Regret Free Parenting: a Book Review

Since I have heard many good things about this book from a friend of mine, I was really looking forward to reading it.  I agreed to review it for Booksneeze in return for a free copy of the book.  

Isn’t that what we all want?  To raise our children without regrets?  Catherine Hickem encourages mothers that regret free doesn’t mean mistake free, and that every mother, even those without a Godly example to emulate, can raise great kids.  The author discusses so many issues that it’s definitely a packed, thought provoking read!    She talks about how valuable the role of motherhood is to every child, and encourages moms to recognize how much they need God’s help in this journey.  She empowers moms to be intentional about how they are raising their kids, to be a confident mom to the specific, unique children God has given you.    

One of the topics that I enjoyed most was knowing and affirming your child.  She encourages moms to really study their children, to have a deep knowledge of how God made them, and how they feel encouraged, pouring ourselves and our love into them throughout all stages of their lives.  She discusses all the stages of childhood, and how we can enjoy our children and love them unconditionally, even during those years that many parents are intimidated by, the teens.  This is a great book, full of sound advice and many reflection questions at the end of each chapter, designed to really get you thinking.  I enjoyed the scripture quotes sprinkled through out the book.

While over all, I really enjoyed this book, I do wish the author had covered more practical steps for putting her principles into practice.
