I'm always on the lookout for parenting books that inspire and guide me to be my best. To really engage me though, the book must acknowledge the challenges of parenting, and offer grace and understanding rather than judgment and perfection. This book met those expectations. Parenting with Heart encouraged me to strive for ‘good enough’ rather than unattainable perfection, and reminded me that I don't need to have all the answers. The book is written by professionals in the field and whilst at times it read like a text book, the authors made attempts to relate to the reader with examples from their own parenting. Rather than a list of do's and don'ts, the authors highlight that there is no perfect parenting model. They advocate for a long term view of parenting, and encourage the reader to accept that imperfection, pain and failure is inevitable. The authors invite the reader to address past hurts and heart issues in order to move forward to be their most authentic self and an engaged parent. Practical advice is given to put theory into action, and questions are provided for reflection at the conclusion of each chapter. Parenting with Heart is a practical tool and well worth the read.

This book was a beautiful writing and compelling to read with also encouraging to all the parent raise kids with your full heart not raise themselves based on yours rules instead of relationship, by accepting all your own childhood experiences the good and the one not so good as well, being teams work care for your marriage. I highly recommend to everyone must to read this book. “I received complimentary a copy of this book from Revell Read Books for this review”.
