L.R.Knost strikes an easy, conversational, parent-to-parent tone as she shares practical ideas for how to address common childhood issues gently and peacefully. J. Craig, retired educator
From the first page to the last, it refreshingly does exactly what it promises: it shows you how to parent gently, with kindness, compassion, and connection, always keeping that strong and healthy relationship with your child at the forefront of your journey. It takes you back to what parenting should be: a respectful partnership. A dance between parent and child, where everyone's voices are heard, and everyone's needs are met. J. Mcgrail, The Path Less Taken
L.R.Knost gives clear examples, fantastic suggestions, and clear information for gentle parents wanting to develop secure, healthy, lifelong connections with their children. Smooth Parenting
Two Thousand Kisses a Day: Gentle Parenting Through the Ages and Stages reads like gentle suggestions from a good friend. Although the book covers a broad range of ages and stages, the chapters are short and easy to read. The author provides understandable scenarios to illustrate her points and gives easy-to-follow suggestions for everyday difficulties from a gentle parenting point of view. Gina Osher, The Twin Coach
About the Author
Best-selling parenting and children's book author, L.R.Knost, is an independent child development researcher and founder and director of the advocacy and consulting group, Little Hearts/Gentle Parenting Resources, as well as a monthly contributor to 'The Natural Parent Magazine.' She is also a babywearing, breastfeeding, cosleeping, homeschooling mother of six. Her children are a 25-year-old Pastor and married father of two; a 23-year-old married Family Therapist working on an advanced degree; an 18-year-old university pre-med student on scholarship; 13 and 6-year-old sweet, funny, socially active, homeschooled girls; and an adorable 25-month-old toddler. 'Two Thousand Kisses a Day: Gentle Parenting Through the Ages and Stages' and 'Whispers Through Time: Communication Through the Ages and Stages of Childhood' are the first two books in L.R.Knost's series of gentle parenting guides. 'Petey's Listening Ears,' the first in her Wisdom For Little Hearts series and her soon-to-be-released 'Grumpykins' children's picture book series for ages 2 to 6 are humorous and engaging tools for parents, teachers, and caregivers to use in implementing gentle parenting techniques in their homes and schools.

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.
Her books are absolutely amazing and I recommend them to every single parent I know.
The Kindle version is a GREAT value! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
