During my leave of absence from University (had my child), I read all books on parenting that Toronto libraries had. Alyson Schafer's books realy stood out. It's definitely one of the best books on parenting I ever read.
Highly recommend to everyone!

A great book on parenting. I was raised with 'spare the rod, spoil the child,' but feel this to be uncomfortable as I journey with my own toddler. It was a nice to hear good intellectual reasons for why I should raise my child the way my heart already believed. In the end, we can only offer our children the model of who we strive to be. I often think humanity needs to live today the way we believe the world should be tomorrow. Well, to extend this reasoning, I think the core of this book is that we should treat our children today, the way we hope they will treat others and themselves, tomorrow. And no, it's not always easy, but practice helps, and the book is full of helpful tools.
