Parents often turn to parenting advice books when their own knowledge or intuition seem inadequate. Unlike earlier, prescriptive child-care guides, Trish Gribben's 1979 book Pyjamas don't matter (or: what your baby really needs), with the aid of illustrations by Dick Frizzell, took a light-hearted look at the important business of child-rearing. It acknowleged that parenting is a complicated and sometimes difficult experience.
