Recently, I had the privilege of being apart of the launch team for Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, written by Kristen Welch. You may have heard of her....just scroll through Facebook and momma's everywhere have shared her post from her blog http://wearethatfamily.com/. Her writing is real on her blog and in her book.
There are books for raising babies, raising toddlers, but there are very few books about raising kids. I need wisdom for raising these humans that call me mom and Kristen Welch provides that through this book. There is so much in this book that excites me, validates, me, encourages me, and convicts me.
In a society where everyone wins it is hard to rear kids that don't feel entitled. Kristen shares her struggles, her triumphs, and charges us to parent upstream.
As I read, I felt like I was having coffee with a best friend who is knee deep in this parenting mess, just like me and together we wrestled parenting topics. I love seeing how other people do life and she offers excellent application ides to help raise less entitled kids and more grateful ones. And she moves me to be a better mom.
If you are knee deep in parenting this book releases tomorrow. I can't recommend this enough and I know I will read it again and again.
My one word this year is transform and this book will help me transform my parenting.
