 Motivate Your Child

There has been such excitement in the launch of this new parenting book by: Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RS, BSN.  The full title of the book is "Motivate Your Child: A Christian Parent's Guide to Raising Kids Who Do What They Need to Do Without Being Told."  The book comes with an Index and a Scripture Index in the back so that you can easily access information or refer back to what scripture was referenced. 

The book acts like a guide as it is described, but it is not one of those parenting books that tells you how to raise your child and makes you feel like a failure.  Instead, the book emphasizes what the authors call heart parenting, where you reflect on what values are important to you in your family.  It then grows from that and helps you focus on each of your children and how you can reach their hearts to motivate them, instead of using anger.  The book uses many examples of different families, age groups and behaviors and how to lovingly correct them.  

I couldn't wait to get this book to read.  I enjoyed that it is from a Christian parenting perspective, and how I was able to read along in my Bible with all of the wonderful scripture that is quoted in this book.  The introduction and chapter one were slow to start but once I got to chapter two, I could not put the book down!  It felt like the authors knew exactly what I was going through as a parent.

Motivate Your Child describes the many different ways parents can become stressed from generational yelling to all the newness of becoming a parent and not knowing exactly what to do.  In turn, parents react to the stress in anger because the frustration becomes too much.  I don't think any parent wants to yell at their child or act in anger to get their child to listen.  This book is such a blessing because it takes away any kind of anger and has you commit to what the root of the problem is in your individual child, and how to internally motivate them.

I would highly recommend this book to any parent or grandparent.  It has taught me how to calmly reason with my children while maintaining a discernment for discipline.  The lessons learned in this book are not a quick fix solution, but more of a putting the time in your child now so that  they know how to distinguish right and wrong for the rest of their lives.
