Hunt Gather Parent Book Cover

Hunt, Gather, Parent

Posted in , ,

I enjoyed this book and there were a number of good nuggets of information in this book. One of my favorite quotes is “If a parent doesn’t demand and control a child’s attention then a child doesn’t demand and control the parent’s attention.” Multiple times helpful ideas were undermined by going too far or twisting…

Art of Roughhousing

Posted in , , , ,

This is one of my favorite books for active hands-on suggestions. The Art of Roughhousing can be read start to finish or used for reference to pull little pieces from here or there. The author’s articulate the importance of tough and tumble or big body play so well. I felt like I walked away with…

The Discontented Little Baby Book

As a RIE inspired early educator I was intrigued by “The Discontented Little Baby Book” because of the way it challenges some of the ideas while mirroring others.

“I Love You Rituals” is one of our favorite Dr. Becky Bailey books. It highlights the importance of joy time, shared attention, physical touch and one on one time with young children. This is a great resource for families or teachers who want to build more tools for connection. Don’t expect something comprehensive it is…

No-Drama Discipline

“No-Drama Discipline” is a great read. Some of the wording is different than what we use at Our Neighborhood but the ideas are very respectful and the brain research backing up this more peaceful approach is clearly explained. The book is funny and quick with lots of practical advice for parents. You won’t come away…

The best resource for a growing family. First time parents are taking in a lot of information to prepare for their new role and it will still always throw you for a loop. No matter if your first born was easy, challenging, in a groove or out of control adding a sibling will always be…
