parenting book recommendations

I have a 9yo SS and I'm looking for good parenting advice for boys his age.  Can anyone recommend any good books?  I basically want to know what are realistic expectations for his age group and positive ways of disciplining and rewarding.

  • I personal like love and logic.  I've heard great things about Bringing up Boys by Dr. James Dobson.

  • One of my personal favorites is The Smart StepMom by Ron Deal and Lisa Petherbridge. It has some really great tips for all ages really. I like it because the tips have been practical. I'm a soon-to-be stepmom and I have to say that already these principles are making a difference in my relationship with SS. Good luck!

  • Great thank you both for the recommendations!
