Especially with Summer Reading programs going on, what books do you choose for your children? I always let Sasha choose some books for herself, but I try to request books I think she'll enjoy. Here is a good list of books. Now if only my library had all of them!
We tell each other, "be gentle with yourself." We advise not to be too hard on ourselves. I think for us (my husband and I), we sometimes get uncomfortable if our child isn't "behaving" in public. Parents tend to feel that it is a direct reflection on their parenting skills. This article reminds us that our children are not just mirrors of us. They are their own individual beings and we shouldn't feel guilt over their personalities and temperaments. Great article!
