There’s really isn’t a “complete book of parenting” or “everything you need to know website” out there. Instead parents must chart a course of learning and practice as they encounter individual questionsandchallenges.Parenting CoursesThese classes typically draw from a parenting text as a foundation for weekly reading, discussion and home practice. Some recent texts are: Whole Brain Child (Siegel/Bryson), Easy To Love / Difficult To Discipline (Bailey), The Mindful Child (Kaiser Greenland), Parenting From the Inside Out (Siegel/Hartzell), How To Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk (Faber/Mazlish), Siblings Without Rivalry (Faber/Mazlish).
