A must-read for parents

Philippa Perry's, The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read, and Your Children Will be Glad That You Did, says it all in the title.


I wish I had read this book earlier in my parenting journey.

It is full of helpful, self-reflective advice for many situations. For example, it explores the roots of what irritates you as a parent. My children do some things that I wonder why these things bother me so much. This book makes you look for the answers in your own childhood. Now when my children do these behaviors, I can recognize the emotions they bring up in me and realize my kids are not purposefully trying to annoy me. A lot of the author's advice can also be applied to relationships in general, not just parenting. I appreciate the real-life, relatable examples that Perry provides throughout the book. Add this book to your summer reading list no matter what age your children are.
