I need some personal help with my parenting. I have high ideals and want to be the best parent for my children as possible. We've hit the preschool age and I find myself having little patience with normal behaviors of this age. Hitting, throwing, being loud, not sharing, etc. I've read a lot of parenting books and I understand why you should use gentle discipline, I just react in a way that I don't even understand.

I think I need some healing from my own childhood. I would like to get help through books instead of couseling. Any reccommendations?

I just responded to your other post. I have the same challenges having grown up in a family where there was violence - both verbal and physical. One thing I have found useful are the parenting cards from The Natural Child Project. They may have some other ideas/leads as well.

Peace is Every Step by Thich Nhat Hanh. Or his book ANGER.

http://www.amazon.com/Peace-Every-St.../dp/0553351397
http://www.amazon.com/Anger-Thich-Nh...973403-0657416

Both totally helped me to work toward responding more peacefully within myself when triggered by irritants and obstacles to things moving smoothly (my way).
