New Book Review!
…I will admit that I was kind of skeptical going in as it seemed like the more I read, the more her ideology was in contrast to how I was raised and what I feel is the right way of parenting- that I am the parent and my kids are kids and must listen and follow my lead. Pirtle argues that children and their parents are equals in this life of parenting and there are times that one is the student and one is the teacher and vice-versa. It is a harmonious dance in which the child and parent are equal participants.
…Pirtle offers 3 pillars of beliefs that summarize her parenting advice–The Harmonious Dance, It is Never the Child, and The Love Cycle of Parenthood. The pillars offer joyful, energized ways to be a better parent and a better participant in whatever level of parenthood you are in (including before you conceive, when your child is a baby, young child, teenager and adult). They remind you to enjoy the role of being a parent to your greatest blessings.
…I personally needed that particular reminder and I picked up several tidbits that I believe will help me in my parenting journey with the kiddos. Ideologies that will hopefully help bring back my joy as a mom and allow me to have a better relationship with my children.

What are you giving today and what are you doing with what you’re receiving today?
…It’s not often I get time to sit down and read nowadays. Making time to sit and read Parenting Through the Eyes of Lollipops by Jacqueline Pirtle has been pretty life-changing – you might think that’s a bit of a bold statement but it really has been!
…When I began reading Parenting Through the Eyes of Lollipops by Jacqueline Pirtle, I was mildly sceptical about how this book would be. I assumed it was a “perfect parenting” “you must do this to have happy children” type of books – boy was I wrong.
…I feel that reading Parenting Through the Eyes of Lollipops has truly helped me to become the best parent I can be. It’s made me realise how my own childhood had blurred the way I was parenting my own children too. By following the three pillars outlined in the book, you will be taken on a different and probably more enjoyable journey through parenting from day one – although you can totally pick up this book at any point of your parenting journey too as it covers all stages of a child’s life.
