I read and absolutely LOVED Motivate Your Child. Motivate Your Child Action Plan is newly released and just as good! Though this book can stand alone, I definitely recommend using it with Motivate Your Child to get the full value of the insight given in these books.
I’ll be honest, the hardest thing about this book is changing MYSELF! But, I absolutely love the advice and examples given here. It all makes perfect sense, from a spiritual point of view, but also from a psychological point of view (as an Early Childhood Education Major). But, the hardest part is changing how I react to things, changing how I handle things….so really this book is a lot about changing YOU as a parent too, not just your child. I often find my children are a reflection of my parenting, so changing my own heart, helps change theirs.
The ACTION PLAN really helps break down the process and helps you implement these changes. Results can come almost immediately, but are obviously more obvious in the long term. For us, we are still working on this….as with any changes, it’s a life long commitment.
Action Plan is written in workbook style, so you can have plenty of space to write notes, form plans, reflect, etc.. Same as the first book, this is written from a Christian perspective and has many biblical references.
With the purchase of Action Plan you also receive 12 audio presentations by the author.
I highly recommend both of these books! I have suggested them to several people already outside of this review post!
