Oooh! "Your Two Year Old" by Illg and Ames (most libraries have it)- AWESOME pure mental and emotional development of the two year old. Give you a HUGE step in understanding what is going on in the brain that year, will help understand certain behaviors. I have found those books *so* helpful. Also Grace Based Parenting by Dr. Tim Kimmel- this is the ONLY Christian parenting book I really would ever recommend. It is not a "this is how you should handle a) b) and c) situations" or even "this is how you and all parents should parent"...It's a look at the Father heart of God. Don't let the title scare you it is not a book on permisivness and actually doesn't talk about discpline per say- it just discusses your attitude as a parent and parenting philosophy. There is SO much great stuff to be taken from it- and push through to the second half (I found it a bit slow about midway but it picked up and was so worth it). It has totally transformed how we view our job as parents. Here is a review http://smoothstonesacademy.blogspot.com/2009/07/book-review-grace-based-parenting.html gotta run baby fussing!
One of the best books on discipline is 1 2 3 Magic...I read it before I started teaching!! I used it everyday!!! Using this helps you to not give attention to the negative behavior and also a great opportunity to reteach the correct behavior!
Dr. Sears: The Discipline Book. He also has a Christian Parenting and Child Care Book that might be beneficial.
