About the Hush Up Series

As natural as spring follows winter, children test limits. While children try to become independent, their words and behavior often say ‘no’; your child won’t go to bed, doesn’t go along for the ride, or is having a range of mealtime and other routine behaviors.

The Hush Up Series gives parents and children a chance to laugh at themselves through the universal parent/child struggles while learning a thing or two about our natural world along the way.
