Parenting DVD Recommendations
I've had 2 great parenting books on my nightstand for over 4 months. It's very embarrassing really. I started both and enjoy both, but it seems there is always something else to read -newspaper, books for my book club, emails and blogs. I try to relay the information I gather during my short reading sessions to my partner because I know he isn't going to read the whole book. Sometimes I just can't relay the information as well as the author.
A fellow urbanmama has a similar situation. She writes:
Can tell me your favorite parenting DVD and why? I am reading a ton of parenting books and am just trying to find something that my husband and I could watch together, rather than me reading a book and trying to "summarize it" for him! We can't afford to go to a classes right now (both time and money reasons), so I would like to at least do this much to make life a little more harmonious with our 4 year old!
My recommendation Alfie Kohn's Unconditional Parenting (which also happens to be one of the books on my nightstand). My partner and I saw Mr. Kohn speak last time he was in town. Luckily, it was really affordable and my partner could come. I would highly recommend the book, DVD or seminar. I wasn't necessarily "wowed" by his concepts, they were more like a light bulb going off. "Of course! Why haven't we been doing this all along?" Do you have a favorite parenting DVD?
