Parenting is hard! They say there is no instruction manual for parenting, but this book is a step in the right direction!
The Noteworthy Parenting book highlights how the author and her husband got on the same page by turning their parenting worries into plans. This fun and helpful book inspires parents to let go of perfection, sort through all of the advice, and create a roadmap of rules, routines, and goals that fit their unique family needs. Because a picture is worth a thousand words, the book contains over 90 illustrations which make this resource a fun, quick read for busy parents.
“This book is a wonderful resource for all parents. It’s a quick and easy read that isn’t intimating or overwhelming.”
“Forced me to think about issues that I haven’t thought about yet–but will eventually need to tackle. These issues include things like parenting in a technology- focused age, teaching basic life skills, e.g. finances, cooking, driving (and driverless cars!!!), etc. I haven’t thought about these things because they seem so far away, but it’s good to start thinking about them since many are topics that my parents didn’t have to worry about when I was growing up.”
“I like that this book really encourages you to come up with your own parenting plan. As we all know, there is not one right or wrong way to parent, so this sort of flexibility is nice to see. The author identifies various issues that parents encounter and helps us think through how we might personally handle certain situations by mentioning resources to draw from to guide our own plans. For example, we may look to our mom tribe, how we were personally raised, or an informative book or website to draw inspiration. We learn it’s alright to pull from various sources to come up with our parenting plans as opposed to the author just telling us that there’s one way things should be done.”
“This book is a great tool to get you thinking about and, helping you work through, many important parenting issues. I honestly have not even thought about most of the things she writes about, so it’s good to get them on my radar to ensure my husband and I aren’t caught off guard when the time comes.”
“I like the flexibility in this parenting method and the format and note sections make this an interactive read.”
