"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 also crazy about that classic in child development, How Children Learn by John Holt. It reads like a journal and is such an amusing, yet informative read.

I am sorry to say I have not yet the strength to put these two books up for sale with my other used books.
