Advice Worth Taking

prudent advice by jaime morrison curtis!

The best advice our mother ever gave us was this: Honesty is the only policy.

And so in her honor, we will be up front: The author of the book we are about to gush over is part of the DailyCandy family, L.A. Kids editor Jaime Morrison Curtis.

Morrison’s Prudent Advice: Lessons for My Baby Daughter is a collection of observations, advice, art, and poetry that began as a blog and way for her to channel her postpartum energy into something productive.

But its latest incarnation, as a perfectly packaged little Tiffany blue book, gives Curtis’s motherly pearls of wisdom new life. With a mix of practical information (while washing nice dishes and glasses, put a towel in the sink), thought-starters (if you test people, they may fail), and simple suggestions (order the local specialty), each of the 500 nuggets are reminders about the type of women we strive to be and the type of women we want to raise.

Our advice: Get one for yourself and one for a little lady you love.
