I have a client who is very interested in learning more about Connected Parenting. I am directing her to this workshop but may not be able to attend due to full time work schedule. What books should I recommend to her as an introduction to this approach??<br><br>
thanks so much for your wonderful work Lyla and Emily.

ah, there are so many good books and resources!<br><br>
the web site: <a href="http://www.connectionparenting.com/" target="_blank">http://www.connectionparenting.com/</a><br><br>
has a bunch of good articles, and there is a book by the same name/author. there is also a book list on that site that contains many of my other favorites.<br><br>
the alfie kohn dvd is a good one for those who'd rather watch a dvd than read.<br><br>
which the right book is really depends on what the main issues/challenges she is struggling with, how old her kids are, etc.<br><br>
thanks for sending her our way! perhaps she can adjust her schedule with so much advance notice...
