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.

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


I have a blog.
