Below you will find a list of our favorite Gentle Parenting related resources. Some are Christian specific, some are not.
Please note: while we do support the "tool-kit" approach, there are many different ways to parent and we all need different tools, we do NOT endorse any form of punitive discipline or corporal punishment (including spanking/hitting/swatting/slapping/flicking/etc.) OR any resources that suggest or support this. This page is also against any form of public "child shaming".
