Parenting Helps

Different Children, Different Needs – I already referenced this book in a blog called “Parenting Philosophy – Knowing”, but I thought I’d list it here, too.

The Read Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease.  This is a must read.  Must.  It talks about the importance of reading to your kids, complete with oodles of research.  It is a great resource to motivate you to have a daily reading time with your kids.  So good.

Family Fun Magazine – This was my creative Bible as the kids grew up.  There are so many great ideas that will come to your door on a monthly basis.  Their website is first-rate, too.  If you’re looking for a gift for a mom, a subscription to this magazine would be a winner.
