Parenting Through The Mirror – Add This To Your Parenting Arsenal

51aBbw-RY6L._AA160_As a parent, have you ever felt like a deer in the headlights? You find yourself asking questions like “Why do our kids act like that?” You’re sure you’ve done everything right. After all, you work hard, provide them a nice home and food on the table, furnish them with all the latest technology, and make sure they are safe. But instead of adorning gratitude and devotion, you get Miss Smart-mouth and Mr. Know-It-All. How can you encourage them to be grateful or at least respectful?

Parenting at times can be confusing, frustrating, and even defeating. That correction technic that worked so well on little Sally doesn’t even faze Jimmy, it only makes him more defiant. Where can you turn for help?

For decades people have asked us, “How do you do it? You have such an awesome family.” It is this question that encouraged me to write “Parenting Through the Mirror.”

In this book, I’ll share with you how I learned through the school of hard knocks, and the original book on parenting, that the best place to start fixing your kids is right in your own mirror. That’s right, the person staring back at you is the perfect place to start. You see, our children become who we are not what we tell them to be; and a lot of who they become is caught as much as taught. The good news is, you do possess the power to change you, it’s a choice. While we can never change another person, we can choose to change ourselves. The result is an empowered you who no longer has to react to whatever life and your kids throw your way, a new you who responds in a peaceful, loving and productive manner to all life’s challenges.

You’ll also learn you don’t have to be perfect to be a great parent. I dare you to take this “Mirror Challenge” I promise it will change your life and the lives of all those in your circle of influence and beyond.
