The 12 Days Til My Birthday Giveaway!

You’ve heard of the 12 days of Christmas, right? Well, this month we’re going to be counting down the 12 days until my birthday! That’s right, I’m turning a year older on September 25th, so I want to pass along the gifts to you by giving away a book a day from September 14th through September 25th. All of the books are parenting-related. Some of them are books I’ve written and some are courtesy of other parenting authors.

And I’m going to make it easy to enter. There won’t be any requests to tweet or join my Facebook page or display my button. All you’ll have to do is answer the parenting question of the day in the comments section. You get one entry per book, and I’ll randomly select a winner from the qualifying comments (i.e., those who answer the question and don’t just write, “Pick me! Pick me!”). I’ll give two days for each book/question since I know that email subscribers don’t receive notification of a post until the following day. So, for example, if I post the giveaway on September 14th, I’ll accept entries on both September 14th and 15th, and will announce the winner on the 16th.

Thank you for joining me to celebrate my birthday! I look forward to reading your insights on parenting!
