Rodičovština: Jak mluvíme s dětmi a jak s nimi mluvit lépe, Jennifer Lehr, 2019, 5/5, ⭐
Respektovat a být respektován, Pavel Kopřiva, 2019 5/5
Tahle knížka je primárně myšlená jako návod na budování partnerského vztahu s dětmi. Ve skutečnosti je skvělá i k pochopení mechanismů a kořenů komunikačních faulů, které děláme my sami, když něco řešíme s jinými dospělými, i těch, jimiž nás častují ostatní. Důvody, příklady, nápovědy… V rámci možností knížky o tak komplexním fenoménu Kopřiva a ostatní autoři vytvořili přehlednou rukověť k cestě respektu.
The Montessori Toddler, by Simone Davies, 2019, 5/5

If you’re a fan of Montessori and want to bring the follow the concept at home, this is a great resource. Simone outlines what is really meant by autonomy and choice in the Montessori approach, and how to make that work for your family. Lots of great ideas, tips, and insight packed into this easy to read and beautifully illustrated book.

Klub Nerozbitných detí, Slávka Kubíková, 2019, 5/5
Unconditional Parenting, by Alfie Kohn, 2021, 5/5

Alfie Kohn pioneered the growing mindset shift around praise and rewards. Namely, not only do children not need it, it is detrimental to their sense of self and their self worth. He has written a number of critically acclaimed books and articles blasting the current outcome-based school system for this reason. This is at the top of my must-read list for new parents. It’s a life changing book.

The Conscious Parent, by Dr. Shefali Tsabary

If there is one take-away from the book, it’s this: parenting has almost nothing to do with your child, and everything to do with you, your understanding of yourself, and your commitment to changing yourself (not your child!). I think they should hand this book out in the maternity ward. It should be required reading for every person responsible for the care of others. This perspective is sorely needed: change in your life/family begins with you.

Parenting from theInside Out, by Dr. Dan Siegel

If you’re looking for neuro-scientific proof that responsive parenting is critical to our children’s development, then this book is for you. Dr. Dan Siegel is a world renown professor of clinical psychiatry at UCLA. He has written a number of parenting books – all of them great – but this one gets at the core of parenting – namely, looking at ourselves before we look to our children to change.

Sweet Sleep, by La Leche League

If you find yourself sleep deprived, anxious and confused about your baby’s sleep, and asking yourself, ‘Is this normal?!’, then this is the book for you. It normalizes infant sleep admist a sleep-training obsessed culture. It’s a refreshing alternative to this idea that your baby should be sleeping through the night and is chalk full of advice on how to cope when they aren’t.

It’s OK not to Share, by Heather Shumacker

This book challenges a lot of the ways we think we’re supposed to respond to normal childhood behaviour in the best way possible. I’ve never seen so many very specific examples compiled into one book in such an organized way before. Whereas many parenting books touch on the over-arching concepts, this book dives right into the specifics and how to handle them. It’s a great book to invest in and flip back to often.

Simplicity Parenting, by Kim John Payne

There’s a reason this book is all the rage, and many of you will probably at least have heard of it even if you’ve never gotten around to reading it. I agree with almost everything written; it is a great approach to reducing conflict, increasing connection, and implementing rhythm in your family, without ever actually tackling those issues directly. But you really have to be ready to implement the changes he recommends. These concepts do work … if you are self-discplined enough to make them and stick to them!

The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology that Fuel Success and Performance at Work, Shawn Achorm 2017, 5/5
My Summary: Happiness first, success second. Happiness is skill and can be learnt. Don’t wait for happiness. Actively search for it. We can use our brain to change how we process the world, and that in turn changes how we react to it. Constantly scanning the world for the positive, allows us to experience happiness, gratitude, and optimism. Expand your inner circle. And don’t forget to your friends.
