This book's small size and darling cover, which makes it not intimidating and not judgemental, is easy to hand someone without looking like YOU are being judgemental. Gentle parenting honors the relationship between parent and child, helping you listen to your heart and your child's heart. This book is great for helping you develop and maintain a strong connection between you and your little one, but also explaining what boundaries are appropriate in that relationship and how to set them and keep them intact.
Great baby shower present along with a sweet infant toy like Sophie the Giraffe. It is supportive, concrete, and has really short chapters, making it helpful in the best possible way, and any new parent will thank you for taking the time to give them such a thoughtful gift.
Essentially the book boils down to the basic premise that your kids will be more inclined to obey you if they feel they can trust you, and then lays out what children consider "trustworthy" behavior, which is not necessarily intuitive to adults who understand more of how the world works and can intuit trustworthiness based on a wider range of criteria. I'd definitely recommend it to new parents - it's hard enough to consider other people's perspectives when you're calm and ready to try - it's a lot harder when you're sleep deprived and emotionally exhausted with caring for a child. This book strives to make it a little easier to remember the long-term philosophy you need to get through the short-term crisis in front of you right now.
