know the feeling. You got frustrated, desperate, or overwhelmed and you
reacted before you could think it through. Whether it’s a one-time
thing or it becomes a habit, we all parent in ways we don’t like. But it
doesn’t have to continue. Whether it’s bribery, yelling, counting to
three, or threats of punishment you didn’t mean to make, reacting never
feels good. But if you can learn to act with intentionality, you’ll feel
better about your choices and be grateful for the results.
Dr. Kathy Koch (pronounced "cook"), author of Screens and Teens and 8 Great Smarts,
will teach you proven strategies for training your child’s heart and
parenting in a way that honors God. She’ll help you move your child
from, "I can’t, I won’t," to "I can, I will, and I did." We can do
better than "Because I said so." or "No screen time for 3 days." We can
do better than mere behavior modification. We can change our children’s
hearts and teach them to do what is good, godly, and right even when
we’re not around. Once you’ve learned to put these motivation strategies
in place there’s no more need to nag, you’ll be astounded at what your
kids will do without being asked. Dr. Kathy doesn’t offer a quick-fix.
Starting with the heart is all about changing what children believe in
order to change their behavior. And learning to use this kind of
motivation takes effort, consistency, and strategy, but it works. And
it’s never too late! If you’re willing to commit to a little hard work
up front, you’ll enjoy your kids, your life, and yourself much more when
you learn to start with the heart.
I am so thankful I have been introduced to Kathy Koch’s writing recently- this book is a true and rare gem! I have read many parenting books, but Start with the Heart has had a greater impact on me than any other. I have underlined so many lines in this book, and I have returned to them many times.
I appreciate her writing style- it’s very personal and gracious. You will never feel guilty for how you have done things in the past, but you will feel empowered and motivated to make some positive changes in your relationship with your kids and the way you communicate with them. And you will gain specific strategies and phrases to use with your children to build them up and motivate them towards resilience, confidence, and character!
This book will never collect dust on my shelf. I know I will be turning to it many more times as I go through different phases of parenting!
This latest book from Kathy Koch does not disappoint. I am learning so much in each chapter. Her explanations of teaching, coaching, cheering on and refereeing as parents are really inspiring me to try to use each one in the appropriate circumstance.My favourite part is the practical steps at the end of each chapter so I can start to use the things I'm learning right away. A definite must read!
