Publisher's Description

Perfection is the enemy of parenting. Jim Daly sees and hears from mothers and fathers trying hard to pursue perfection. They listen to the best experts and read all the right books. When someone gives them a "World’s Best Mom" or "No. 1 Dad" coffee mug, they want it to be true. And they want their children to pursue perfection, too.

It’s admirable for parents to be the very best moms and dads they can be for their children. But sometimes in so doing, they leave grace behind—both for themselves and their children. Jim believes that our quest for perfection, a quest that he believes is particularly strong among Christians, runs counter to God’s own boundless gift of grace. We can become Pharisaical parents, quoting endless rules and holding everyone to impossible standards. But God doesn’t want us, and our kids don’t need us, to be perfect. As parents, we’re called to simply do our best. And when we fail—which we will—we’re called to try again tomorrow.

Though he’s the President of Focus on the Family, Jim does not promise that his book will be a catalyst for a perfect family. But it can help point the way toward a good family—one that feels safe and warm; one filled with love and laughter. This book will encourage mothers and fathers to embrace the messiness of parenthood and show grace to their own less-than-ideal children. Jim, through his own experiences, expertise, and array of stories, will lead both moms and dads to a better understanding of what being a good family is all about.

    Written by: Jim Daly with Paul Asay

    I don't always agree with Focus on the Family and the things that they do, but everything that I have read from Jim Daly in the past has made me respect him as a person. I was happy to have the chance to read and review When Parenting Isn't Perfect because I was interested in hearing more of his thoughts on parenting.

    Who This Book is For:

    This is a great book for parents in all stages of the game. This is especially good for perfectionists.

    What I liked:

    This book is full of stories that keep it interesting and real.

    This book doesn't give a person permission to let go and stop trying in their parenting, it simply encourages them to stop trying so hard to be perfect.

    Jim Daly shares a lot about using grace with kids, about not expecting them to be perfect.

    This book helps parents know that they do not have to be perfect, and that their kids do not have to be, either.

    What I didn't like:

    I don't agree with Jim Daly 100% in regard to all that he shares, but there is not too much that bothered me.

    I do not support spanking, and there is a tiny mention of it that I feel could have been left out of the book.

    My conclusion:

    Overall, I think that this is a good book.

    I give When Parenting Isn't Perfect 4 out of 5 stars.

    I received this book free to review from BookLook. The opinions expressed in this review are my true thoughts and feeling regarding this book. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
