Parenting In The Real World – Book Review

Parenting In The Real World

Everyone has their own opinions on the best ways to parent – much like everyone has their own way of boiling an egg. Whatever it takes to get the job done – and no way is any better than other. But, it never hurts to gain perspective on someone else’s method. I had the chance to review the new book, it’s full title being “Parenting In The Real World; The Rules Have Changed. Drop The Guilt. Handle Any Parenting Situation in 7 Simple Steps.” A mouthful-but isn’t that what parenting is? Continue reading “Parenting In The Real World – Book Review”

How To Raise Great Kids Book Review

 

 

This is a sponsored review of a book I received for free, and decided to share with my readers by doing a review. All opinions are 100% mine, and not swayed in any way! This post does contain affiliate links, by which I receive a very small percentage of sales, but does not affect price in any way for a buyer.

Everyone has a different parenting style…

And when you’re a new parent, it’s sometimes hard to come up with stuff! That’s one reason I was intrigued, and welcomed the opportunity to check out, “How To Raise Great Kids; 101 Fun & easy Ideas” by Jim Gromer. Our son is only 17 months at this time, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t mentally preparing for the years to come!

A review of the book, "How To Raise Great Kids, 101 Fun & Easy Ideas"

Engaging your child…

This book is full of ideas on engaging conversation, and learning experiences. Now while everyone may have a different approach to certain subjects, such as “learning colors,” or “picky eaters”, but I found Jim’s suggestions to be refreshing, and sensical. There’s so much information floating around out there, on the topic of “How to Parent.” It doesn’t actually hurt to read what others suggest.

This book has a lot of great suggestions for making most learning experiences a game. Songs for hand washing, how to leave appropriate voicemails, the suggestions are awesome for teaching on their level (per appropriate age for the lesson).

How To Raise Great Kids isn’t just about games, but gives some insight on tackling real life situations, like bullying and finances. Again, we all have different viewpoints on these. But it doesn’t ever hurt to see how a fellow parent is doing things. And honestly, when it comes to temper tantrums, most parents need all the help they can get!

 

A level of honesty…

What i really enjoyed most about this read, was the level of honesty within the book. How To Raise Great Kids was written by a father of 4, and I feel the author really has some truth behind his recommendations. Some of these tactics, I really can’t wait to try with my son with the time comes.

There’s also awesome tips for parents themselves, for their health and well-being. Because you must take care of yourself. Or how can you take care of your children?

Available on Amazon

You can get a copy of this great book on Amazon, available on Prime (which is awesome!) and see for yourself! I really enjoyed reading it, and gaining some perspective on how this Dad approached certain subjects, like Internet usage and “bad language.”


Also, be sure to check out the official Facebook page for this book, as well as Jim Gromer’s website!

And of course, a very special thank you to Jim for giving me this book, that I know I will be re-reading often when I need to come up with ways to handle special circumstances!
