Some people say that no book can teach you how to be a parent. And yet there are some others who vehemently swear by them. Which type are you?
Our grandparents and even many parents did not raise us by referring to any book. But in today’s rapidly changing world, where there are unreasonable demands on everyone’s time and an immense amount of stress to be kept at bay, are parenting books a boon or bane? While it is true, that parenting skills are learnt by many “on the job”, could we perhaps do with a little help from parenting books?
There is a plethora of books on parenting available in the market, each catering to different target groups and tailored to suit varying tastes (as well as budgets) and written by a gamut of authors, ranging from celebrities to debutantes. If one speaks about dealing with the terrible twos, another doles out advice on getting those essential nutrients into your fussy toddler, while another talks about handling your adolescents mood swings.
So how do we separate the grain from the chaff? What would make you choose one parenting book over another? In your experience, which are the parenting books that have most impressed you? What did you like about them? These are some of the questions that we’d like to find answers for – so dear readers, do tell us! All you have to do is click on the above link and answer a few questions about your experience with parenting books. So what are you waiting for? We’d love to hear from you!
P.S: Survey open till 5th March 2012
