Regret Free Parenting Raise Good Kids & Know You're Doing It Right
by: Catherine Hickem, LCSW
Moms have a list of worries a mile long about their parenting. Catherine Hickem shows you how to build companionship, trust, live peacefully and most of all achieve intentional parenting.
This book wasn't really for me and my family. It mentions that fathers are followers of mothers in parenting and I do not agree with that statement. It is possible that in some households that is true but not in my home. I can see this in a home that the mom is staying home with the children while the dad is working full time, however in our home we both work full time jobs and I work many weekends, leaving Dad to get kids to sports, birthday parties, etc. I don't feel that one parent is the leader of parenting but feel that parenting is a team event. Yes, there are many statements made by Hickman that make you stop and pause to think. I did get a few tidbits of good advice but overall the book wasn't really for me. I am impressed with how Hickman's children speak very highly of their mother, which leads me to believe that she did a good job parenting them and that is all any parent really wants is to be able to look back on their adult children and think they did a good job.
