I was given an advanced copy of Motivate Your Child for review. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links. See my disclosure for more information.
A couple week ago I shared about a new parenting book I’ve been reading, Motivate Your Child: A Christian Parent’s Guide to Raising Kids Who Do What They Need to Do Without Being Told. You will be happy to know this book is now officially available for purchase! If you didn’t pre-order, get your copy soon.
Reading this book has been an interesting journey so far. It’s always great to read a parenting book and realize you’re doing many things right…and humbling when you recognize areas in which you need to make some changes. For me, I’m learning that I remind my children too often.
It’s not helpful for them, and sets the stage for nagging down the road.
I’m learning so much. About the things I want to continue in my parenting journey. And things that I need to stop, or change a bit, so my younger ones may benefit.
I want my words to speak life into my children’s hearts. I want them to know and give respect. I want them to crave God’s approval, not man’s. I want to give them tools to navigate this life well. And that can’t happen if I’m too harsh, or too giving, or nagging, or doing everything for them. Like all things in life, they need balance. They need a balanced mom.
About The Book
Standing on Biblical principals and teachings, Motivate Your Child: A Christian Parent’s Guide teaches how to parent in a way that builds strong internal motivation in children. This is a practical book that gives you real-life examples, and real-life solutions.
About The Authors
Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller are the founders of the National Center for Biblical Parenting and the Biblical Parenting University. They have authored numerous books, cirricula and programs designed to strengthen our families.
What To Expect
- Examples on how to parent in a way that builds our children’s internal motivation
- Ways to energize your parenting spiritually with fun and creativity
- how to help our children respond to mistakes instead of resulting to blaming, defending or justifying.
If you want to create an atmosphere in your home that encourages responsibility, self motivation, diligence and strong relationships, I recommend you get a copy of Motivate Your Child. You won’t be disappointed! Even if you don’t implement every aspect of this parenting style, you are sure to learn ways of improving the relationship with your children and increasing their self motivation.
And stick with it! The beginning of the book is a little cerebral, laying the scientific and Biblical foundations that support this wonderful parenting method. But once you understand the why, they give you the how – and that is well worth the wait.
Feel free to comment with any questions you may have, if you are unsure this book is for you. I’d hate for you to miss out on this wonderful resource.
