who is ready for giveaway day vier?

Do your children suffer from the epidemic known to mothers and fathers alike as "whining"?? Do they complain about bed times? Getting up in the morning? Taking a bath? Are there days where their whining sends you running into the streets on the brink of insanity? Then do I have the book for you!!

January Jones, also know as the Whine Tester, had made it her mission to rid the world of whining, one book at a time. In her book, Thou Shalt Not Whine: The Eleventh Commandment: What We Whine About, Why We Do It and How to Stop, Jones uses humor to discuss the top ten things people and children whine about every day. She then goes one step further and offers over 100 different ways to deal with it! Jones addresses it all - from bad hair days to feeling fat - with a few slow drivers that won't merge in between.


I loved that I could relate to something in every chapter of the book. When Jones described the horror of shopping for a bathing suit as "worse then taking your mother-in-law to lunch" - she had me hooked! Don't even get me started on the chapter about Grandparents 'Top 10' whines about their children's parenting. I wanted to photo copy every page and mail it to MY parents!! (between snarkily snorting of course)

So now I am going to offer you a chance at happiness. A chance at a whine free life. In the spirit of keeping it simple all you have to do is leave a comment with your email and you will automatically be entered. I will announce the winner next Thursday! *FYI* - since the publisher will be mailing the book directly I can only extend this offer to those living in the US - sorry!

OK, I will send this to someone to someone that I know, if I get it. I don't whine, therefore my child doesn't. Seriously, think about it - if you know someone with whiney kids - look at the parents. They do the same thing.
