My son is only one year old, but I started reading Calm and Compassionate Children in the aisles and couldn't put it down. Though the author's anecdotes often involve school-aged children, her philosophy works for every family member. This is as much a guide to being more aware of our own behavior as it is a guide to fostering trust, empathy, and integrity in our kids. It's a very quick read, full of practical advice and not one page of useless statistical filler.
