I just read "How to Talk to Kids..." and LOVED it. I'm trying to read "Kids are Worth It" and like the phylosophy of course, but feel like I need more details...<br><br>
Is there a GD book that focuses on very young children? D is 2.5yo and I have a hard time figuring out how to apply some stuff and make it age appropriate.<br><br>
Thanks!!

Becoming the Parent You Want To Be. A fantastic book for kids under 5. I would have been lost without it!<br>
(the discipline part is only a few chapters, but I've not seen that same info in any other discipline book. I got it out of my library, and loved it so much that I bought my own copy of it.)

I'm reading "Adventures in Gentle Discipline" by Hilary Flower. It has good advice for dealing with children of all ages i.e. expecting age appropriate behaviour

I've browsed through Dr. Sears' discipline book and gleaned some good tips and advice from it. His 'Baby Book' was a great resource for me from the time dd was born to about 18 mos. and the 'Discipline Book' kind of picks up from there as far as how AP becomes your discipline technique as well.

I think maybe "Kids, Parents, and Power Struggles" could help. It was helpful to me when dealing with my kids at age 3, which is pretty close to where you are.

There's a book called "Parenting with Purpose" by Lynda Madison that focuses on 1, 2, 3 and 4 year olds. I liked it a lot for the 1-3 range.

Raising Our Childen, Raising Ourselves, Naomi Aldort<br><br>
Playful Parenting, L. Cohen<br><br>
Both share excellent ways in which to connect and nurture attachment by meeting children where they live (play), and much much more wonderful insights and advice.<br><br>
