Discover Your Personal Parenting Style
Most parenting books present a cookie-cutter approach--which may or may not apply to all personalities and family dynamics. Mothering From Scratch shows mothers how to develop their own style that helps them be the best mom for their kids and restores the joy of mothering.
Full of solid biblical truth, this book encourages moms to
• explore their personalities and examine their strengths and weaknesses in order to find what works for them
• tap into the resources surrounding them and get mentoring and support from other moms
• push past the fear of change or doing it wrong and allow room for grace in their mothering
Melinda Means and Kathleen Helgemo provide a flexible, customizable approach to help moms discover their optimal parenting style.
