is what I said to the check-out lady at the library. I went in to borrow Siblings Without Rivalry because I’m at my wit’s end trying to figure out how to make our home look more like a family and less like an MMA match. When L goes around scratching Mister’s eyes out just for fun, I know I need help.
More than I thought, apparently, once I got to the stacks. Your Kids Are Your Own Fault. Parenting the Strong-Willed Child. The Trouble With Boys. Spoiled Rotten: American Children and How To Change Them.
So after a few frantic seconds I grabbed:
The Highly Sensitive Child (excellent read and fits Mister pefectly)
Positive Discipline A-Z (it had pretty, friendly colors)
Playful Parenting (the boys call me uptight: “mean”)
Raising Your Gifted Child ( because I don’t want to ruin him)
Don’t worry, she assured me. You have ’em for three weeks, and you can renew them up to three times online. Which is exactly what I plan to do.Comment with any other book suggestions!
