The books in the Joy of Parenting series are not like most parenting books you will find. They are not long, theoretical, difficult to read books written by someone who is has wonderful academic credentials but not much practical experience. These are concise, easy to read, and very down-to-earth. They are intended for a parent in the trenches, not a psychology student in a college classroom.
