Things I Wish I Knew Book Review and Giveaway

41nrkjmhftl-_sx314_bo1204203200_

When I was approached to review Gary Chapman’s latest book Things I Wish I Known Before Becoming Parents, I jumped at the opportunity.  I love his work, especially The 5 Love Languages. Also, I am a contributing writer for Love is a Verb. Plus, his latest collaboration with Shannon Warden is a perfect topic for my parenting blog.

About the Book

Gary shares what he wishes he and his wife had known before having kids. For example, children affect your time, money, marriage – and that’s just the beginning. With his trademark warmth, he offers practical advice on everything from potty training to the importance of apologizing to your child to keeping your marriage strong…all the while celebrating the great joy that children bring.

Review

I really enjoyed reading their book; especially Chapter 9 The Social Skills are as Important as the Academic Skills.  I am a preschool teacher and we spend the majority of our time teaching our students how to share and to say “please” and “thank you.” Gary confirms its importance, and I reinforce this positive behavior in my own home with my tween and teen children.

Disclaimer: No compensation was received for this book review; just passing on a Good Read.
