Having 2 kids - 6 and 3 yrs old boys, everyday is a challenge for us. As they are growing up, their behaviors change, their preferences change, they are learning and grasping so fast by observing only, they need more attention, discipline, activities to keep them engaged. They need friends to play and also need to learn how behave socially. There are so many things to raise them and give a better life.
Growing up phase is learning phase for both - parents and kids. There are lots of information in form of books, magazines, sites and blogs on parenting. I have found these 5 parenting books very good (my personal views) -
- Discipline Without Shouting or Spanking by Jerry Wyckoff & Barabara Unell
- Secret of Play by Anny Murphy
- The Ten Basic Principles of Good Parenting by Laurence Steinberg
- Parenting For Dummies by Sandra Hardin Gookin
