Becoming a parent brings on a whole new world of things to give thought to. Beyond the daily life changes (showering becomes optional in those early days, it seems), there are also the bigger picture issues to consider. Jennifer Taggart has put together a great resource in Smart Mama’s Green Guide: Simple Steps to Reduce Your Child’s Toxic Chemical Exposure, especially considering how confusing all the information out there can be.
With chapters focusing on certain home areas such as the kitchen, the nursery, and the bathroom, Taggart gathers and deciphers what is known about the toxicity of the available products that may very well be a regular part of your life. Other chapters give attention to the governmental agencies that are commissioned with overseeing the regulation of the vast amount of chemicals that are all around us, as well as giving wise advice in regards to lead and pesticide exposure.
We all want the best for our children, and with this book we’re equipped with a collection of information that can help us to judge what types of products we want our children exposed to, and which we’d rather steer clear of.
Does this sound like a resource guide you just have to have?
