Parenting books

At last week’s Back to School Night for Primary School, I discussed the author Wendy Mogul and her book, The Blessings of a Skinned Knee. As parents look for guideposts of parenting advice, this is one of my top ten. Dr. Mogul gives her readers a practical, no nonsense approach to parenting. In an age if instant gratification and a culture overly focused on results ( and sometimes the ends justifying the means), her very readable book is one I highly recommend.

Other parenting books on my list of favorites

Wendy Mogul: Blessing of a B-

Madeline Levine: The Price of Privilege

Madeline Levine: Teach Your Children Well

Michael Thompson: The Pressured Child

Rob Evans: Family Matters

Happy Reading!
