Motivating Children to Do the Right Thing without Being Told!
If you're looking for a new parenting tool to digest, you've gotta check out this book: Motivate Your Child: A Christian Parent's Guide to Raising Kids Who Do What They Need to Do Without Being Told. It is power-packed with advice for parents seeking to raise godly children that take the initiative to live with integrity. I'm only halfway through the book, and I've already dog-eared several pages for future reference. It's easy to read because it's filled with stories that parents will relate to - both everyday family stories and stories from the Bible. It's filled with strategies to help change children's behavior by reaching their hearts.
They focus their teaching around 4 components of conscience: doing the right thing, dealing with wrongs, being honest, and caring for others. I appreciated the checklist they included for helping to measure your child's progress in the four areas. I've been practicing their techniques for teaching kids to take initiative and reinforcing the importance of integrity. I can almost hear Turansky and Miller speaking into my life as I seek to nurture my 3 children. I'll post more as I finish the book.
