With each of these ‘Seven Mistakes’ I’m going to identify the incorrect thought or ‘Accepted Thought’ and then talk about how it leads to the parenting mistake. Then, I’ll show you what the Bible says about the misconception and hopefully— if you need it—help you change the way you think. Finally, I’ll give you some simple, practical step-by-step advice on how to turn the mistake around and do it right.
The fact that you’re reading this shows that you are a good parent who wants to get better. So you may already understand part or most of the material that we’ll be covering. However, read through this book carefully because if you change the way you think—and consequently the way you parent—in even just two out of these seven areas, you’ll notice a big change in your family.
Please remember as you continue reading that although this book is aimed at the parents of toddlers, I will also be talking about parenting children from birth through to school age.
