Finally a great parenting book that is relevant to this generation of both parents and kids that make sense from a Christian perspective. Both my husband and I enjoyed reading chapters of this to one another considering some new alternatives to problems that impact our family's.
Do activities rule your family? Do you have a superkid - or a super-stressed kid? Does your busyness keep you from leaving the indelible imprint you long to have on your child's life? Does next week's schedule leave you exhausted at the mere thought of it?
Most kids today can text faster than a woodpecker with ADHD. But do they have the relational skills that will bring them ultimate satisfaction and fulfillment? In It's Your Kid, Not A Gerbil, internationally known family expert and father of five Dr. Kevin Leman reveals the secrets to:
battling the 'busy hands are happy hands' myth
choosing activities wisely
creating an atmosphere you kids will love to come home to
capturing your child's heart...for a lifetime
Isn't it time to trade in the stress-filled SUV miles for peace-filled hours? The result will be happier, more confident and secure children...and a less-stressed you.
If you feel like me and at times feel like you've reached the end of your rope in how to deal with your kids, from school issues, homework, friends, social issues, technology challenges, and even how to balance it all from work to family time, then trust me, this IS the book for you. The best part is you can just dive right on in. Pick something that is relevant for you and your situation and see what the options are.
We loved the chapter dedicated to balancing work and family and it really hit home for us. The best part is defining what everything is worth considering the cost. To us, since the time with the kids are so limited, we have vowed to do everything we can to show them how important they are to us and even in looking back, we can see our kids greatest memories are the ones that showed we took time out for them, not how much money we spent. That is priceless.
I received this book compliments of Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review and I can't wait to share this book with you. Highly recommended at 5 out of 5 stars and a must for any family to cope with the parenting techniques this generation needs to keep our kids happy, balanced and respected among their peers. Ready to get off the wheel?
