Since Matt and I became parents, we have been reading parenting books. All of the books vary in exactly what they focus on but they have been helpful to us in one way or another. This book, Becoming a Spiritually Healthy Family: Avoiding the 6 Dysfunctional Parenting Styles by Michelle Anthony has been a great addition to our "parenting book arsenal."
Michelle presents 6 dysfunctional styles of parenting as listed below:
The Double-Minded Parent
The I-Can't-Say-No Parent
The Driver Parent
The Criticizing Parent
The Absentee Parent
I really enjoyed the way each of the dysfunctional parenting styles are presented including justifications and statements that help the reader to determine if this is the type of parent they are with their children. In the following chapters, there is a focus on how to address each type of parenting style. They book puts a positive spin on adjusting your parenting style and how to parent your children in a godly and spiritual way. The book was just such an encouragement.
This book is FULL of information and will definitely be a book we read over and over again through the years.
