Parenting is tiring
It is not only a few parents whining about how tiring it is being parents. Both mentally and physically, it seems we are under a real world temptation in some other ways and occasions. Having to tell children every single things that they need to do will reduce our energy a lot. When will they be able to do everything by themselves, without being told to do so? My parents didn't talk too much to their children when we were young, but what happen to my children? I have never stopped talking to them from the sun rise to the sun set. For honest, I always try to reduce it all of the time and it works step by step. Parenting is Tiring without Children Motivation.
It is great for me to be able to take a part in the launch team of Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN books. Reading their books make me feel really thirsty of parenting knowledge. I feel that The last book, Family Toolbox, was really incredible to guide parents and their teenagers to have better relationship based on the Christianity.
Today, I would like give my personal words toward the newest book of Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN, Motivate Your Child: A Christian Parent's Guide to Raising Kids Who Do What They Need to Do Without Being Told. A couple of week ago I have posted the giveaway for the launching of the book. You should visit it to get more benefits on this fabulous book. There are still a couple of days before it is closed.
This book is really suitable with me who really struggle to motivate the children to act with their conscience. I wish that I have had the book earlier before I had children. Here are some points that we can learn by reading this book:
- How to build a strong conscience to strengthen internal motivation
- How faith changes kids in practical, down-to-earth ways
- Ways to help self-focused kids think of others
- A strategy to help kids who tend to blame, rationalize, or defend
- Ways to use consequences for heart change
- Specific heart-based strategies to develop responsibility and initiative
This book is divided into 2 chapters: Moral Development in Children and Spiritual Development in Children, each of which consist of 10 and 11 chapters. Reading those chapters, I feel very foolish to throw back what I have done. It seems that the writers are fortune teller that know what I have done so that the result is what happens right now. On the other hand, the book also gives some strategies on how to deal with the mistakes that I have done. It makes me think twice before I make the same mistakes.Motivate Your Child: A Christian Parent's Guide to Raising Kids Who Do What They Need to Do Without Being Told gives me a head up in front of my children.
I would like to recommend this book for all Christian parents without any exception. I can say how lucky you are reading this book. You might get the book in Amazon and National Center of Biblical Parenting. Please check them out by clicking the picture bellow:
