When I was approached about doing a review for this book, Say Goodbye to Whining, Complaining and Bad Attitudes in You and Your Kids! I had to smile..because I already owned the book.
Like most Moms when I start to feel my methods aren’t working, I turn to my family and friends to ask how to ‘fix’ my kids. I have an 11 yr old going on 16, a 9 yr old who thinks she’s a queen, and a 4 year old who thinks (and sometimes does) have me a bit wrapped around his pinkie. Now don’t get me wrong over all my kids are pretty well behaved.. but there are days I am ready to throw in the towel – and I overreact and answer their bad attitude with one of my own. So when a friend recommended this book I thought I’d give it a shot.
From the Inside Flap
Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller offer a thorough program for establishing honor as a basis of family life ? not just children honoring parents, but parents respecting children and children honoring each other. Even if honor seems a long way off in your household, you will find practical suggestions here to bring that goal a little closer ? suggestions for kids of all ages. Honor is the biblical value that will bring about good behavior. It?s more than just changing what kids do; it?s changing the deeper issues of the heart that triggered the behavior.
