Disclosure: I received this book for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
Parenting is hard !!
Seriously ... I thought that my kids has some terrible 2's , HA !! This pre-teen adolescent nonsense is really trying my patience .. Was I this way with my Mom ?
I jumped at the chance to review this book. The Motivate Your Child Action Plan offers parenting advise, solutions, tips, and references Biblical scriptures as well as real life scenarios.
I get this one a lot.. "Why are you so hard on me? Why can't I just have an iPhone like my friend?"
Really? Because you're 12 maybe? I don't consider this suffering. I think more like "Wait until your Father gets home" as suffering.. At least, that's what worked for me.
I think sometimes my kids find that hard work = suffering. Maybe they feel that way when I ask them to volunteer when they don't want to. I want them to know, there is a world outside of their peripheral vision . I want them to try, fail, and try again.
