The Top 3 Parenting Books Released So Far This Year
As communicated in our articles on parenting this week, we all know that being a parent is a career we need support with, and part of that support can come from a book. I have personally read many parenting books, one in particular that saved my life with my little "indigo" guy, which I will be sharing with you soon.
But with so many on the market, it is hard to know which ones to read. Natasha from Book Bonding has again helped us out with 3 brilliant new parenting books.

To lay down the foundations of good mental health early in your daughter's life, and to keep her strong all the way through. And secondly, to enlist you in the new wave of feminism, fighting against a world that is so toxic to our kids.' You can read it straight through and get great ideas for raising your daughter. But it also offers interactive tasks as opportunities for parents to consider topics with more depth, courtesy of the reader-response style.

3. How To Raise Independent Children - Michael Grose
Michael Grose Founder of Parenting Ideas, one of Australia's leading parenting educators and author of 10 books has just released Spoonfed Generation: How to raise independent children. It's well established that parents in western countries such as Australia currently do too much for their kids, albeit with good intentions. While terms such as 'helicopter parents', 'bubble-wrapping kids' and 'over-parenting' are now common place, they are unhelpful and offer little direction for parents. Spoonfed Generation will explain the importance of children's independence and the vital stages to letting go. Never before has a generation been so dependent on their parents; now it's time to remove the spoon and put it back in the drawer." home environment and the way that we parent can impact our children's potential to recover from difficulty. It includes 7 things to stop doing right now including Fight all their battles for them, Let kids give in too easily and Put unrealistic or relentless pressure on kids to perform. ABC Books
