Any Good Book on Parenting


#1

I need to read some good books on parenting, it will be great if someone could refer me to a good book…


#2

You come from a culture, where usage of a parenting book is non-existent.

You should have enough advice READILY available from your parents/parents-in-laws or your elder uncle/auntie/brother/sister/cousins/2nd-cousins/senior-co-workers etc.


#3

I am sure there are plenty of great books on Amazon.

Congrats on the kid!

Since we are on the Fiverr platform, “For just 5$, I will provide parenting advice to you”.

Feed it two times a day,
Keep it away from hazardous things like giant woolly mammoths and saber tooth tigers.
Basically, avoid this,

@djgodknows cultures do change with time… I do have my elders advising me about my new born… I just wanted to read 2 - 3 books of different cultures and different thoughts just to know what they are feeding in their kids brains… Of course I will not blindly follow any writer, but it is always good to have knowledge… It is my first baby, just curious…

A close friend suggested me these. He has read all of them. He got the reference from quora.
“I would recommend you book by Emma Jenner and Videos by Dr. John Ratey” - My friend :smiley: :slight_smile:

No I understand, but what I stated was what happens in reality in the South Asian community, as people come from left and right with overwhelming parenting advice.
I find that humoring.

I just became an uncle less than 24 hours ago, and as we were surrounding the newborn in the hospital, everyone had a say in how the baby should be wrapped up to maintain a constant temperature that she had, inside the mother’s womb. :baby:


#14

That kind of advice is always available everywhere, I just wanted to read something related to Psychology of kids, how to raise his BRAIN to be a positive addition to this world… I am not much concerned about his physical growth; how to wrap him/how feed him/how to bath him etc. However, I would love to know to how to devlop and raise his brain, environment, moral values, etc.

I asked my co-workers, someone suggested ‘Mind In The Making’ by Ellen Gallinsky. The one who has read it has found many of the tips useful, or so they claim; Personally, I’d take it with a grain of salt because a parent loving a book and the book having a long term impact on a child are two things. It could be a case of a parent who loves reading psychology books.

Us boys of the desi sub-continent can only tell you things like how to upgrade from Wordpress ver 4.6 to ver 4.7. All my life, I’ve only raised blogs, never raised kids. Fellow forum member @lynnehuysamen actually has some experience in this department. She even has a blog about it. She might be able to provide valuable insight.


#16

I have actually ghost written an ebook on child development, from 1st month to 24th month, with detailed guidelines for each month…but cannot share that with you for client confidentiality reasons :slight_smile: But this should be a great time for you.


#17

Thanks @silkroute and yes while I have a mommy blog @zubairfb I truly believe that we are meant to be parents. We actually have great instincts when it comes to parenting.

If you want to know how to develop your child’s brain and to have your child grow up with good morals and values the best thing you can do is to make yourself a role model for your child.

I believe that as parents we second guess ourselves all the time, we keep on reading up on how to be a good parent. It is much simpler than that, just play with your child, be as present as possible and engage as much as possible.Treat your child with care and respect, honestly you won’t go wrong :slight_smile:

Also keep your spidey senses intact while nurturing your mommy instincts.

When I was little, my mom used to put sugar in my mouth every time I fell down and scraped a knee and started crying. ‘Surprisingly’, I started falling down a lot often and our household sugar budget went up immediately.

@writer99025 Perhaps, I could buy that ebook from your client… I hope he’s written it to benefit himself and the world :smiley:
