"The best way to make children good is to make them happy" - Oscar Wilde
I can't say enough good things about Jan Hunt's book The Natural Child: Parenting from the Heart. I refer back to it time and again when I need a little centering. I especially like the lists:
- 10 Reasons to Respond to a Crying Child
- 10 Ways to Grow a Happy Child
- 10 Ways We Misunderstand Children
- 10 Alternatives to Punishment
I am sorry to say I have not yet the strength to put these two books up for sale with my other used books.
