Okay. So this might label me a nerd, but I enjoy a good parenting book. I try to glean little pearls of wisdom from each one, and work each day at being a better mother. But this is probably the best parenting book I've come across in a long time.
So for any world-weary mothers out there looking for rays of sunshine, or any fellow nerds that love parenting manuals, here's a recommendation: The Love & Logic program, by Jim Fay and associates. I actually had the pleasure of hearing him speak at a Professional Development Seminar several years ago, and found him very wise and uplifting. This month I finally picked up one of his books, and found it equally encouraging (they have a wide range of topics available, this just happened to be the one at my local library).
Parenting is hard. Raising children is not the same as it was two generations ago. But it can be rewarding.
And I can use all the extra help I can get...
