We all wish there was a manual that comes with our babies right. Well, we have a lot of tools and research that has gone into parenting. Reading parenting books is a great way to be more deliberate with the way we act with our children. After all, we kind of create their whole world to start with. I wanted to share some of the books I’ve read that have changed the way I parent and act with my kids.
Raising an emotionally intelligent Child by Dr. John Gottman
This book is intense but I love it because it provides tools to help children cope with their emotions. (which are behind their actions) It taught me how to teach my child how to be emotionally intelligent.
Love and Logic
Love and logic provides an excellent toolkit to deal with the day to day misbehaviors and teaching responsibility and self motivation to our kids.
Mindful discipline goes right along with “raising and emotionally intelligent child. It is a little easier to read though.
Ever worry about sibling rivalry. This book is helping me view my kids in a perspective that i can raise them to love each other!
