I love to learn and read about everything. I always have. It should come as no surprise that when I became a parent, I also became an avid reader of parenting books. Despite all I’ve read, I’m aware that I’ve barely even touched the surface of that vast ocean of self-help literature known as “parenting books”.
You’ll see from my ratings and reviews that I have a clear preference for kind, gentle parenting philosophies as opposed to “how-to” books that feature a series of steps to make your child behave/sleep/fill-in-the-blank. I’m sure many people will disagree with my assessments, but I hope someone finds them at least a little helpful!
