The Best Parenting Books
a book list by Karen Kennedy, mother of two
shelved under Parenting
As the mother of two boys and an avid reader, I've read a lot of parenting books. Many have some useful ideas, but I've found the six below truly indispensable and therefore, in my finite wisdom, I deem them the 6 Best Parenting Books. (Or, at least the best parenting books I've come across in my fairly extensive reading on the subject.)
All six books not only contain great practical advice, but also strike deeper truths about kids and parenting. Three of the books are about general parenting issues; the other three are about three subjects that loom large for many parents: sleep, eating, and sibling rivalry.
