Parenting is always a hot topic of our society. I can often be caught up in the ‘How I should be a parent’ and let it over complicate our lives. This year as a part of my goal to read more I wanted to make sure I read more than just fiction, so I have branched out a lot. I came across this book The Low Pressure Guide to Parenting Your Preschooler by Tim Sanford. Obviously the title alone pulled me in as I am all about finding lower pressure ways in my life, not to mention the current preschooler and toddler working his way right behind his brother.
This simple breakdown of what is most important in raising children and handling the spats that turn to tantrums seems so elementary, but a necessary reminder. As I currently have a 4 year old and 2 year old I can really see the need for this guide as a strong reminder of the things on my job description as a parent. I can also see great ways to relate this way of thinking to my life in general and other relationships.
Life can get so complicated and stressful that it is easy to slip into overdrive mode and making all the decisions, which only ends up causing more stress. The examples given throughout this book are real life conversations I have all the time, so I can easily see where I can make a few word changes in my conversation and make life so much less hectic.

I received my complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
