, and a comprehensive list of hand-picked resources to make green living more practical, manageable, and affordable. As a new mother, Paige Wolf has been committed to living an eco-friendly and healthy lifestyle. And as an advocate for green living and owner of an eco-friendly public relations company, it has been especially important for her to "walk the walk" and be especially conscious of her choices. But with the flood of constantly changing information, it can become an increasingly impossible task. Parents in the 21st century have to deal with myriad concerns and information overload, the likes of which past generations never imagined. In addition to the age-old daunting task of raising happy, healthy babies, we are constantly bombarded with new and contradictory research concerning environmental toxins, long-term product effects, and the far-reaching impact of every product we purchase and decision we make. Spit That Out! turns to experts in pediatrics, environmental advocacy, science, holistic health, and humanitarianism to present facts, debunk myths, and help parents stay on a reasonable and responsible course without losing their minds. The mothers themselves also offer anecdotes and advice on staying sane in an ever-changing landscape of conscientious parenting. Chapters include "Green Mom Sanity Tips," "Dollar-Savvy Sustainability Tips," and "Parent-to-Parent Pointers" from real moms who have been in the trenches of eco-anxiety. Real moms confess "eco-sins" and share solutions to everyday dilemmas. In addition to "everyday moms," comedians, authors, and actresses like Tammy Pescatelli, star of WE TV's "A Stand Up Mother"- Lisa Landry from Comedy Central's "Standup Showdown"- "Orange is the New Black" actress Alysia Reiner- Amy Wilson, actress and author of When Did I Get Like This?- Vicki Glembocki, author of The Second Nine Months- and Abby Sher, author of Amen, Amen, Amen: Memoir of a Girl Who Couldn't Stop Praying (Among Other Things) find humor in the journey from overwhelming madness to solace and sanity. Whether they are cloth-diapering, holistic mamas or moms who still can't give up their designer duds, all modern mothers can relate to the desperation of wanting to do the best for their children - and feeling hopelessly overwhelmed in the process. Spit That Out! feeds an audience of mothers hungry for commiseration, direction, and relief.
