Best parenting books for moms…neurotic or not

1. “How to Talk to Kids so Kids Will Listen…” by Adele Faber. As a matter of fact, anything by Faber, who I had the privilege of interviewing her a few times. More than any child expert I’ve interviewed, Faber respects and understands children.

2. “Children: The Challenge” by By Rudolf Dreikurs. Nevermind the off-putting title. Dreikurs’ books gave me the clearest road-map of how to change  my behavior with my children and have less friction.

3. “Positive Discipline” by Jane Nelson. I had my doubts before reading it since I think, too often, “discipline” is a euphemism for “punishment.”  Nelson teaches to think of “discipline” as “guidance” and offers life-changing tools for creating a happy family life.
