“No Bad Kids: Toddler Discipline Without Shame” and “Elevating Childcare: A Guide to Respectful Parenting” by Janet Lansbury have tremendously helped us with parenting our toddler. Janet brilliantly lays out what is developmentally appropriate at various ages so you can understand why kids do such frustrating things, how to respond to them, and how to better connect with them.


“Attachment Parenting” by Dr. William Sears and his wife, Martha, is like the attachment parenting (AP) Bible. They lay out what AP is, and how being close to our babies when they are little has so many benefits for parents and children, and actually can lead to more independence later on.



This article entitled, “7 Saintly Tips On How To Discipline A Child, from Dom Bosco” is a wonderful collection of quotes and instructions for parents and teachers from St. John Bosco, the patron saint of children. Our gentle parenting approach has been influenced by his wisdom.

“Why Are Kids Impatient, Bored, Friendless, and Entitled?” by Jacqueline at Deep Roots at Home has great insights I appreciate.

“Boundaries, Routines and Early Bedtimes: 13 Habits That Raise Well-Adjusted Kids” by Lauren Tamm over at The Military Wife and Mom is a fantastic article that really captures a lot of my sentiments about parenting.
