Regular Teaching My Baby to Read readers might remember that I am in the middle of a mommy-ed reading list about how to raise resilient children recommended by Dr. Chris Mc Curry of Seattle. Right now I am finishing off the two books by Dr. Wendy Mogel, The Blessing of a Skinned Knee and The Blessing of a B Minus. Both of these books are written for a Jewish audience, but I promise you that you will still find them valuable even if you aren’t Jewish (I’m not.)
These are the first two parenting books that I have read since Foster Cline and Jim Fay’s Love and Logic series that have really spoken to me. So I can’t just write one blog post about Dr. Mogel, I need to write several. But, I’m not going to post any of these thoughts right now. Instead, I’ll share them with you in a few weeks. That way, if you would like to participate in the conversation you will have time to go to the library and check these books out. The library call numbers are: 296.74 MOGEL.
For myself, I’m going to go ahead and purchase The Blessing of a Skinned Knee to have in my collection. That’s how much I like it!
