*Bookmarks is an online book club hosted at Creative2xmom. Here we discuss the books we've read in the past month as well as the suggested reading. Our suggested reading for September was 5 Love Languages for Children by Gary Chapman.
These are the books I read this month:
10 Christians Everyone Should Know by John Perry-- See my review here.
Our suggested reading for this month was 5 Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman-- This book came at a much needed time in my motherhood journey. When I made the list in January, I didn't know I would be homeschooling in September. And yet here I am. One of the greatest decisions (so far) and yet one of the hardest. I'm seeing my relationship with my son deepen and yet we're together 24 hours a day and really know how to push each other's buttons. So this book couldn't have come at a better time. If you haven't read anything about the 5 Love Languages before, this is a great place to start. The book gives a clear description of each as well as examples as they relate to kids. And although I do know the 5 Love Languages, this book gave me some fresh ideas. As the book progresses it gets more into parenting theory. This is where I got a little off track. The writers are still very clear; I just found myself disagreeing on some points. All in all, it gave me some new ideas, but some ideas I'll discard as well. Read it with a grain of salt.
