3 handbooks for young parents

Children are not only the greatest happiness on Earth, but also a great responsibility that falls on the shoulders of young parents. How to take care of the baby in order to maintain and increase his health? What to do when the child does not obey, is naughty and rolls tantrums? Here are just a fraction of the questions that arise in the heads of moms and dads.

Finding answers to them will help the best books for young parents, proven by more than one generation.

There are quite a few worthy books on these topics. We will tell you in detail about the three that should be in each family with children.

1. “The health of the child and the common sense of his relatives” is the handbook of young parents of the countries of the former Soviet Union. It was written by the famous Ukrainian pediatrician E.O.Komarovsky, who helped to raise more than one generation of healthy and happy children.

Reading Komarovsky and watching programs with his participation is a pleasure! In an unsurpassed manner, with humor, colorful descriptions and examples from personal and professional experience, he tells how to take care of the baby, what to do and what should not be done.

The aforementioned book should be purchased even during pregnancy, in order to familiarize yourself with the suggested tips in advance, to understand and feel the near future in the company of the baby. It tells in detail about what conditions to organize at home, how to bathe, feed, introduce complementary foods, help properly with malaise and temperature.

Common childhood infections are also considered. Advice is given on their treatment.

The book “Child Health …” is a real sedative for all family members.

2. The baby is growing, and parents will inevitably face whims, upholding their opinions, unwillingness to obey. How to build a trusting relationship with a child? What is better to do so that the child obeys you? How to speak and listen?

The answers to these and not only questions are given by the well-known child psychologist Julia Gippenreiter in her book for young parents “Communicating with a child. How?”

There are no abstruse phrases in it. The author teaches in an accessible form to see in your child a personality that is worth respecting. She tells how to build communication in the family in order to resolve existing problems and prevent others.

According to the reviews of many satisfied parents, it was thanks to the works of Yulia Borisovna that they were able to establish relationships with children, understand their mistakes and begin work on themselves in the direction of harmonizing family relationships.

3. The book “Lullabies for the whole family”, published thanks to the efforts of singer Natalia Faustova and illustrator Anna Silivonchik, should also appear on the shelves of young parents.

“What for?” – you ask. Then, that lullabies are a time-tested effective way to put a baby to sleep, and not only. Consider the pictures in the book before going to bed, turn on the supplied disc or sing the lullabies presented to yourself, and you will set the fidget to sleepy.

Many studies confirm the beneficial effect of lullabies on child development. They contribute to the establishment of close emotional contact with the mother, calm, influence the development of speech, form the primary idea of ​​the world.

The creator of the project, Natalia Faustova, is primarily a mother. And she was convinced in her own experience of the wonderful properties of these songs. The daughter of the singer met them in the hospital. That is how the warm communication of mother and baby began.

Lullabies help Natalia to calm her daughter, and contribute to a speedy recovery from diseases, including those associated with the nervous system. This fact surprises even doctors, but it is impossible to challenge it.

By the way, the epigraph to the book is the words of Dr. Komarovsky, who ardently supports the project and advocates the spread of lullabies in every family.

“Lullabies for the whole family” is a handbook for young parents. Its peculiarity is that it can be read, sung, listened, flipped, viewed. In it you will find long-known lullabies, and forgotten folk tunes, and completely new songs written specifically for the project.

Reading such a book can initiate a great family evening tradition and become part of the bedtime ritual.

Of course, these are far from all the books of young parents worthy of attention. But this is the basis upon which other knowledge about harmonious development, upbringing, and children’s health will lie.
