Are there any good guide-books/non-fictions on parenting children/teenagers/infants that look at parenting not from a practical POV but more from a psychological POV? Simply books that teach you to be better parents? I am not looking for books that teach you how to change diapers, but those that teach parents how to cultivate compassion and trust in their children.

1. The Gardener and the Carpenter. 2. Nurture Shock 3. How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk 4. The Talent Code 5. Brave Parenting Are some that I have read and can recommend. Sorry. Read the Brave Parenting recently and can recommend that as well. Gardener and the Carpenter looks at parenting from a very anthropological standpoint and it made a lot of sense to me. Talent Code is scientific. The others are from a psychological point of view.

Try getting some books from Janet Lansbury. She's a parenting coach and so many methods from her have been useful with my daughter. Try checking out her podcasts as well.

Try "Courage to be Happy". Not specifically about parenting, but delves into the psychology of how to form healthy relationships with others, especially those who you're looking to educate. But it does require reading of the first book "Courage to be disliked".

Oh. And how can I forget? Highly, highly recommend signing up for this newsletter. I have been on it for some months now and look forward to it everyday. It says "dad" but it is for mums as well. A Stoic way to look at parenthood. Some really potent stuff.

Mindset had some important bits for interacting with children correctly, especially when it comes to their studies and skill development. The Drama of the Gifted Child applies to kids that were stereotypical “good kids” while growing up and now suffer from feelings of emptiness and loneliness as they grew up.

One of the best parenting books is "Taming the Tiger Parent" by Tanith Carey.
