Oh how I wish I’d had this book, Regret Free Parenting, by Catherine Hickem, LCSW, when I was raising my own children. The author caught my attention immediately by quoting “The Dash” by Linda Ellis. It speaks to what we will do between our birth and our death. Ms. Hickem takes it one step farther. She says Who’ we influence is more important than our do.
I especially liked chapter 6 because it addresses the difference between control and intention, or addressing our fears. I was a control mom, simply because I lived in fear. I learned lots about myself in this chapter.
And I am grateful that I learned early on to give everything over to faith. Whew!
This is a quick read, easy to understand book, full of helpful examples and clear explanations. Highly recommend it.
