Regret Free Parenting

Raise Good Kids and Know You're Doing It Right

by Catherine Hickem, LSCW



Review:

A few weeks ago I stumbled across a book that can help us to parent our children better. This book was written by a mom about being a mother. Hickem has written the book that not just mothers but all parent's should read. We all know there are some single father's out there raising children that could benefit from a terrific book too. So I would recommend this be for any parent.

The author focuses on seven principles that we as parent's should focus on while raising our children. Hickem writes about her own experiences in motherhood as well as mothers she has ministered to in her work as a therapist, counselor and pastor's wife. This book is a very powerful book and has a convincing message and the book was written so that it is easy to read and follow. The author doesn't miss a step as she walks you through each stage of childhood from birth to married children. She does however focus on the critical years "the tweens" she also gives us reassurance and faith points (words of wisdom) as well as a Regret Free Parenting Plan in the back of the book where you can write your goals and fill in the blanks to the questions she has written. The author's goal is to help us parent's to realize that in order for us to raise "good" kids, we must start by focusing on ourselves. She reminds us that how successful we are as a parents depends on our relationship with God and how imperative it is.


I personally do not agree or like the title of the book the author chose "Regret Free Parenting" as it is a false statement because we are not perfect and we will make mistakes or wish we had done something differently (which is regretting) . However with the help of Catherine Hickem and her pointing us into the right direction we will hopefully make less mistakes after reading the book than if we hadn't read it at all.

With this said I do Highly Recommend this book to any parent.
