Today is super exciting!! My co-author, Wendy Speake and I are finally revealing our new book and the cover to all of you! But first, let me explain….
Last week, two of my boys stared at me as I stood before them with my mouth gaping in disbelief. Their bedroom was strewn with toys and clothing. The same room I had not less than 30 minutes prior, finished organizing and putting in order with a new toy bin system. The scene before me literally left me speechless. Which was probably a good thing. At least I didn’t say the wrong thing--words that would do more harm than good. I shudder to think of all the times I’ve said the wrong thing at the wrong time to my kids.
Can you relate?
I learned a long time ago that when I don’t have a plan in place to teach and train them in right behavior, nothing changes. The same goes for me and my mouth. Over the years of working with parents who struggle with anger and frustration, one of the constant comments I heard was, “Amber, I know what I need to do the good parenting, but I am just not sure what to say in the moment.”
I could identify with that. So often, when my kids were younger, I wasn’t sure what I could say that would have a lasting and positive impact, but now that I’ve been at this parenting thing for more than a decade, raising four very unique sons, I’ve found some extremely helpful “Parenting Scripts”--words and phrases we can use to reach the hearts of our children--that diffuse conflict and point our kids to Christ-like behavior.
This is the exciting part!
For the past two years, my writing partner, Wendy Speake, and I have been working on a collection of our favorite “Scripts” we use in our own homes and we are finally ready to share them with you! We have seen the incredible impact they have had on the lives of our children. We have never shared this with anyone else before, and we can’t wait to put this book in your hands! Today, we get to share this new book, and all the lessons we have learned in our own parenting journey, with you!
Parents want to say and do the right thing in the heat of the moment; they just aren't sure what that looks like. Parenting Scripts: When What You’re Saying Isn’t Working, Say Something New, is the much-needed resource and encouragement for moms and dads who are desperate to speak life to their children instead of defaulting to the same old words and ineffective consequences. Focusing on the most ordinary and yet troublesome areas in our daily routines, Parenting Scripts helps parents to craft intentional, well thought out and prayed over words.
From toddlers at the dinner table, elementary age children melting down over homework, the tween years complete with hormones and attitudes, and the later teenage years as they journey toward independence and adulthood, Parenting Scripts is for every parent who desires to do right but often does wrong. These pages are filled with grace and encouragement, from our hearts, to yours.
Each of the thirty-one short chapters includes a:
Parenting Script - main lesson, complete with a script to try at home
SCRIPT-URES: - verses to apply
Prayer Script – prayer to pray
Make the Script Your Own - empty page to write down your own parenting script
This book is both a book and a workbook, all in one!
