With All Due Respect by Nina Ruesner and Debbie Hitchcock

Book review of With All Due Respect by Nina Roesner and Debbie Hitchcock (Thomas Nelson) by papertapepins

With All Due Respect is a handbook for parents navigating the difficulties of the tween and teen years. Roesner and Hitchcock help parents identify what successful relationships look like and give easy-to-follow lessons in enforcing rules, communicating lovingly, resetting relationships, overcoming fears and exhaustion, and handling rebellion. Each day features a story every mom can relate to, down-to-earth questions to think about, and a prayer to launch an action plan. As a result, the reader gains new skills and perspective, greater strength, and an ability to live out faith daily as never before. With All Due Respect is for all parents seeking not only to connect more deeply with and positively impact their teens and tweens, but also to grow more deeply in faith through the process.

With All Due Respect is a good resource for moms who are struggling to set boundaries or connect with their tweens or teens. The chapters cover topics such as countering the culture, encouraging rather than nagging, being true to your word, coaching your kids on navigating conflict and responding with calm. It's written as 40 separate readings with a few questions to think about and a prayer. It's nothing earth shattering but they do have some good advice for dealing with issues that may come up with your teen or tween.

I received this book from Thomas Nelson and BookLook Bloggers for the purpose of an honest review. My opinion is my own.
