I’m a researcher. When I run into an issue with my kids, I read as much as I can about it. I start online where a quick Google search will turn up some good articles. But some of the best advice I’ve heard and applied comes from reading top parenting books.
These aren’t “how-to” guides like when to start solids or how to change a diaper (though I have those as well!). These books discuss parenting. From how to best communicate with our kids to dealing with parent-child conflict.
Many of these will sound familiar from me talking about it so much. They’re intuitive. The actionable items make sense. And the goals for many of them are long-term change, not quick-fix tips.
Below are my top parenting books for new parents and veteran moms. These are my go-to books that form the foundation of how I view parenting.
