With the end of school in sight, parents may be feeling the need to brush up on parenting survival techniques to get them through the summer. These are two books that I’ve read this year that I’ve been telling everyone I know about.
1. Nurture Shock. This book by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman covers everything from sleep to praise to lying. Less of a self-help book, this book will challenge your paradigm on most child and parent related topics using evidence from fascinating studies.
2. No Drama Discipline. Every parent should want to read this one just based on the title. Dan Siegel’s latest book (I recommend his other books as well) gives super-practical advice on how to handle day-to-day situations with your child(ren) in an effective, connecting way that will grow them into well-adjusted, stable adults.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on them if you’ve read them (or after you read them).
