Parent's Corner: Shiny Happy Kids

The Downtown library has a shelf in the Youth Department known as the Parent Shelf. On this shelf you’ll find a variety of parent-child related books on a multitude of topics- including everything from language to tantrums to potty training to homework. These books are available for checkout, and can be found in the catalog when searching “parent shelf,” if you’d like to have one sent to a branch of your choice.

One topic that might be interesting to read about is how to help raise shiny, happy kids. Check out such titles as The bear essentials: Everything today's hard-pressed parent needs to know about bringing up happy, healthy kids, How to parent so children will learn: Strategies for raising happy, achieving children, and The mindful child : how to help your kid manage stress and become happier, kinder, and more compassionate.
