Book Review: Motivate Your Child

Motivate Your Child

(Coming out of my extended blogging break for a brief moment to post this much overdo book review. 🙂 )

From Book Description

Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanna Miller have spent years helping parents cultivate a healthy conscience and a vibrant faith in their kids. Motivate Your Child is a straightforward guide to doing this at home. Every chapter includes practical examples of families applying the Bible to their current issues, such as backtalking or being mean to siblings. From the “Integrity Package” to the “The Family Challenge,” they offer words to say, plans to implement, and ideas for working it out day by day.

With God’s help, it is possible to train and direct a child’s internal motivation-motivation that will serve them for the rest of their lives.

My Comments

Motivate Your Child is a very helpful and encouraging book. Whether you are a new parent or have been around the block once or twice, you are sure to glean a few valuable tips and ideas. I love how the authors focus on the inner workings of the heart and soul in order to help parents to parent from a place grounded in faith and prayer. In particular, I loved the emphasis on teaching children to use their conscience. This is not something I remember reading or hearing about in other parenting books.

Overall, of the ideas were reminders and some ideas are ones we already incorporate in our family; however, reminders are never a bad thing – especially when it comes to parenting. 🙂

I absolutely recommend this book and give it four (4) stars.
