Parenting Resources

A couple of months ago, I promised I'd do a post of linking up to various sites/resources I've found useful in parenting. And I was going to, but in the holiday and New Year rush, I never did, but PhDinParenting did a toddler-focused post on discipline that contained many of the links I was going to include, so I'll send you there: 3 Rs of Toddler Discipline: Repetition, Reaction, Reassurance.

One book she didn't mention, but I want to is Respectful Parents, Respeciful Kids 7 Keys to Turn Family Conflict into Cooperation, which is based on Non-Violent Communication, which I absolutely love.

I also like Teacher Tom's creative ways to handle conflict and discipline. Check out that blog sometime.

  1. I am offended—OFFENDED—you have not listed nor discussed one of the most important and deeply serious skills a parent needs: humor. To that end, I am charitably directing you to my own site and article on using stupidity to address serious issues.

  4. I love Teacher Tom. :)

    Thank you for these lovely links! I've been getting decent results as of late by focusing on empathizing and not personalizing my son's tantrums. Sometimes it's really hard, but I remind myself that I need to give him an example of how to handle difficult feelings--including the ones induced by feeling helpless or frustrated by his behavior.
