You may have missed the new addition to my rather limited blog roll- the Child of Mine blog, in which a couple of developmental psychologists write about parenting issues. It is one of my new favorite blogs. This week, Isabel is tackling toddler discipline. I love this for two reasons- (1) I'm learning some useful things and (2) I get to cross "research discipline ideas" off of my to do list.
Isabel and her husband also have a book about when to time sleep training, based on their knowledge of child development. It is called Bedtiming, and the US edition has just been released. I am tempted to get it even if Petunia continues to be a good sleeper (we've had a bit of a setback with my return to work, or possibly because of the 3 month growth spurt, so I'm still not sure what kind of sleeper she's going to be, other than "easier than her sister"). The first few chapters are apparently a review of childhood development, which I think would be really interesting and useful.
