Parenting. Every parent want to know if they are doing it right. But, every parent and every child is different. The Christian Mama’s Guide to Parenting a Toddler is not just another parenting book. It is a book that recognizes and understands there are no fix-all solutions for parenting, but through love, prayer and humor, even the terrible twos can be an enjoyable experience.
As the parent of a two year old, I enjoyed this book for many reasons. It made me laugh and assured me that my child is not abnormal and I am not the only parent who struggles with these issues. The chapters are short and sweet. Instead of providing a “do this and then this result will follow” type of book, the author give several lists of suggestions about things that might help in a given situation. The topics covered ranged from food battles to potty training, tantrums to taking care of yourself. There is even a chapter for dads and advice on getting ready for siblings to enter the picture.
Overall, this was a fun and realistic look at parenting. And being written by a Christian woman who is a mom of three, you know the stories she tells and advice she gives come from first experience. I certainly came away with a few different things to try with my two year old.
I was given a copy for review by Book Sneeze. All opinions are my own. I was not required to wrie a positive review.
