anyone want to start a gd book club for 2011? - Page 2

post #21 of 26
Thread Starter 

ok... let's put unconditional parenting as book #2 and some version of love and logic (can someone suggest a particular version?) for #3 and then add the others in the order I saw them mentioned - just say the word if you want a particular one sooner.  Maybe I'll start a new thread for the official bookclub and save the first few posts...

 

post #1 intro including what book we are currently reading and our booklist

post#2 rollcall?  giving a quick summary of who's reading and how old their kids are and any other info you want to include

post#3 just in case someone can think of something else?

 

So I'll have the new thread up by Monday 1/10 and we can start introducing ourselves  (maybe put the stuff you want me to put in post#2 in red or some other color so its easy to spot)...  I plan to read 1 chapter per week and really put that idea into practice and I'll post a quick summary every monday so even if you don't have the book you can follow along??

 

What do ya think?

Sounds good to me. I can't wait to read this book, but both copies are checked out at the library. I'm ordering it from amazon because I think it's one I'll want to refer to often as DD2 grows.

OK, I'll confess up front that I don't have time to be part of the club, so I'll probably be a lurker.  I wanted to add my favorite books for your consideration:

 

Playful Parenting by Larry Cohen - hands down the book that I use the most when I parent.

Kids, Parents & Power Struggles by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka

Becoming the Parent You Want To Be by Laura Davis & Janis Keyser

 

FWIW, I personally wouldn't include a Love & Logic book. I don't find Love & Logic to be very consistent with AP. If you want a book that would also appeal to people doing more mainstream parenting, but still GD, then I'd recommend the Positive Discipline books by Jane Nelsen.

when i was at the library yesterday picking up a copy of easy to love difficult to discipline, i saw playful parenting and flipped through it.  looked interesting.  good to see a recommendation for it.  i will probably pick it up next time (and, yes, let's add it to the list).

 

i also love becoming the parent you want to be.  i think it's the first parenting book i read.  let's add that one too.
 

thanks lynn!
