Parents of my generation are lucky to have access to all the information regarding good parenting. Thirty years ago, there were very few books on bringing up children that were available in the market. These days, there are a lot of great books on how to help understand our children and become good parents.
These days, my priority is rearing my kids to become God-loving, good citizens, independent, creative, loving, respectful, and happy individuals. It's a challenge, especially when we we have so many responsibilities to deal with, so it's important to seek help. Going to a professional or reading up on child rearing books are empowering tools to become the best parents we can be.
Here are two books that Tom and I are reading. So far, they are both great reads and funny too! Like what I always say, sharing is caring.
|Great buys: I bought both books from PowerBooks, Glorietta 4. They were 20% off!|
|I needed to read this book! Aryanna will soon enter "Girl World".|
Aryanna scanned through 'Queen Bees Wannabes' and quipped: "Mom, I think that's for girls who want to fit in." O, di ba? Ibang level sha! Haha! Honestly, I sometimes feel as if my daughter is the one teaching me.
Anyway, it's worth the read. In the end, it gives me the tools on how to deal with difficult situations that may arise in the future when it comes to my daughter.
|Raising boys is an uncharted territory for me. Other moms who have sons tell me, "boys are easier than girls." I hope so! Haha! I'm reading this book because I want my son to grow up well-balanced, independent, respectful of girls, and happy.|
Tom is the one reading 'Raising Boys'. He told me it's a good book to read for both parents. We're going to swap books when we're done.
|My bedside reading pile: Balancing family and fashion pa rin! LOL|
Shoppingero/shoppingera, what parenting books have read lately?
