We brought sweet perfect Scarlette home and quickly realized – they’re leaving us alone to take care of this human. No more nurses, no more doctor check-ups, that’s it! We’re on our own! Taking care of basic needs, easy peasy. I had that completely under control. But how in the world do you raise a children to be kind? Caring? Loyal? Full of integrity? God-fearing?
Clearly, I’m only a few years into this parenting gig. I learned pretty quickly I had no idea what I was doing and needed as much help (i.e. parenting books) as I could find. I’ve rounded up my favorite reads to date with my personal review of each. Parenting books are EVERYWHERE with everyone claiming they have it all figured out. Trust me when I say, I no more have this figured out as I did the day we brought our girl home. But I won’t ever stop trying!
Now is a great time for a disclaimer. No one book is going to provide you with all of the answers to raising godly children. We firmly believe you can and should utilize as much wisdom as offered to you, and pull from it what works for YOUR family. What works for us, may not work for you. We understand that. We just want to offer the ones that have been impactful for our family (affiliate links are included for your convenience).
