How To Mess Up Your Child's Life Giveaway

If you've ever wondered if you're parenting is messing up your child's life, I have a pretty good guide for you.

How To Mess Up Your Child's Life is a book full of proven strategies and practical tips by Olivia and Kurt Bruner.

Photobucket

This book takes seven different skills(AKA the seven deadly sins) that you can encourage to mess up your child and explains to you the best way to teach them these sins. As a precaution, this book also gives different techniques on guiding you to teach your child how to NOT use these "talents" in everyday life.

In reality, How To Mess up Your Child's Life brings a humorous approach to different bad habits that children are learning. Each chapter first tells you how to instill these habits in your child, and then tells you different ways to teach your child how these things are wrong. It also includes verses to show what the bible says. The chapters are titled in a fun way to grab your attention such as Discouraging Frivolous Generosity(Deadly Sin: Greed).

I really enjoyed this book. I dread reading some "parenting" books because they are simply boring. How To Mess Up Your Child's Life made me smile and think all at the same time.

My favorite part was the different exercises that you can do with your child to teach them how to be better people. The one that really sticks out in my mind was in the anger chapter. Your children can squirt out toothpaste and after its all out, you tell them that you will give $20 to the first child that can get it all back in the tube. Once they realize that they can't do it, tell them that is what happens when words start coming out of your mouth. If you speak in anger, you can't take it back.

I think this is a great book to help any parent teach their children values and morals.

This is a hard one...but not to tattle just to get their sibling in troubl. But here is the catch, you still want them to "tattle" if they are in danger or are breaking a rule. It's a fine line that I haven't yet mastered...so for now, they just tattle, period!

Thanks for the fun!

I want to teach my child how to be able to defend himself without being a violent hothead. I want him to be able to do this because I know how cruel children can be while going to school and other social gatherings.

I'm hoping too that he will develop a quick wit to help him in his everyday interactions
