Top 20 Best Parenting Books


Our goal: Find what the internet ranks as the best Parenting books (instead of one person's opinion).

    Our process:
  1. Search for "best parenting books" and study the top 7 articles.
  2. Add only the books mentioned 2+ times.
  3. Rank the results neatly for you here! 😊
    (This took a long time, but we do the research so you don't have to!)

FAQ

  • How did you determine these are the top (or best books) for parents?

    We did this by averaging the lists in top parent articles on Google. This way, we were able to get a sense of what the most recommended parent books are. We also averaged good reviews to see which top parenting books are rated the best.

  • Are parenting books helpful?

    There is no one answer to this question, as parenting books can be helpful in different ways depending on the family. However, many parents find that reading about different approaches to parenting and child-rearing is a good way of helping them develop their own style and find solutions to common challenges. That said, not all parenting books are created equal. It is important to do your research before you buy a book (and we hope this list provided a little help!) Additionally, it is important to read critically and take everything with a grain of salt. After all, the only person who knows what's best for your family is you 😊

  • Are these books best for raising a baby, or slightly older kids?

    The answer is we have a bit of both. For example, "The Baby Book" by Dr. Sears is geared towards parents of infants, while "How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk" is more appropriate for parents of children aged 3 and up.
