Book Review - The ''Perfect'' Parent
About the Book
Get ready for a parenting makeover!
If you're a parent today, you face extreme pressure to get everything exactly ''right''--a pursuit of perfection that probably makes parenting feel hard. It encourages you to worry about whether you re doing a good enough job, and to wonder if your kids will turn out okay.
In The ''Perfect'' Parent, Roma Khetarpal puts all of that agony to rest. She explains that the key to a fulfilling parenting experience is to stop chasing an ideal and instead use your inner perfection to nurture a strong, communicative connection with your children--which will lead them to be happy, think positive, and do good.
Drawing from the fields of personal growth and emotional intelligence and distilling cutting-edge scientific research, Khetarpal leads you through five communication tools designed to help parents strengthen their bond with their kids and handle the doubt, guilt, worry, and fear that often accompany the challenges of raising children. Along the way, she shares helpful, humorous real-life stories taken from the popular parenting classes she's taught for years, as well as easy-to-remember exercises--such as ''Dealing with the Feeling'' and ''Take Five''--for use in common family situations.
With this short, useful, and enjoyable guide, you will be equipped with the simple tools you need to build a relationship with your kids that lasts a lifetime.
Includes a ''Perfect'' parent toolbox!
My Take on the Book
Is there such a thing as a "perfect" parent? In my experience I would have to say no! I will say that parents try their best to be as good of a parent as they can be, but there are always shortfalls and issues that they have to deal with in their learning process. After reading this book I have to say that even though there are no "perfect" parents, the author provides amazing tools and resources for their readers as well as lessens the fears that many parents have about being that "perfect" parent. The book truly allows you to see the relationship that you have with your kids in a completely different way and opens the door to providing your kids with the things that they need to be happy. I appreciated some of the down-to-earth real world examples that the author shared and found the book to be a quick, interesting and valuable read.
