You certainly need to find people you can trust to recommend books to you – and when you do, always read them!
Not many books make me laugh, cry, and challenge me on almost every parenting area. And also one that makes me re-place my hope in God because I know this parenting journey is tough and I can’t do it on my own. Love That Boy is a must read!
I love history and the American presidency, so when I knew that was a backdrop to this parenting book, I knew it would be a winner. And it didn’t disappoint.
You don’t have to have children with special needs in order to gain insight into your children through this book. But, every parent will gain insight into themselves, their children, and even their parents. They will be able to see how other parents parent through new lenses. You will learn what is important to you in how you raise your kids – even if you didn’t know it in the first place.
The only sad thing about this book: there was no hint of Christ. And even though I can’t save my children, I can’t make them place their hope in God – I can aim for that end. I can show them the gospel. And I do believe, if I didn’t have that hope – then this book and the whole parenting journey would be incredibly futile and depressing.
