    I just finished “How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen and How to Listen So Little Kids Will Talk.” It was brilliant! A totally good mix of practical advice, communication prompts, and really wise insight. Am already testing the tips on my threenager. ;)

    Has anyone else read it?

    One of my favorite books is “Boundaries with Kids” by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend. The earlier my kids were taught boundaries the better behaved they were. Definitely recommend this book!

    I enjoyed reading Simplicty Parenting by Kim John Payne. So good to receive affirmations to decluttering toys and not having it all!

    Both are such good resources, thank you! We also love anything Alfie Kohn over here! :)

    I just finished “Digital Minimalism” by Cal Newport. I think this is one of the most important books for the world at large right now! I highly, highly recommend it. I especially think it is important for us to read as parents.

    I also just finished Digital Minimalism and it has been incredible. Such a framework shift and exactly what i needed to realize how addicted i was to my phone even when i thought i was just a “standard” user. I’m about to start the detox but even just taking Sri’s to minimize my use at key times of the day (and deleting the social apps) has made me feel so much more calm and less anxious. Now I’m reading Reclaiming Conversation by Sherry Turkle which is a branch off the same tree.

    The read aloud family by Sarah maackenenzie. I’ve been struggling to read books for adults, the only books I’ve read in the last few years have been for kids 🙈. This was the first one after a long time. I loved it, especially the chapters on creating a book club atmosphere at home.

    We’re big Playful Parenting fans in our house. It dovetails nicely with How To Talk and Simplicity Parenting, but scratches my theater kid itch.

    Educated by Tara Westover is such a gripping (intense) memoir. I finished in two days!

    I’m hoping to reread Chasing Slow and hoping to live it too!

    I’m currently in the middle of a re-read of “Now Say This: The Right Words to Solve Every Parenting Dilemma” by Heather Turgeon and Julie Wright! I love that it includes really specific “scripts” to follow for handling a HUGE variety of situations with babies and kiddos, and the information is reinforced throughout so I feel like I truly “absorb” it. It’s a favorite!

    We’ve really loved reading Danny Silk’s book, Loving Our Kids on Purpose. It’s encouraged us to get creative in the ways we shepherd and discipline our little ones :) it’s one of my new go-to gifts for new parents.
