The Best Parenting Books - September 2021
Today there are a vast amount of parenting books out there and reading books is a great way to change our neural pathways.
When you read, your brain creates new memories, forming new synapses between your brain’s nerve cells necessary for the transmission of information from one cell to others, while strengthening neural pathways that already exist.
As you work on rewiring your brain you will also be changing how you show up as a parent. You will be more educated and informed and will be able to understand your child more deeply.
That is why today I have included recommendations of some incredible parenting books which cover everything from parenting in the screen age to up-levelling your communication with your kids, understanding self regulation and learning more about Polyvagal theory (the nervous system).
If you are new to conscious parenting and want to expand your mind and become more conscious then start here. These are the parenting books which I currently recommend to parents who I work 1-1 with. You can also find more parenting book suggestions here:

- Beyond Behaviours: Using Brain Science and Compassion To Understand and Solve Children’s Behavioural Challenges by Mona Delahooke. This book is my go to recommended parenting book at the moment because quite simply it is incredible. “Mona Delahooke has integrated knowledge from the fields of infant mental health, child development, clinical psychology and neuroscience to provide a revolutionary approach to challenging behaviours in children.” Beyond behaviours draws on 30 years of experience to explain that these troubled behaviours are the ‘tip of the iceberg’ – important signals that point to deeper, individual differences in the child that we need to understand and address before we can resolve anything else In fact, many children who can’t seem to behave simply don’t have the developmental capacity to do so – yet.
