Best of the Bunch: February 2017

Today I'm sharing the best book I read in February.

February was one of the better reading months I'd had in a while, with three 4.5-star books (two of which were rereads) and one 5-star book! That one, the best of the bunch, was...

I'd read and loved Liberated Parents, Liberated Children and How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk before I actually had a kid, but I knew that I needed to revisit the tips now that I was a parent. Co-authored by the daughter of one of the original books' authors, How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen focuses on applying the core parenting principles to kids ages 2 to 7. Faber and King remind the reader frequently that even though using these strategies takes more creativity, more forethought, and more energy upfront, they're ultimately going to save you time and energy because daily tasks won't be such a battle, and everyone will also be happier. Not to mention, you're equipping your children with the tools to be able to handle their emotions and solve problems as they grow older, which is really what parenting should be about. Definitely recommended.
