Well, the website that I was doing this challenge on has disappeared a while ago, but I’m still going to try to read 6 to 8 parenting books anyways. Because while I like reading, these challenges really push me to make time for it. They also get me reading perhaps some new and different books that I may not have read before. Today that book is Positive Discipline: The First Three Years by Jane Nelsen.

Positive Discipline: The First Three Years by Jane Nelsen

So, this is the fourth book I am blogging about. I actually read 3 other parenting books before this one, so technically I’m done. Those three, however, I did not feel were worthy of being blogged about. They weren’t very good books and I disagreed with too much of them to make the cut. So because part of this is blogging about them, I’m going to read two other books to make it to the 6 to 8 range. Just not right now. Right now I’m reading The Fever Code which I’ve had on hold for 3 weeks and finally came in yesterday.

So this book I am blogging about today: Positive Discipline: The First Three Years by Jane Nelsen was a pretty decent book. I can’t say I agree with everything in the book, but it did have a lot of decent suggestions. The tone was pretty good, as well. Some parenting books, the tone can definitely feel shaming. It is an RIE book. I always feel like sometimes it’s hard to tell from covers and descriptions what the book is about, so I thought I would throw that out there. I don’t ascribe to any one parenting philosophy anymore, but some of you might and I thought you might like to know. Overall, I’d give this book a solid 3.5 stars. Though to be honest, it’s been a few weeks and I don’t remember tons from the book, so it may be better as a reference book than something you’ll read once and commit to memory forever.

So, that’s what parenting books I’ve been reading lately. Have you read anything good lately, parenting related or otherwise?
