If You Are a Parent You Need To Read These Books

Other families and parents out there will recommend a ton of books to you.  As a parent educator even I get tons of recommendations.  The issue with recommended reads is that they may fit a certain person, or work for a particular family, but they are not always effective for all families.  I want to list some recommendations of books that I have seen be effective with multiple families.

 

The Five Love Languages - a book that discusses that we all send and receive love in different ways.  This is written with romantic relationships in mind but I have found it to be extremely successful in working with our kids as well.  Chapman discusses how we all receive love differently.  Some feel loved when they get gifts, some when others do something meaningful for them (make them a cup of coffee or take the trash out for a person), some need physical touch, and some need to hear "I love you."  If you are trying to tell your kiddo you love them by buying them a new PlayStation, but they would rather hear how you are proud of them, then regardless of what you are trying to do, they typically do not feel loved.  This book explains all of these ideas succinctly, clearly, and is an easy read.

Suddenly They're 13: The Art of Hugging a Cactus - this book is co-written by the Arp's.  It discusses the difficulties that are often experienced by parents when their sweet snugglie kiddos turn 13 and change.  They address 4 issues in a way that quickly became one of my favorite approaches through ideas of regrouping, releasing, relating, and relaxing.  Supreme advice for those with or will have teens.  Regardless of whether you have teens or not right now, I recommend you pick up a copy of this and prepare yourself.  Even with teenagers, there are two types of people, those that are trained, and those that are not.  Which are you?

The New Strong-Willed Child - Dobson offers advice on how to work with your difficult kiddos that want to live by their own rules.  His writing style is witty, fun, and very easy to read.  It also packs a punch in good tips, tricks, and techniques.  I read his original written years ago and his new book is still the stuff that makes it effective with updated information and research...which makes me happy!
