NEW Book Review! Thanks BoyMomStories for taking the time to read and review
…Recently I had the privilege of reading a fantastic book called Parenting Through The Eyes of Lollipops.
…When I first read the synopsis I was a little leery because it seemed so different to how we parent. With having 2 adopted children and 2 bio children that are all so different I wondered if I would be able to utilize the information that was going to be presented.
…I loved how the book helps you to shift the focus from being in charge to the realization that you and your child need to work together to ensure a healthy and happy family.
…The Harmonious Dance: Reading this made me think about that parenting is like a dance. In the book it shows how this Harmonious Dance is a entwined dance between physical and spiritual.
…It’s Never The Child: One sentence that stood out to me in this area is ”Having to make mom and dad feel good is a heavy weight to carry.” This section also helps you look at reasons why a child may misbehaves and realize its not just because they want it there are underlying causes.
…The Love Cycle of Parenthood: With having 2 teenagers and a preteen this pillar really hit home to me This section helps you explore each age and phase of raising your child. It speaks on important growth aspect of love and nourishing yourself and your child.
…I feel the book is an excellent resource to any parent. Even if your parenting style is not the same there are so many ideas that there is something that can be beneficial to anyone.

New Podcast alert! Thanks FarFromNormal for having me .
…This week I’m sitting down with bestselling author Jacqueline Pirtle to talk about her fantastic book “Parenting Through the Eyes of Lollipops.” She is one of the most positive, energetic, joyful people I have ever met and has an amazing perspective on parenting. She is full of wisdom, and great energy and this is a great episode for any parent to enjoy!
… This asks for a shift in your relationship with them and in truth, parents, it starts with you. Good thing is, it is easier than you think!
During this intense and changing time it is important to understand the incredible gifts this situation bears. Gifts to re-evaluate your relationship with yourself, your children, your husband or partner, and further the family as a whole, even with your own parents.
In order to be open to such a shift you must first set aside all that was, all that ever happened, and let go of all your old beliefs and old ways and look only at “right now,” making this the only truth that you accept and will work with.
