How does one raise a prince and princess? Well, Kate Middleton gave the world a peek into her parenting style when she sent a letter to the author of The Modern Mother’s Handbook: How to Raise a Happy, Healthy, Smart, Disciplined and Interesting Child, Starting from Birth telling her how much she loved the book. The anonymous author, who refers to herself as the Modern Old-Fashioned Mom, was obviously delighted that the Duchess of Cambridge is such a fan of her book. She has two kids (like Kate) and wrote the book in hopes of offering practical advice for new moms on raising kids from infancy to teens — clearly Kate is thinking ahead. There is some advice in the book that we would suggest moms ignore (you don’t have to breastfeed, like the author says), but there are a lot of good tips that are worth following.
