Love the examples and real-life stories and resources included so you don't have to reinvent the wheel. Totally recommend.
Gus's writing style is very warm and approachable. His examples will have you laughing one minute and welling up with tears the next. While reading this book, I never felt like I was being "preached" to, but rather that I was sitting around a dining table with a good friend and discussing the parenting journey.
While the book digs into eight different developmental areas, it never feels overwhelming. The chapters are concise and, in many cases, the suggested activities are things you are probably already doing with your children anyway. The difference is in the purposefulness of the activity, and Gus guides you in ways to make the moments count. I highly recommend this book to all parents seeking to be intentional in their parenting!
Each chapter includes a variety of “do it” activities designed to teach important life skills and “conversation starters” to get kids talking. These open-ended questions came in handy a few weeks ago when I spent three days fishing with the 17-year-old son of one of my best friends.
What I have discovered is that experience and wisdom often appear at the end of the bridge and not the outset of the crossing. This book is the answer both in direction and wisdom packed into very simple to execute process. The best part of the book is that it has been applied, tested, and realized. Thank you Bromans for hearing God's call to write this book.
