10 of My Favorite Books about Parenting

Week #3 of your Month of Reading Bravely is all about parenting. What I love about these 10 books is that they resist the urge to give parents rules for raising your kids. I find those kinds of books to be simplistic and disempowering. Instead, these ten books invite awareness and reflection– about what parenting stirs in you, about what’s possible and needed in the relationship between you and your child, and about who you want to be as a parent. Enjoy!
