Parenting is a tough job and Essex Libraries has a wide range of books that can support you through those challenging times.  As well as general books on various parenting issues in every library, we also have 31 booklists on such diverse topics as autism, bereavement, mental health and wellbeing, new experiences, potty training, tantrums and understanding your teenager.  These lists contain a mix of books for adults and titles you can share with your children.


There are also several parenting courses available on Universal Class including topics such as Early Childhood Development, Child Psychology, Building Self-Esteem in Children and even one on Children’s Birthday Parties!  These are all free with your library card.
