Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best books I have ever read about how to help your child (and yourself as a parent). The author pulls no punches and lays out a foundation of ten solid ways to help your child's development. He talks about different types of children and approaches to use with each one. I liked the expectations of respect and consequences that seem to be lacking in many parenting books written today. I wish I had this book when my children were younger but it's a book you can use from toddlers to teens.

Format: Hardcover
Another book on the obvious and commonsense, but still worth your time for its unique perspective on the influence of the outside world on families and possible responses. It is well conceived and put together. Still, it should be read in bits to prevent good idea overload. And it will remind you of things you've heard before. But read it...it will open your eyes and heart to new ways of thinking, above all being the premise that you NEED TO KNOW YOUR KID!
