Hand In Hand Parenting
I think all parents will agree that raising kids comes with challenges. Some are minor and easy to navigate through and others are much more difficult and can leave us feeling defeated. We have had our share of issues to work through with the kids from behaviour, sleep and sibling rivalry - just to name a few.
I have read many different books written by different "experts" - all who have different styles and views on parenting and how things should happen. While I have been able to relate to some of what I have read, nothing has had me nodding my head in agreement quite like Listen: Five Simple Tools To Meet Your Everyday Parenting Challenges.
"Listen" is a great book, and all about Listening. There are different scenarios outlined in the book, and different ways of achieving the desired outcome.
After reading through the first few chapters, I realized that it was very similar to how I try and parent on my good days, and that I needed to bring that way into my bad days also. It also helped me stop beating myself up about the bad days.
Patty Wipfler is the author, and she has also launched a series of videos to go along with the book. If you are struggling with parenting challenges I urge you to check out the book or the videos; and remember, we all struggle with parenting at certain times - you aren't alone.
