Study time!

Well as you can see there are a number of books I’ve read since the fall of last year. All are helping tremendously with my parenting journey. I have to say that I’m so glad I waited to read all these titles (except “Parenting Beyond Belief” and “Living Simply with Children” which I ploughed through years ago). I’d come across some of them years before I became a mom although others are new to me. The following is a list of the books I’m aiming to read by next year:

https://www.amazon.com/Raising-Black-Boys-Jawanza-Kunjufu/dp/1934155071

Magical Child    https://www.amazon.com/Magical-Child-Joseph-Chilton-Pearce/dp/0452267897

I started this book awhile back and am still at it. Very practical. Written simply. It’s a fun read!

Raising Vegan Children in a Non-Vegan World    https://www.amazon.com/Raising-Vegan-Children-Non-Vegan-World/dp/0972510206

Raising Revolutionaries    https://www.amazon.com/Raising-Revolutionaries-Apetebii-Osunyemi-Akalatunde/dp/147001260X

The Black Parenting Book   https://www.amazon.com/Black-Parenting-Book-Caring-Children/dp/0767901967     I started this book a few months ago and am struggling to get through it. Why? I find it very conservative. The whole step-by-step approach is a turn off to me and I don’t find it realistic since every child/family is so unique. It is also written from a very allopathic standpoint which I’m not drawn to.  That being said I’m sure some parents love the book.
