Resources Hand Picked by a Therapist

As all of you may know, there is no shortage of resources in our culture regarding parenting, child development, and even discipline. Due to this, it is very normal to feel overwhelmed and not know which books to read or which websites to visit. Over the years, I have found myself referring back to the same ones I find valuable when talking with caregivers. So, I would like to share my list with you all here! Please remember, there is no “one size fits all” approach when it comes to parenting. I encourage you to read reviews, and if you connect with information, great! If not, I encourage you to continue your search until you find something that fits with your values. resources
