    I was pretty skeptical when I read the title ┬┐Say Goodbye to Whi

    I was pretty skeptical when I read the title “Say Goodbye to Whining, Complaining, and Bad Attitudes…in you and your kids!”, but lately the whining and bad attitudes

    in my house was starting to get way out of hand so I was willing to try anything to get it sorted out.

    Now I’d like to say all this whining and attitude was coming from my kids, but it wasn’t. I have to say I was (am) part of the problem, only I didn’t realize it at

    first. After reading the first couple of chapters in the book, I came to the realization that I had to make some changes too, it wasn’t all up to my kids to change!

    What I read was incredibly straight forward and I can see my parenting style reflected in many of the examples, but I think what stuck home most for me was the

    difference between parenting from respect and parenting from honour…

    I wanted my children to do what I asked, without question. I forget that they are little people with their own feelings and wants. In order for my children honour

    me, I have to honour them too. The book has shown me ways to still teach my children how to obey but also teach them ways to tell me, without whining or complaining

    that they disagree with me.

    The biggest difference this book has made in my life is how I handle everyday situations with my daughter. Instead of just ignoring her whining or getting angry I now

    ask her a simple question like…”How can we fix this without whining and getting angry?” She is very creative in her responses. I even caught her saying to her baby

    brother, “You know it’s very hard to honour you when you act like a monkey.” So she may not be understanding it 100% but we’re getting onto the concept. I find as

    each day progresses it’s becoming a part of our lifestyle.

    It all doesn’t come easy. Parenting with honour takes work and self reflection. It takes some moments of humility to see the errors in your ways and some deep

    breaths and patience because sometimes it just seems easier to say…”Okay, timeout for you!”

    The book ends each chapter with a series of questions for you to work through. At first I just skipped through them, but at about the half way mark in the book, I

    doubled back and started answering them. They are an important tool in understanding how honour works for you, your relationships and your life. They help you work

    through what the scriptures say about parenting with honour.

    Each family is different and has their on unique set of challenges, but this book has made a huge difference in my family. My kids are young and I’m so happy to have

    learned some of these lessons before they have become teens. I’ve really welcomed the opportunity and have even left the book out where I know my husband will pick it

    up and read through it. Our family has achieved amazing results in such little time…

    Would I recommend this book? Absolutely! Would I suggest reading it through more than once? Absolutely. Even when I go back to reference something in the book I

    find something new or it refreshes a technique that I have been trying to use.

    Disclosure: I received the products mentioned above for this review. No monetary compensation was received by me. This is my completely honest opinion above and may

    differ from yours.

    highly recommend

    This book not only helps you with teaching your kids but you as well. You can apply this to any part of your life. Teach your kids how to properly hand issues instead of teaching them whats in it for me if I behave. This book can work for anyone. While each of our kids are different this heart based approach works for both of them. I love the fact that I am not having to ween them off the reward/behavior system. They want to help because they want to not because they will get something in return.

    This really works!

    I highly recommend this book to those parents who may be struggling with your kids 'attitudes'....I had to re-adjust my parenting technique, and was skeptical, but I can tell you this book has been a valuable resource for me! It has brought tremdous change to the 'mood' of our home! Read it, practice it, you will NOT be dissapointed! Easy to read, I am on my second reading!

    My women's Bible study group is using this book and DVD set. We've worked really hard to teach our son to respect others, to be thoughtful, to treat his friends, home and belongs with respect. While teaching respect is fine, this book outlines an even more important principle and character to teach, and that's honor. Honor is not a word we used in our home until now. So, instead of telling our 5yr old son to choose a birthday gift that he thinks his friend would like because it's 'thoughtful' or 'nice', we tell him to make a choice that would honor his friend. When he does something helpful that wasn't requested or expected, we are quick to tell him how that act honored our family, our home, etc. It may seem like a small thing, but it's been a great tool! Just changing our choice of words has changed his attitude when being asked to do something. I can't wait to see what the 2nd half of the book has to offer. The beauty of this book is that it all comes from a Christian foundation and references the Bible for further reading. LOVE it!
