8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids Book Review #8SimpleTools #FlyBy

I received 8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids free to facilitate this review. Affiliate links may be in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids by Dr. Todd Cartmell is a practical guide to strengthening your relationship with your children. It features 8 tools: talking, listening, influencing, connecting, teaching, encouraging, correcting and leading. Each tool has 5 tips that delve deeper into it, with each tip section having roughly 3 pages that show how to develop this tool in your own parenting strategy. At the end, this book also has a helpful Summary of Tips and Notes that cross-reference with scripture and other texts.

This book is easy to read and has wonderful advice on the parenting front. I loved how short and simple each chapter was to read and even in the busiest of schedules I was able to squeak in a chapter or two since they are only 3 pages long. This advice is very solid and useful. In our everyday busy schedules nowadays we get caught up in so many other things and don't actually take the time to listen to our children. Their thoughts and feelings are just as important, if not more so, than our own and we need to set aside time for them. We need to connect with them in a good way and not only talk to them, but listen intently to them too. With positive behavior, good example and respect you can create good habits for both you and your children that will stay with them for years to come. This book has tools to show you how to be a better parent. By adding these 8 Simple Tools to your parenting toolbox I believe your parenting journey will be more successful. I know that these simple tools have already helped me!
