The BEST book I have ever read on parenting!

How We Love Our Kids: The Five Love Styles of Parenting

I have always known that the actions of my parents, or lack of their parenting, has had an effect on me today and the way I parent my children. I never truly realized to what extent until I picked up this book and started to read it.

I have seen myself in these pages... I see my children in these pages... and I have seen my parents in these pages. I feel as though I have been given a gift, a gift that has allowed my eyes and mind to be opened to the wisdom of parenting I have never known before.

I thank you, Milan & Kay Yerkovich, for your honest, and for your words. I know that I am now equipped with the information I will need until my children are grown and out of our home.

I love how they break down examples of each type of child... their demeanor, their needs, and their fears. After they break them down into a type, they break the sections down into age groups, so you can see exactly what your child needs from you at the stage of life they are in. GENIUS!

I always hand books on after I am finished reading them, but this is going to be a book that will stay on my book shelf for many many years to come.

I HIGHLY recommend any and all parents to read this book!

You can read a preview of the book on Amazon here

I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
