The Young Mommy Advice Files

Have you ever noticed how parenting books and resources are often assume that you're a mother with a typical nuclear family? Well, for some of us, hearing "The solution is simple! When you need a break, leave the baby with your husband or take it for a ride in your car to put him to sleep!" is just a frustration and not at all helpful (since many of us have either no husband, no car, or neither husband nor car!)! These "Advice Files" are focused on young and teen parents. That doesn't mean that your advice can't include advice for husbands, etc. and can't be useful for those who are in nuclear families. It just means that all the single mothers, the young mothers, the non-middle class mothers, and mothers living in unique family situations can find something here too! :)
