The Parent Resource List

Posted on March 6, 2015 at 6:28 AM
We have a discussion/communication time in every Bradley™ class session.  Towards the end of the series, we ask, "What else do you need/want to learn before your Sweet Pea arrives?"

Our Winter Class came up with the most varied list that we have had in a long time.  There is a lot of information rattling around in my head after parenting and teaching for the last ten years, so I prepared this list for them and sent it out after class.  Since the work was done, I also wanted to share it with you.

Please leave us a comment if your favorite resource in these categories is not listed.  We are always glad to learn about more places that encourage and support growing families.

Baby Sign Language
Note: I personally do not believe in "baby" sign language.  ASL is a language, and I believe it should be taught well *and* correctly.  We do not change the language we verbally speak, because infants eventually learn how to pronounce words correctly. I passionately believe the same is true for ASL - show your child the correct signs, and they will make their own modifications until they can do it well, and then they will have it as a tool for the rest of their lives.

Great resource online:

Children’s Books to share with them:

Patience & Self-Discipline
These are all resources that I have found helpful as I grow as a parent.  Treat it as a buffet – take what works for you and leave the rest.  I am a huge believer that the best thing you can do is throw out the books and read your child.  That being said, it's good to have an idea list of things to try, and reassurance and validation that the path you are on is a good one...so, read to educate and empower yourself.  Try not to make yourself crazy trying to be a "perfect" parent (hint: they do not exist), or feel guilty about your choices.

I intended to put you a very small observation just to give thanks as before about the wonderful concepts you've discussed on this page. It is unbelievably generous with people like you to give extensively all many of us would have offered for sale for an ebook to end up making some cash for their own end, and in particular given that you might well have tried it in the event you wanted. Those advice additionally acted as a fantastic way to realize that other people online have similar keenness the same as my very own to know somewhat more in terms of this condition. I am sure there are a lot more pleasant opportunities in the future for folks who read carefully your website.
