This isn’t about perfect parenting; it’s about understanding a child’s developmental journey and how we can support that journey. It’s acknowledging that we— parents and caregivers—aren’t done with ourselves yet and that parenting is an opportunity for us to learn and grow. It’s about experiencing, even with all the stresses and challenges, the joy in family life.
Both of these books are beautifully illustrated and filled with easily digestible information, perfect for parents on the go with limited time.
