Sarcastic Child: 10 Positive Parenting Tips

Evan Shapiro, Licensed Clinical Psychologist. Patty Wipfler is quietly revolutionizing parenting by explaining emotions so that parents not only understand their child's behavior, but know exactly how to support their child to transform that behavior. You wouldn't think a parenting book would be a page-turner, but this one is.

Wipfler and her co-author Tosha Schore demonstrate the power of listening to children, with story after story of parents helping their child master the large and small traumas of everyday life. Every parent needs this book. In our increasingly hectic world, many parents feel too busy, stressed and distracted to teach their kids how to live healthy lives. Kristen Race shares sobering research that will motivate you to change all that. Mindful Parenting is the perfect mix of eye-opening science and practical inspiration we all need to help us slow down, model mindfulness, and stay connected as a family.

In the original printing of this book, there is a positive reference to BabyWise on page When I originally read this book and gave it a positive endorsement, I am embarrassed to say that I somehow I missed that reference. You may be aware that Babywise is controversial. But this is much more than controversy; virtually everyone I respect in the field considers Babywise to be dangerous. Even if no one else was sounding the alarm about Babywise, I would have to be guided by the American Association of Pediatrics position that Babywise can lead to failed nursing, dehydration, and failure to thrive.

When I became aware of the positive comment about BabyWise on page of this book, I immediately wrote to the author, Kristen Race, who responded by having that reference removed from all subsequent printings. Her comment:. I am embarrassed to say that I was completely unaware of this controversy This information is incredibly alarming! I will absolutely remove the reference from future printings.

I am also happy to reference the removal of the recommendation in my newsletter in the meantime. If Race were writing about babies, her ignorance on this issue would concern me. I hope you will, too. If you have a child who is "more" -- more intense, more persistent, more sensitive -- you probably already know who Mary Sheedy Kurcinka is. She wrote the book on spirited children, literally -- Raising Your Spirited Child.

The newly revised third edition is just as reassuring and eye-opening as the first edition. But it's completely rewritten and updated, with more step by step advice, concrete examples, and practical tips. Just the new chapter on helping spirited kids get to sleep will be worth the price of the book for exhausted parents.

Kurcinka's great contribution to the field is that she helps even the most frustrated parent appreciate her spirited child's strengths. In this book she takes her commitment to positive parenting a step further, giving parents the hands-on tools they need to ease the challenges of life with a spirited child, without resorting to punishment. If your child is MORE, you will love this book! If you've been nursing your baby or toddler at night and you're ready to stop, this is the book for you. I think this book would be understandable even for a child as young as 15 months.

Luckily, Sally is an indeterminate age, so an older child will still see him or herself in the story. I also love that the child and mom are of indeterminate race. The illustrations are lovely and the language is toddler-friendly. The book acknowledges that the child may wake up at night and feel sad and angry that she can't nurse, but that the next morning she can nurse again. Most important, the book communicates that the child is still loved and that there are many other ways that mommies love their little ones, besides nursing.

Altogether, the tone manages to both validate the hard parts of night-weaning and at the same time celebrate the child's growing independence, while honoring the love between parent and child.

Book Review: Could It Be Autism? A Parent’s Guide to the First Signs and Next Steps

The author is a social worker, and she also has provided some helpful and supportive notes in the book to guide parents through the night-weaning process. Note: This is NOT a book about total weaning, just weaning from night nursing. We all know that children need to be loved unconditionally. The question is how to express our whole-hearted acceptance even while we're guiding their behavior. The answer, says Sandy Blackard, is simply to "say what you see. So, for instance, most parents feel challenged to set limits empathically. When your child comes running up to interrupt you while you're speaking to someone else, Blackard suggests that you might say "You have something to say that you're very excited about" to acknowledge your child's feelings, and then put your arm around him as you set your limit or expectation: "I really want to hear, in just a moment.

Hold that thought. So when your child asks "Mom, do you like my painting? Is it good? This little gem, packed with examples and illustrations, is a simple, elegant, user-friendly guide to giving the healthy feedback that all children need.

Highly recommended. And don't miss my interview with Sandra Blackard. To download, click here: Say What You See. When you hand your child their first phone, you also need to support them with guidance about apps, games, group texts, sexting, porn, predators, geotagging and more. It's a reassuring, tech-positive book full of practical advice for parents to help kids manage their digital lives. If your child is biting, this is the book for you.

Biting is completely normal for little ones, because our mouths are the first part of our bodies to get tense. So when other children encroach on your son's play space, knock over his toys, or shove him, his body "explodes" with tension, and it all comes out through the mouth. But of course biting is painful to the other child, frustrating for the caregiver, and embarrassing for parents. Not to mention, our kids don't actually WANT to bite other children.

It's an act of desperation, a cry for our help.

But most parents have no idea where to begin to help their child stop biting. There's usually so much shame on the part of the parents that they just make the child feel bad -- without giving him tools to stop biting. Enter Lisa Poelle, MA, who worked for 25 years with children and parents. Instead of shaming and blaming, she shows you how to teach children -- even very young children -- to express their needs and emotions in words, so they don't have to bite.

She teaches you how to be truly present in the little moments so you can reconnect with your kids and start living an authentic and intentional life together. Are you losing sleep over your bedtime routine? This step-by-step guide helps you tackle even the toughest bedtime struggles so you and your children can get the sleep you need, without any of the frustration leading up to it. Having helped thousands of parents tackle the bedtime routine, The Sleep Lady is a trusted resource in the world of sleep training.

Do you feel like your child is out of control? Does your child often respond to problems by crying, screaming, swearing, hitting, etc?
