Connection Parenting Book List
Ok, so we already have an extremely complete collection of links to books that are consistent with Connection Parenting principles. Pam and I have read every single one of these books and vetted them all for consistency with her body of work and my work in Emotional Intelligence. No sense in duplicating this list here when that work has been done in depth already. Sorted by category: Pregnancy, Birth & Bonding, Parenting & Optimal Nurturing, Behavior & Discipline, Education & Activities, Communication & Relationships, Personal Growth, Magazines & Periodicals: Connection Parenting Book List
