Just bought two books

I already started Barbara Coloroso's "Kids are worth it!" and I'm waiting on an order for Alfie Kohn's, "Unconditional Parenting". Anyone else read them?

Yup, have read Unconditional Parenting and love it. I refer to it quite often when parents are telling me to do time outs/spank etc. It has come in really handy to get family to understand why we do certain things with our daughter.

Happy reading Dana! Hope you will write and essay afterwards to sumurise it all and save us from having to read it ;-)

I read Barbara Coloroso when I was in my teens. I grew up listening to her tapes of her lectures because my mom was a HUGE fan of hers.
She has great ideas, philosophies and strategies for everyone in a family.
I have not heard of the other book, but I will add it to my growing "to borrow or buy" list of books.

So far I'm loving "Kids are worth it!"......granted I'm only 3 chapters in but it's totally making sense to me. It's helping me recognize what type of parent I am and where my faults might be. Can't change if we don't see the problem, right?!

No but let me know what they are like, I have never read a parenting book, am interested to hear if you like them. I am off to buy that no cry sleep solution today, so I will be busy reading myself! Hopefully I can get it in Australia!

Yep. Both my Favs. Alfie is a bit hard for most people to swallow. Barbara Coloroso is great. Lots of practical advice. I tend to agree with her on most things although I have a few parts where I disagree 100%. I think you will like Kids Are Worth It better than Unconditional. Happy Reading. If your weather is like ours, then it is a good book day. :)
