"Regret Free Parenting" by Catherine Hickem, LCSW

Parenting with no regrets seems like a dream but can be achieved. Catherine Hickem, LCSW, a mother herself, has taken her experience and written Regret Free Parenting: Raise Your Kids and Know You're Doing it Right. The book aims to equip moms raise children from a Christian perspective, which can be hard given how much our world has changed over the years.

"While mothering is the hardest job we'll ever undertake, our Creator designed it to be the most rewarding, most powerful, and closest to grasping God's heart." - Catherine Hickem, LCSW

The book is based on the 7 principles the author finds that works best when raising Christian children, all of which begin with the parents and their relationship with God. Through these, the author brings to light the differences in what and how we may have been taught as a child and the approaches that we should use to teach our children. This book guides me in the right direction to achieve that. There are also "Faith Points" throughout the book of Bible verses to inspire and comfort you. 

I enjoyed reading the great information and tools in this book and hope to guide my children to be the person God wants them to be. Hickem has written an excellent work that can be enjoyed by parents, soon to be parents or anyone considering children.

Disclosure: I have been provided a copy of this book without charge by the publisher through Booksneeze.com. All opinions are mine.
