Hi mommas, this is an unsponsored, ‘in a nutshell’ review of one of my latest reads, The Power of a Positive Mom by Karol Ladd. I received this book as a gift and I have to say, I love it.
The breakdown of the book is great for busy moms as it gives you 7 different principles broken down into separate sections. I totally don’t want to give away the wisdom within this book but I will say, the power of mommy’s actions and thoughts directly impact that of the child. One part of this book that was my favorite was having an ‘Attitude of Gratitude’. This section of the book speaks about ‘Creating a Thankful Environment’ the author uses real life examples to illustrate the meaning and importance behind this. Karol also writes about gratitude being contagious and how we shape our children’s attitudes by implementing consistent ‘attitudes of gratitude’.
This books also explains the importance of ‘Harmony With Hubby’ and ‘The Power of Strong Relationships’. The breakdown of this section within the book provides ‘Fire Builder’ tips, which help with ideas to keep the flame going in your marriage. Exemplifying strong relationship skills is key to leading by example for your children. When children see the positive impact that having strong relationships can have on life, they are more incline to want these types of relationships as well, which is beneficial to their social development.
‘Living Lesson Books’ is also one of my favorite parts of, The Power of a Positive Mom, it speaks about how our actions speak louder than words. The title of this section speaks for itself, I think as parents it’s important for us to not only tell our children what is right and what is wrong, but to also show them this through our actions. Our children are watching us even when we don’t know it, as parents we have the responsibility of shaping another person for the world.
The Power of a Positive Mom is a great read for every mother.
