The Ultimate Mom Challenge - Review

Remember when our kids were small and they thought we knew the answer to everything?   It was a great time for them, and us.  Fast forward a couple of years and the questions get harder, the attitudes get bigger and the answers aren’t always on the tip of our tongues.  (Or maybe it’s just me, but I seriously doubt it.)

Mary Kate Warner from Christianity Cove has put together a handy book entitled The Ultimate Mom Challenge to help us navigate the choppy waters of parenthood.   Now lets be honest, Mary Kate can’t possibly cover ever scenario you’ll encounter.  However, she’s done a really good job of laying out help for some of the big issues we’ll all face.

Topics that Mary Kate touch on are:

Strength
Courage
Gratitude
Bullying
Gossiping
Kindness
Patience
Lying
Anxiety
Arts
Respect
Clothing
Hurt
Electronics
Anger
Apologies
Fears
Sharing
Imagination
Peer Pressure
Positivity
Perseverance
Conversations (Sex, drugs and other hard topics)
Integrity
Toddlers & God
Toddlers Imagination

Topics can be covered in whatever order you choose.  So if little Suzy has suddenly gotten a bit sloppy with the truth, you can shoot straight over to Lying.

Each topic has an article written to you, Mom.  You might be thinking “Really, I thought this was to help me parent?”  Well, guess what, sometimes we need an attitude adjustment too, ahem.  The articles also explain the subject, have some quotes and experiences from other parents and of course Scripture.   Then you go into the seven mini-challenges where you help your child see the big picture, while working on incremental steps to grow in each area.

The great thing about The Ultimate Mom Challenge is you can use it in a proactive way and teach your kids BEFORE the topic is encountered, OR you can use it in a reactive way to address sudden issues, like bullying for example.  You can also revisit areas as needed, because we all need a little refresher course on being kind from time to time, ahem.

Currently, you can get The Ultimate Mom Challenge in e-book format for $17.  Mary Kate offers at 100% money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose, but lots to gain.

I received a free copy of this e-book for review purposes only.  I received no other compensation, nor was I required to write a positive review.
