I have two pretty different children. If you have more than one child yourself, I'm sure you can relate! One is shy around new people and takes a while to trust, while the other loves meeting new people and seems to know everyone! One has some difficulty controlling anger, and the other is pretty laid back and go-with-the-flow. One is fearful and timid to try new things, and the other will jump right in! One is motivated extrensically, while the other has an intrinsic motivation.
Both are wonderful! But they are different. So I selected this book to hopefully get some ideas on how to motivate the one who needs an extra push or two... :)
The title of the book caught my eye immediately, but I was even more excited when I saw the authors' names. Last year, I went to a parenting workshop based on their programs, and it was fantastic. I loved how practical it was, so I was hoping that this book would be the same. It didn't disappoint!
Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanna Miller have spent years helping parents cultivate a healthy conscience and a vibrant faith in their kids. Motivate Your Child is a straightforward guide to doing this at home. Every chapter includes practical examples of families applying the Bible to their current issues, such as backtalking or being mean to siblings. From the "Integrity Package" to the "The Family Challenge," they offer words to say, plans to implement, and ideas for working it out day by day.
