My Favorite Parenting Book

Love and Logic Magic for Early Childhood Practical Parenting from Birth to Six Years” by Jim Fay is my favorite parenting book!

my favorite parenting book

When I was in the classroom we read “Teaching with Love and Logic” and it really worked for me so I gave this book a try. I bought it when B was like 6 months old (I’m not kidding!) and starting to get into things. I realized then I didn’t have a plan and needed to get one.

A lot of it is common sense (a nice reminder though) and focuses on giving your child choices as often as possible, consistent dialogue to use, and empathy and consequences. There is only a small section for young babies but I’ve already read the entire book several times and I refer back to it every 6 months or so after a rough day.

Jim Fay and his crew are my ALL TIME FAVORITES!!!! Anytime I get into a parenting crisis/struggle I think--- "what would love and logic say about this"???!
