    I have read lots and lots of parenting books. Sleep books, discipline books, you name it. I appreciated bits and pieces from each of them but nothing really clicked. Until this book. From day one, I read things that struck a chord with me. I loved how the author explained all of her reasoning. There are so many parenting books that lay out a list of "donts" but either don't explain alternatives or explain why those things are detrimental to our relationships with our children.

After reading a borrowed copy, I bought this book. I now use it as a reference book, much as I did with Dr. Sears' Baby Book when my kids were babies. At 2 and not-quite-5, I have many challenges ahead and I know this book will help me navigate. Side note: I am Jewish, but I think this book would be a real asset to any parent. There's so much we can all relate to in her compassionate, gentle parenting.

    A Jewish friend lent this to me and I wish I had my own copy because there is so much I wanted to underline. I may actually go buy this for myself because I'll probably want to go back through it from time to time. It is definitely geared towards parenting the younger years, but the concept and values can carry over into any age. She does mention pre-teens and teens and their more unique situations, which I appreciate.

I've been waking up every morning with the mindset of PURPOSELY parenting, not just going through the day haphazardly.

    Lots of unsupported assertions about the way we/kids are now, versus the good old days. Lots of examples of times that the author's kids or parents did something amazing(!) without much deep reflection on why. Lots of sometimes-relevant examples of how great(!) heroes from the Torah are. Plenty of examples of when parents told her what awful thing they do to their kids and she let them know that those things were indeed awful. (Spoiler alert - you shouldn't applaud every time your kid walks into Lots of unsupported assertions about the way we/kids are now, versus the good old days.

Plenty of examples of parents thanking her for changing their lives without deep (or any) discussion of the guidance she actually gave them. There are so many other useful books on parenting and morality. Spend your time on one of those.

    Tear jerker. Met Slovie at a private event for Jewish Sisters. She speaks with her heart. Her experiences ring true with all moms of today. Slovie allowed me to take steps to enjoy the moments with my daughter and I no longer feel burdened with my two year olds demands and needs. She keeps it very real. Must read for all moms and dads alike.

    Some gems, some clunkers, and some oversimplifications. One compelling anecdote I want to try: the author put her children to bed with a soothing prayer in which the children are given the chance to forgive all those who upset/wronged/frustrated them. Love that!

    I read this book not so much to learn anything new, but to be moved by the author's framing of certain good parenting mindsets and to expose myself to values that I want to continue to grow into.
