I am a big reader and interested in getting hold of books about parenting styles which, from my limited understanding of them, might suit me a bit better than SWSNBN etc. However, I can't afford to keep on buying them (already got Pantley, Leach, Rapley etc!) and my local library is a bit limited - mainly Gina Ford, Thingy Hogg and Clare Byam-Cook. Do places like the NCT have lending libraries or should I just be keeping an eye out on ebay? And any suggestions for new reading material? Ta
Your local library will be able to order them for you. You may have to wait a while but they will come eventually and sometimes surprisingly quickly. Have you read 'Raising our children, Raising ourselves' or Pantley's book on parenting e.g. hidden messages.
mumblechum Partly because I'm just a voracious reader, partly because I like to read a bit of everything and thoroughly confuse myself, and partly because DD is taking 2-3 hours to feed to sleep at the moment and I'm running out of things to read!
