Easy to Love Difficult to Discipline by Becky Bailey is my favorite so far. I also liked Playful Parenting by Lawrence J Cohen.

"Bringing Up a Moral Child "
by Michael Schulman

This is NOT a book about religion. It guides parents to raise their child to have a true sense of morality, as a human and social attribute, and not simply obedience or conformity.

The Prophet By Kahlil Gibran

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, "Speak to us of Children."
And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Lifeís longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archerís hand be for gladness;
For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

*************

Pretty much my parenting advice in a nutshell. Worked for me.

I really Positive Discipline, the First Three Years by Jane Nelsen. A kind, firm approach to discipline.

The Strong Willed Child by Dr. Dobson

Not necessarily a fan of some of his reasonings, but there is some spot on advice for those who have strong willed children or just want to learn how to handle certain issues with your child that require a lot of "will".

I also enjoyed "What to Expect When You Are Expecting" when preggo with #1...the pure newness & excitement of your first pregnancy is a real gift. I remember looking ahead a few weeks & be so excited to get to that point.

I hate the "What to expect..." books. I am amazed that this series is so popular.
