Re: Time out/GD questions and advice needed

kaela, i saw you mention in the BHB thread that you don't read any parenting books, but i wanted to highly recommend the book, Adventures in Gentle Discipline by Hilary Flower (same author as Adventures in Tandem Nursing). it is mostly a compilation of anecdotes from mothers who practice their own forms of gentle discipline. i can't tell you what a difference it has made in our family, and feeling like we finally have the tools to parent the way we *wanted* to, but we had never seen an example of!

my husband and i agreed that while reading it, there were so many examples that made us go, "that makes SO much sense, like i knew it all along, i just didn't realize it".

and many to you, parenting a two year old while very pregnant is HARD work.
