Being a parent, I tend to take advantage of opportunities to improve my parenting skills. Therefore, when Kate Battistelli’s book, Growing Great Kids became available for review through CWA, I immediately signed up.
Kate does a great job of introducing the idea of how to mine the greatness in your child. God has created each one of our children for a specific purpose and plan. As parents, we need to help our children discover the jewel inside them. I love how Kate expresses this, God provides the experiences to cut and polish the gifts and calling in our kids and begin making it into a beautiful gem.
The book is not a step-by-step guide to perfect kids, there is no such thing, but Kate does provide practical tips and applications for applying our parenting manual – the Bible – into the lives of our kids.
Growing Great Kids is a fabulous book that I would eagerly recommend for all parents. At the end of each chapter Kate provides questions to think about and a prayer. It is a wonderful and insightful book to help you mine the jewel within your child.
