Finally did the book cull that I should have done *before* we moved, uh, six years ago. Out of all the books we read related to parenting, these are the two that influenced us most. Photo of book entitled “Becoming The Parent You Want To Be” by Laura Davis and Janis KeyserBook entitled “Feeding Your Child for Lifelong Health” by Susan B. Roberts, Ph.D., and Melvin B. Heyman, M.D., with Lisa Tracy
“Becoming The Parent You Want To Be” was ahead of its time, I think. What I loved about it is the way it presents both parents and kids as full humans, with human emotions & reactions. I have a quick temper but didn’t want to yell at my kids. I really appreciated the strategies.
I picked up “Feeding Your Child for Lifelong Health” on a bargain shelf when pregnant with kid 1. It had one key fact that influenced us: you may need to introduce a food 15-20X before they’ll take to it. So we did. There may be some luck here, too, but our kids eat *everything*.
