Raising A Young Modern Day Princess by Doreen Hanna and Karen Whiting
Have you ever read a book that actually makes you feel worse about yourself and what you have done as a parent then when you began? I am a failure for my daughter, but it isn't too late.I loved this book, it made me stop and think of all the things I have not done for my daughter. I've tried to be a good mom and raise my daughter to love Christ and be the best daughter of God that she can be. I'm obviously lacking....
This book is comprised of ten chapters that talk about the Fruits of the Spirit and how to instill them in your young daughter. Topics are faithfulness, peace, Joy, goodness, gentleness, kindness, patience, and love. You start out by finding you daughters personality type, my daughter is social butterfly/ leader (she actually tied, didn't think that was possible with only few questions asked) She is the only girl in the family.
I love the set up of the book. each chapter focuses on an aspect of mother, a Princess attribute, and a Fruit of the Spirit. The authors share stories from their life, talk to the dads and what they can do for their daughters. give mothers ideas for activities to do with the daughters. Activities are listed that meet every personality type of our girls.
This book is Christian based with activities ranging from singing praises to the Lord to crafts and just having a good uplifting time together. All along to your daughter how to act like a daughter of God. If you are not christian but still want to instill good character into your daughter you can still use the ideas in the book.
I need to go and get the book Raising a Modern-day Princess, geared towards older girls. I would like to compare how the two are similar and different.
I received this book free from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
