For moms like me who have toddler children, this book is a compilation of another Christian mama’s experiences and learnings. The wisdom and practical tips imparted here encompass toddler discipline, handling tantrums, potty training, early healthy living to teach toddlers, their feeding and their sleeping. The author also talked about how moms could have time for themselves and how parents could reinvent their date nights. There’s even a chapter called the Christian Daddy’s Guide to Parenting a Toddler!
I tend to shy away from parenting books because I get worried and paranoid if there’s something I’m doing wrong or not doing at all. I like that this book was written from a Christian mama’s perspective and how it’s as if I’m having a casual conversation with her, one mom to another. I also love the Timeout for Mom section where the author shares verses from the Bible and a prayers that are applicable to each chapter. The book was injected with lots of humor that makes it a light read, but there are some jokes that do not resonate with me. Overall, it’s a book that I think I would go back to again and again while my children are growing, because mothering is a never-ending learning process. I might have to learn a lesson many times over. I highly recommend The Christian Mama’s Guide to Parenting a Toddler by Erin MacPherson to other Christian moms like me whose purpose is to lead their little ones to Jesus.
