Check it Out! We all know that kids don't come with instructions. IF only!!
As a parent to three teenagers I have had talks with my kids on many occasions about how I am just winging it! I have for many years told my kids that I have this toolbox that only has my 18 years of parenting experience and a couple of bits of advice from parenting books inside. When problems or other situations arise I have to decide which tools to use. I don't always get it right, but I do my best and I am always going to try until I get us all through it. That is after all what parenting is all about.
I recently was invited to review the book 8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids by Dr. Todd Cartmell and my first thought was, hey another tool to add to my toolbox! Boy was I right!
This book is broken down into 5 chapters that are short. At the end of each chapter is a practical tip that reiterates the main point of the chapter. These chapters are super easy to read and understand and focus on 8 simple tools that will help bring you closer to your kids.
Talking, Listening, Influencing, Connecting, Teaching, Encouraging, Correcting and Leading
These are indeed super simple tools that are effective in building a stronger relationship with your kids and for bringing your family closer to each other and to God's love. We can change the course of our children's lives with the power of our words.
Words are so powerful and are so long lasting. Choosing your words, choosing your tools is important in raising kids.
I got so much from this book that I can add to my parenting toolbox and highly recommend it to any parent, new or not. We are never to old to learn new tools and Dr. Cartmell's 8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids is an easy way to learn.
