The parents' bookshelf

by Becky C | Aug 24, 2016
Confession:  I'm a stepmom and a relatively new one at that.  I regularly find myself asking questions like "How can I encourage our kids to try different foods?  Put their toys away when they're done playing with them?  How can I help them when they've had a fight with their best friend?"

My husband and I address these questions together, and I think we're doing a pretty good job of it, but I'm a librarian -- research is what I do.  And I've found a wealth of information on ACPL's bookshelves. 

Here's a quick look at some parenting titles recently added to our collection.  Click on a book cover to check availability — it’s as easy as that!

Parent Hacks
Two homes One Childhood
 Raising the Perfectly Imperfect Child
 Give Your Child the World
 Discipline Without Damage

What's especially wonderful is that there are a lot more titles to choose from!  I used the subject search Parenting for this post but, depending on what your focus is, you might also be interested in Child Development, Discipline of Children, or Children of Divorced Parents.

Is there a book that you've found particularly helpful?  If so, please share the author and title information in the Comments!

Becky CBecky likes to read … A LOT. When she’s not reading, she likes to pretend that she can garden. Her thumb has no hint of green whatsoever but luckily her plants are forgiving. Her favorite books are The Shannara series by Terry Brooks.
