Peaceful Parenting Book?

Recommended Posts

I know Stefan mentioned awhile ago that he was working on a book, any update on when it will be out. I think it would be immensely helpful for a lot of people, myself included. 

In the meantime, what are the best 1-2 books to start with?

Stef has suggested Parent Effectiveness Training by Thomas Gordon before. I would recommend it as well. I would also recommend the philosophical parenting podcast feed he has put together. Great stuff in there.

I have some recommendations as well.

Between Parent and Child by Haim Ginott

How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish, who were students of Ginott

Positive Discipline by Jane Nelsen

Hi thinkers and alike,

Not necessarily a parenting book, however immensely useful for seeing dynamics we and others participate in, encourage.

Eric Berne - Games People Play

(link to the author's site)

This is what Kurt Vonegut Jr. said about it in the famous 1965 Life Magazine review of Games People Play:

    “An important book . . . a brilliant, amusing, and clear catalogue of the psychological theatricals that human beings play over and over again.  The good Doctor has provided story lines that hacks will not exhaust in the next 10,000 years”
