From tonight, I am running a Rafflecopter giveaway.
The particular book I’m giving away is, in my opinion, one of the best attachment parenting books I have ever read! The series of books written by this author have changed my life and my views on how children develop. L.R. Knost (the author) is an inspirational woman. Her books and her website have opened my mind and my heart to the idea that children don’t need to be punished to learn right from wrong. There was a time when I relied on time-outs. I cringe when I think back but sadly I wasn’t ever given the right information; I didn’t know better and with television shows (that I won’t name but I’m sure you’re aware of) I couldn’t imagine any other way – but there is!
I want to give away a brand new copy of this book to help someone out there. To gain the tools to find a more gentle way to discipline, if they wish to do so.
About the book:
Gentle Parenting is about guiding instead of controlling, connecting instead of punishing, encouraging instead of demanding. It’s about listening, understanding, responding, and communicating. Written by children’s book and parenting author, L.R.Knost, ‘Two Thousand Kisses a Day: Gentle Parenting Through the Ages and Stages’ is an introduction to the ideas behind gentle parenting and to its application in each of the developmental stages of childhood.
About the author:
Children’s book and parenting author, L.R.Knost, is an independent child development researcher and founder and director of the advocacy and consulting group, Little Hearts/Gentle Parenting Resources, as well as a monthly contributor to The Natural Parent Magazine. She is also a babywearing, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, homeschooling mother of six. Her children are a twenty-five-year-old Pastor and married father of two; a twenty-three-year-old married Family Therapist working on an advanced degree; an eighteen-year-old university pre-med student on scholarship; thirteen- and six-year-old sweet, funny, socially active, homeschooled girls; and an adorable twenty-five–month-old nursling. Other works by L.R.Knost include the ‘Wisdom For Little Hearts’ series and the soon-to-be-released ‘Grumpykins’ series of children’s picture books which are humorous and engaging tools for parents, teachers, and caregivers to use in implementing gentle parenting techniques in their homes and schools.
Best of luck, everyone!
