Hi new friends,
I think I was aware of this all along, but my son is now clearly a sensitive soul with much determination and energy.
He is 11 months old.
Is there a book that can help me parent a child with this type of personality?
I am happy that I have worn him in his carrier/sling often, I think this really helps keep him calm and feeling secure. We sleepshare which I also think is good for this type of personality, but I'm not sure if there's anything else I should or shouldn't be doing...
I'd really love a book recommendation or links to articles.
Thanks in advance :) for sharing your time and wisdom.
"Unconditional Parenting" by Alfie Kohn isthe one parenting book I wish every parent would read.
Naomi Aldort's "Raising our Children, Raising Ourselves" is pretty good too.
"Parenting from the Inside Out" by Daniel Siegel is one I would recommend especially to parents who themselves who have attachement issues from the way they themselves were parented.
"Baby Hearts" by Susan Goodwyn and Linda Acredolo is a wonderful book.
