Regret Free Parenting:Raise Good Kids and Know You're Doing it Right by Catherine Hickem

Catherine Hickem is a licensed psychotherapist and founder of the organization Intentional Moms, and most importantly a mother of two!  In this book she encourages mothers to be intentional.  She writes about purpose, about being intentional, about raising kids who are emotionally intelligent, about how to survive those bumpy teenage years!

Each chapter focuses on a different area, but through it all Hickem is encouraging and offers biblical wisdom with practical insight and tips on how to become a regret-free parent. 

What I Thought
I'm not a mother, but wanted to read this book for preparation of when that day comes!   This book is absolutely chock-full of great nuggets of wisdom and lots of things to ponder.

I appreciated all of her thoughts and biblical backing.   She never promises that being a parent is easy...just the opposite in fact!  Hickem provides many examples from her life, both as a parent and examples from some of her clients.  She points out successes, and scenarios that could have been handled differently.  However, in those situations she provides insight on how to resolve the issue. 

I found a lot of things that I could use in the classroom as a teacher! 

Definitely a great book for parents who want to do a great job raising their children...of any age!
