The art of growing up with your children along with providing for your children is known as parenting. I write “growing up with your children” because nobody is born a parent. We all learn from our experience and provide the best for our kids. All parents strive to bring up children who are good human beings, are able to take decisions wisely and are able to fend for themselves. Parents promote and support the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of their children.
In a world that is flooded with information, there is an overabundance of advice on parenting too. Tips, tricks, forums, discussions, debates …. They are all there seeking parents out and pass on the info to them.
Books, however, have not lost their charm with many of us. There are many books on parenting available. In your favorite bookshop, or online these parenting books give a concise approach to parenting. Here is a list of the best parenting books:
