Read Free Parenting Books

PublicBookshelf has parenting books that cover a wide variety of topics from good parenting skills to facts about single parenting. Read books online free.

Both newbie parents and those that have been in the trenches for a while will find great titles to help them solve current parenting issues. From understanding how to toilet train toddlers to handling more difficult issues, such as teen drug interventions, parenting titles can help you handle life's little troubles.

Babies and toddlers can test the most dedicated parent. Caring for cradle cap or calming night fears can confuse new parents. Should you play music for your child in the womb or should you wait until they are born? Is teaching your child sign language before they can speak beneficial or will it delay regular speech? Find the information you need in our selection of parenting book titles.

Tweens and teens have their own special needs. Knowing what to expect can help you weather the hormonal storm that will eventually hit your house. Look for tips and tricks on how to help your child succeed in school, how to help your child organize their school and social life, how to effectively manage your child's burgeoning independence, as well as topics of interest to today's new and blended families.

No one starts out as a great parent. It takes a lot of practice, plenty of patience, and a liberal dose of expert advice. Begin your search in the Parenting category.

Lizzy Ford

I wrote my first novel in the 3rd grade - a five page essay on why stars were cool - that I threw away at the end of the school year. In sixth grade, I wrote my second great novel: a 17,000 word science fiction piece I later threw away because I didn't like it. Since then, I've been a prolific closet-writer whose merciless perfectionism kept me from progressing to the next level. After 15 years beating my head against a wall working for Uncle Sugar, I woke up one day and decided it's time to make writing my real day job, not my weekend dream. I love writing fantasy/paranormal fiction, to include romantic fiction, my current favorite. I write poetry, short stories and literary fiction as well and am fascinated by interactions between flawed characters, which is basically what life in general is all about.
