I really liked "How to Talk..." too and by the same authors, for parents of more than one, "Siblings Without Rivalry." In fact, judging by recent behaviors it's time for me to do a refresher read of that one.....

Hi Donna,

I haven't read that one but I read the "how to talk to teenagers will listen" version just after Gary and his son moved in with me.  Jeremy was already 16 by that time, so I don't really play a parenting role with him, but it did help me understand how to interact with him more confidently.

I'll check out the one for younger kids, too!



I really liked, "How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk". I learned so much about parenting my kids from this book. It was published in the 80s.


Oh my gosh, you just listed 3 of my favorite books! Nursing Mother's Companion, No-Cry Sleep Solution, and Toddler's Busy Book. I like your style! My baby is 9 months and I'm interested in the Baby-Led Weaning book you mentioned.

One of my other favorites include Ina May's Guide to Childbirth (for those who are pregnant, obviously).

A friend of mine has a 4 month old and she just discovered the book called "The Baby Book: Everything You Need to Know About Your Baby from Birth to Age Two", by Dr. Sears (and his wife and 2 of his kids). She said it has saved her life. It has an attachment parenting bent but seems to extremely helpful regardless of your approach to parenting. It also has lots of activity ideas for playing with your little one from birth to two, which she has really enjoyed.

So glad to have found your blog!
