Revibe's Reading List for Parents

July 12, 2019

If you see one you'd like to read, click the linked title to order it! Let us know what you think!

  1. The Whole-Brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind

    Written by a neuropsychiatrist and parenting expert, this practical book explains the new science behind how a child's brain develops. You'll learn the physiological reason why kids throw tantrums and tend to have more emotional outbursts than adults. There's also a workbook version (basically the same content as the book, but if you like written worksheet type exercises, the workbook may be for you). If you want a sneak preview, read my blog, Understanding and Supporting Your Child's Brain Development. I'll share my main takeaways, so you won't have to read it  ;-)

  2. No-Drama Discipline: The Whole-Brain Way to Calm the Chaos and Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind

    Written by the same authors, this book focuses more on the "how-to" part of parenting and discipline. I loved that it had lots of real world examples of what to say in common situations that came in the form of easy to read cartoons. Same deal as above with the workbook version - it's basically the same content as the book but includes written exercises.

  3. Smart But Scattered: The Revolutionary "Executive Skills" Approach to Helping Kids Reach Their Potential

    While the first two on the list were books that could apply to any parent, this one is geared specifically for parents with children who struggle to stay focused. This one teaches parents how to help their kids develop "executive skills" like time management and organization. 

  4. Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life, 3rd Edition: Life-Changing Tools for Healthy Relationships (Nonviolent Communication Guides)

    We'll end with my personal favorite. This one can actually help you in all realms of life - not just parenting. I can honestly say this book changed my life. It's a short but powerful read and if you put it into practice, you'll reap benefits on many levels.
