It’s no secret that I like books. I have tons of them. No, really, between my husband and me we truly have tons of books! As a matter of fact, before our son arrived, his room was our office and held bookshelves with some of our books. Before his arrival however, we transformed his room into a nursery and banned a slew of (my husband’s) books to our attic…bookshelves and all! Honestly, between the two of us, we could open our own library.
The issue for me is that I rarely make it through reading an entire book. Sad, but oh so true! Because the bulk of my library tends to be from the “Self-Help” category, I’m able to read a chapter here and there as I have time for it or as I’m needing help on a particular subject. This has taken a load of guilt feelings off me for having and buying so many books. I like to think of my books as “cheap therapy”.
So, I thought I’d share a few of my current favorites with you in case you too, can benefit from someone else’s wisdom in raising kids.
