Parenting Book Challenge Update – Parenting On Your Knees: Prayers and Practical Guidance for the Preschool Years

Tagged Under :

Well, the website that I was doing this challenge on has since disappeared, but I’m still going to try to read 6 to 8 parenting books anyways. Because while I like reading, these challenges really push me to make time for it and get me reading perhaps some new and different books that I may not have read before.

So I just finished up my third book, Parenting on Your Knees: Prayers and Practical Advice for the Preschool Years by Vicki Tiede. This was another free Kindle download because when I see a book to download for free, it’s hard to resist downloading anything that even sounds remotely good. You find some good ones and you find some not so good ones. Just part of the process. It’s currently $4.99 Kindle, $13.49 paperback, or free on Kindle Unlimited.

I will have to be honest here. I only found this book to be so so. There were some parts of it I really liked. I thought the prayers Parenting On Your Knees: Prayers and Practical Guidance for the Preschool Yearswere well written and for the most part, found the chapters on character encouraging and helpful. However, once I got into the chapters on development, social skills, and behavior, I was less impressed. Don’t get me wrong, I agree with some of the advice. But what I don’t like is when people take advice that’s neither here nor there and attach it to the Bible as the right thing to do. Example: how to potty train. The Bible really doesn’t give a lowdown on the way to potty train as long as you’re not sinning in the process. I also didn’t like the end about salvation. It was definitely decision theology and it totally neglected the power of infant baptism. So overall, I’d probably not recommend it.

3 more to go! Oh and Happy Independence Day if you live in the States! We enjoyed a low-key day at home here, with blue Jell-O in red Solo cups. It was all good though, it allowed me to get caught up some on my housework and to finish reading this book!
