    2. ‘ The Five Love Languages for Children ‘ by Chapman & Campbell

    If you’re a parent, you’ve probably heard of the five love languages. The book is based on the idea that everyone receives and expresses love differently. It has helped people learn how to better express their love in a way that is meaningful to the other person. But it also teaches us how to take care of ourselves as we do this.

    The five love languages are –

        • Words of affirmation – saying “I love you” means more to someone with this language than it does to someone who speaks primarily in gifts and acts of service.

        • Physical touch – this is the universal language that everyone understands and craves.

        • Quality time – spending quality time with your child is one way to show him your love through this language — but not the only way!

        • Gifts – giving gifts shows children you care about them deeply, but quality time says “I care.”

      3. ‘Weird Parenting Wins’ by Hillary Frank

It offers a variety of different strategies for dealing with common issues that parents face every day.

      4. Brain Body Parenting by Mona Delahooke, PhD

      The main idea of the book is “stop reacting and start responding.” The author reminds us that behavior is not a problem, but rather a symptom. Parents struggled with managing their own expectations and responses when my children misbehave. But it is found that understanding the way children’s brains are constantly working and developing, helps the parents to empathize, understand, and help them effectively.

      Therefore, as a parent, we want to be there for our kids when they need us the most – when they are struggling with a new skill or concept. We want to be able to relate to their struggles and frustrations as well as offer them guidance when they need it most.

      5. ‘ How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk ‘ by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish

      It is hard for parents to know what to do when their children are upset. How do you help them express their feelings in an appropriate way? How do you help them understand that they aren’t alone? How do you help them feel better?

      This book on communication between parents and children includes fresh insights and suggestions, as well as the author’s time-tested methods to solve common problems and build foundations for lasting relationships. The book presents strategies for dealing with anger, frustration, sadness, jealousy, disappointment, and even sadness over the loss of a pet or friend. 

      It also offers advice on how parents can help children deal with separation anxiety when they first leave home and how they can help children through puberty by helping them understand their changing body image.
