EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK::
MY THOUGHTS::Life has been challenging lately with the different personalities that my kids have shown. I have a new teenager (who is starting to show the attitude), a 10 year old ADHD very emotional child, and a defiant, stubborn 7 year old who is causing me to have LOTS of grey hairs. LOL I completely understand that all 3 have different needs depending on who they are and therefore no one size fits all attitude toward parenting works for them. Because of this I have been looking and getting advice from lots of different sources to see what might work in my home. I was excited to receive Parenting Through the Eyes of Lollipops by Jacqueline Pirtle to read and review.
It took me a while to actually have time to sit and read this book. I will admit that I was kind of skeptical going in as it seemed like the more I read, the more her ideology was in contrast to how I was raised and what I feel is the right way of parenting- that I am the parent and my kids are kids and must listen and follow my lead. Pirtle argues that children and their parents are equals in this life of parenting and there are times that one is the student and one is the teacher and vice-versa. It is a harmonious dance in which the child and parent are equal participants.
Yes parenting is part of a dance--- one that can be fun, harmonious and joyful. One that allows our children to become who THEY are and that reminds us as parents that our children are their own beings. Pirtle offers 3 pillars of beliefs that summarize her parenting advice--The Harmonious Dance, It is Never the Child, and The Love Cycle of Parenthood. The pillars offer joyful, energized ways to be a better parent and a better participant in whatever level of parenthood you are in (including before you conceive, when your child is a baby, young child, teenager and adult). They remind you to enjoy the role of being a parent to your greatest blessings.
I personally needed that particular reminder and I picked up several tidbits that I believe will help me in my parenting journey with the kiddos. Ideologies that will hopefully help bring back my joy as a mom and allow me to have a better relationship with my children.
Overall, I would recommend this book for ANY parent!
