Book Review: How We Love Our Kids

Do you ever feel like, as a parent, you are messing up big time with your kids?  If we are honest with ourselves, we will see that we do make mistakes as parents, but those mistakes are fixable.

In their book, How We Love Our Kids: The 5 Love Styles of Parenting, Milan and Kay Yerkovich offer hope to parents.  In this book, they describe five ways we parent our children and why we parent that way.  With each parenting style, the Yerkovich's offer suggestions on how to overcome problems that arise from being that type of parent.  They then go on to discuss the types of children and how to best parent them. 

This is not a "do this and you will be the greatest parent" guidebook. It is simply a book that teaches parents to understand before reacting.  Parents must understand why they parent they way they do, and they must understand what is really behind the behavior of their children.  Doing both of these, encourages the authors, will strengthen the family relationship.

I highly recommend this book to parents who are eager to better the relationships in their home.  I enjoyed reading this book and have already begun to use what I have learned from it.

I received a free copy this book from the publisher for the purpose an honest review.
