These are a couple of my favourite books on parenting. I often recommend them because they are quick reads and yet give you an incredible base for connection type parenting. These books are also excellent books to lend to family and friends new to this type of parenting, and especially great for partners not interested in reading much on the subject.
From the back of Raising Children Compassionately:
“If you’ve searched for parenting tips to improve your family dynamics, you are not alone. This powerful, practical boolet offers the unique skills and perspective of Nonviolent Communication. While other parenting resources offer communication models or discipline techniques, NVC stresses the importance of putting compassionate connection first. Compassionate parenting can help fcreate a mutually respectful, enriching family dynamic filled with clear, heartfelt communication. Raising Children Compassionately is an exceptional resource for parents, parent educators, families and anyone else who works with children.
“NVC will empower you to:
- Motivate without the threat of punishment or the promise of reward
- Listen so others are really heard
- Strengthen your emotional connection to your partner and children
