Parenting with Love and Logic by Jim Fay and Foster Cline—is my all time favorite “parenting manual.” The loveandlogic.com website is also invaluable. This “parenting advice” teaches how to lovingly help your children suffer the logical consequences of their choices (unless of course their health and safety is jeopardized).
YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES: What Every Father Needs to Hear by John Eldredge. 64 page soft cover. Easy-to-read (in less than 2 hours). My husband recommends this book to every dad he meets.
