You know how when you’re thinking of something and then suddenly everything seems to point to that same thing and it all just fits? That’s how I feel these books/sites have been – they all advocate parenting successfully with empathy and connection.
One amazing website that has been invaluable has been Aha Parenting – I signed up for the e-mails as well and often receive one just when I desperately need it. Like this one for example that came today, just when I feel like I’m the end of a very short string of patience:http://www.ahaparenting.com/_blog/Parenting_Blog/post/How_to_Avoid_Power_Struggle_with_Child/
The one thing I have sadly noted is how easy it is to slip into old habits and how regularly I need these reminders… So have liked it on FB too to make sure I get them 😉
