 Parenting comes with stresses that can make the most laid-back among us feel irritable, frustrated, and angry. Even parents who sincerely love their children sometimes use the wrong methods of anger and frustration in an attempt to control their children. But angry parenting doesn’t just weaken relationships between parents and their children; it can, over time, destroy them. Few parents set out to become yelling meanies who no longer enjoy their children. Yet many feel stuck, unable to pull themselves out of their ugly habits. This book:
  • Provides practical and biblical solutions to get to the other side of the issue
  • Gives hope and freedom from the tyranny of stressed-out and angry parenting
  • Offers solutions that are ideal for any family.
If anger is in your home — even in small ways — this book is for you. It is time to replace that anger with something more powerful: patience and peace. Israel and Brook share candidly from their experience as parents.

My Impressions: 

I love parenting books that offer sound biblical advise for raising your kids, by people who have lived through it, experienced it, fumbled and failed and then found what really works to make a change for the family-that's this book. The author does an amazing job offering parenting tips that stand on truth for correcting and bringing up your kids. There are numerous tips on how to end that ongoing power struggle so many of us parents go through by breaking through pride and anger.  Will everything in this book apply to your family, probably not, but the parts that do are worth the price of this book.

For me personally, I am a single mom of 5 kids, so I tend to get a little stressed out and impatient at times, which ca lead to some angry parenting, even on small scales. This book helped me realize where  I was going wrong and how a few tweaks can put an end to so many of the struggles I was having with my kids. Do I still have power struggles, sure, but not nearly like I was having or on the same level. I easily can recommend this book to help out parents in need!
