  • Omnipotent Child by Thomas P. Millar - this book stands out from the rest of the list, because it addresses the issues that most other books skim over, because it gets you to the uncomortable places, such as facing a defiant child, choosing meaningful punishment and dealing with stubborn/manipulative behavior in your child. It is the best parenting guide I could find, because it is built parent's self-esteem, which other books usually tend to undermine in the name of a child's self-esteem.
