Parenting can be hard work, and our lives continue to get busier and busier. Is it possible to lighten the load but still raise great kids?
From his experiences as a dad as well as interacting with countless other parents, Jay Payleitner has gathered scores of secrets worth passing along--simple things veteran moms and dads have learned over the years. Things as simple as passing along truths during TV commercials. Or connecting with your children as you tuck them in at night. Or learning how to laugh over spilt milk.
Some of the ideas are old-school secrets that were passed from one generation to the next; others deal with issues that would have never crossed Grandma and Grandpa's minds. All of them are easy to implement.
This book is designed for a quick, breezy reading experience, letting parents pick and choose those ideas that will make their lives easier, their kids happier, and their futures even brighter.
DanniAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Good for young familiesMarch 14, 2017DanniAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3I think I have been trying to write this review for two weeks. Finding time to sit and write this review has been hard. I totally understand what it means to be a busy family. So when I saw Quick Tips For Busy Families by Jay Payleinter, I was like "give me please!!!"
This is a quick and easy read....thank goodness. It is broken down into 144 different tips ranging from astronomy, to how to explain 911, to camping trips, or even taking home leftovers that are offered.
Not all of these were tips, some were experiences he had with his own kids. While some of the tips were good, others left me scratching my head. Some I thought were just common sense like "Barge Into Their World" or "Explain 911".
I think over all this book is ok. It may be for parents of younger kids as just to prepare them for some of the crazy that could happen. Not all scenarios will fit with every family. So read the book and take what you will what is good for your family.
Kendra4 Stars Out Of 5helpful and funMarch 14, 2017KendraQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This book contains 144 short (one paragraph to two page) "parenting hacks" on just about every topic under the sun. Some of them are fun, some are serious, some spiritual, some silly...and in no particular order. The topical index at the back is very helpful if you want to find a tip for a specific situation. The author writes in a casual, humourous way and I enjoyed picking up the book when I had just a few minutes and not a lot of brain energy for reading. It is a great book for in the bathroom, on vacation, or before bed. One tip I was challenged by was "The Simple Compliment"--giving compliments without a negative follow-up. The example Payleitner gave was, "Thanks for watching the baby. But you left the lid off the diaper pail." There were lots of other helpful tips...the challenge will be remembering them when I need them!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my review.

Sneaky Strategies for Raising Great Kids: Quick Tips for Busy Families
by Jay Payleitner
This author has a number of good ideas for parents. The tips are 1 to 1 1/2 pages of reading. He gives examples of when parents need to be tough and went to withhold comments that are critical and impatient. The book would be a useful addition to a church library because he does have a one page tip entitled spiritual gifts.
16 gifts appear in four different chapters in the New Testament: 1 Corinthians 12, Romans 12, Ephesians 4, and 1 Peter 4. They are leadership, administration, teaching, knowledge, wisdom, prophecy, discernment, exhortation, shepherding, faith, evangelism, apostleship, service/helps, mercy, giving, and hospitality. Jay Payleitner reminds parents that is it their job to teach children to find their gifts.
He covers a number of problems parents experience today. One example is Potty Mouth. People in movies and TV shows use language that children repeat because they are taught when they see it. He hopes that when children have made an adult decision to stop smutty talk at home, they have the power to make the same decision with their friends and classmates.
Jay is a national speaker for conferences, retreats, and weekend services with messages on parenting, marriage, creativity, storytelling, and finding your life purpose. He and his wife, Rita, have raised five great kids, fostered ten babies, and are cherishing grandparenthood. He can be reached at jaypayleitner.com
