Parenting is the most difficult yet most rewarding job I’ve ever had! I always knew it would be difficult but I had no clue how difficult. Thankfully, I also had no idea how wonderful and meaningful it would be.

From the time I was pregnant with my first child, I read books about parenting and raising children. And what I learned was invaluable! I can’t imagine how things might have turned out for our little family if I had not studied these books and put the techniques into practice.

Sometimes I read books to learn about specific issues we were facing and other times I chose books to learn general parenting techniques for raising responsible, self-sufficient, caring individuals who will someday make a great contribution to society.

I recommend many great books on the Resources page. Take a look through the titles and see what may apply to you in the phase of parenting your are currently living.

If you have a situation and you don’t want to read a whole book to figure out what you might do, send me an email and maybe I will have already experienced that situation and have some advice. Or maybe I can tell you THE perfect book that you shouldn’t live without.

Happy reading parents! Invest time in your kids. Parenting is the most important job you will ever have so take time and learn how to do the job well!
