I’ve been sharing my thoughts about the book No More Perfect Kids by Jill Savage and Kathy Koch. You can read my full review of the book here. And you can preorder the book from Amazon here No More Perfect Kids: Love the Kids You Have, Not the Ones You Want . But if you wait until the book’s official launch in March, you can also get lots of bonus goodies when you purchase. So keep your eye out, and I’ll be posting more about that later.

I’ve enjoyed sharing what I’ve learned from No More Perfect Kids. I hope you’ll get the book for yourself and share with me what you’re learning. I’m going to wrap up with some of the best nuggets that have stood out for me, and then I’m going to tell you some of the great resources that are at the end of No More Perfect Kids.

Here are some of the things that stood out the most to me:
1. Communication is so very important.
2. My child- not the child of my imagination- is the child God gave me to parent.
3. Expecting perfection in my kids or in myself prevents me from having realistic expectations.
4. Children need to feel accepted and loved before they will listen to correction.
5. I need to be positive in my approach to correction, not critical.

At the end of the book are all kinds of goodies:
1. A list of feeling words to help you and your children communicate
2. Age appropriate tasks for kids
3. How to pray for your child using Bible verses (I love the concept of praying Scripture!)
4. Character qualities to develop in your children
5. Scriptural blessings to pray for your children
6. Recommended reading for your kids
There is also a Leader’s Guide if you would like to use this as a small group study.
