Current Poll: Book Topic

This post may contain affiliate links.
I have many times had readers say they would love to see a book from me. So I have been thinking about and even writing books. I am curious what you would most like to see a book on, so I started a poll with some of my ideas.

If you have and "other" topic, please comment here or on the poll results in two weeks when it is posted.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ETA: I have to comment that the CIO Bootcamp book would be a lot more involved than the post on this blog. It would have everything you needed to know. I have actually already written a rough draft of this book and it is currently over 200 pages long. Just had to mention that.

I voted for Surviving Newborn Months, but think that CIO Bootcamp should be included in that book. :)

But for sure in a suriving newborn months book, I would have a chapter on CIO--it just wouldn't be as intense as a full on CIO book.

I would be most interested in CIO bootcamp (which I voted for) but also very interested in surviving the newborn months, more than making it through the day, and discipline 101.

Angelle said...

I voted for More Than Making it Through the Day because I think a lot of moms coast through the 0-5 years but would LOVE a way to more it be more than that. I know I have loved reading your series and would love more info on it.

Val said...

CIO Bootcamp with a special section from me "Dr Mom to twins" as a feature in the back.

Laura said...

My first choice is "More than Making it Through the Day," but I would also like to read "Discipline 101."

Kristin said...

I voted for Discipline 101, but really wanted to vote for it and More than Making it Through the Day. It was really a toss up!

Marie said...

Yay! I am definitely a supporter of your book writing efforts. I voted for surviving newborn months (including CIO bootcamp), but my DD is only 9 mo and we haven't started to use all of your advice on discipline and More Than Making it Through the Day :)

Heaths said...

PLEASE write a book! :) CIO Bootcamp and Discipline 101 would be so helpful. BW discipline is a bit different because you expect more from your child and at an earlier age. I know a lot of people who don't really try to correct their 2 year olds because they don't think they understand. I would love to have a more detailed discipline/correction resource!

Kristy Powers said...

Very tough choice for me! I finally settled on Discipline 101 because I think I could use that much depth on the topic. I wanted to choose a few others, though. The siblings topic is very interesting to me and I have not been able to find a good book on that topic from ANYONE.

trishconway said...

I voted "other" because I refuse to choose - I want a book about them ALL! :-)

Maureen said...

I voted for CIO because I think people need to know how to do CIO responsibly, per that post I wrote with you. Books are big jobs. Let me know if you need any help.

ok, this was a hard pick:) I ultimately chose discipline 101 as I think that has really longterm effects...although it was a tossup with the more than making it through the day.

I liked all the ideas honestly but I don't have a newborn anymore, haha. So I thought the other ones have a longer benefit than just the newborn months (although those newborn months can seem long:). They are opposite ideas in a way (younger vs older LO's) and vote for doing all eventually, lol.

I don't know if this would fill up a whole book - but I would LOVE more information on getting a child to play independently. Especially for the mom who didn't do blanket time or playpen time with her child as a baby. Maybe a step-by-step method for each age group through the age of 5 or so. There's really nothing on the internet about it either. I have to admit, I am soooo jealous of the roomtime your children have, and I have tried multiple times to get my son to cooperate, to no avail. The only way my 3 year old will play in his room by himself is because he doesn't want his sister around to mess up his toys! And I've tried using a timer, rotating toys, rewards... he just cries the entire time. So if you're looking for ideas, please consider mine, if not for a book, then maybe a series of blog posts?!
Thanks! I love your blog!

I voted for the Newborn book because I feel there is not a lot of info out there for this age range. I felt frusterated with my first and even though I read babywise and others I needed more practical advice!

this was a hard choice though because I really would love to read more than making it 0-5! I have recomended a ton of my friends to your site and they all love it!

You were my practical advice for my newborn!!!

SAmom said...

I agree with Susan.
You should do a range of books! How would the Ezzo's feel about you writing such books?
Also - it must be very comprehensive with FAQ section or scenario sketching.
But if you write a book would we get any attention on your blog...?

Plowmanators said...

Thanks for your comments everyone!

SAmom, I will still put all the effort into the blog I do now, so no worries there :)
