Navigating Emotions for Parents E-book Review + Giveaway

Navigating Emotions for
Parents E-book+ Giveaway
{A Book Review}

I hate to admit it but I more times then I want to be am a "blow-up" type parent, what I mean by that is that I tend to blow up and yell even though that's not anything like I want to be. I grew up with parents that tended to blew  up, even as wonderful as my parents are. They had/have their faults after all they are only human. And I have become one as well, and I hate it. I hate getting so mad at the actions of my children that I lose my temper and scream at them like I'm on drugs and losing my mind.
It's not who I want to be, not as a parent or as a Christ seeking woman and wife. And I tend to blow up at my husband over stupid things. I don't think that there is ever been a time or reason that I needed to blow up at Mike, that's just tends to be my knee jerk reaction.

I was excited to get this book and start reading it, I knew that if the tips and principles were practical then it would work for me.

 The book it easy to navigate through and is an easy read, it will be a book that you come back to many times to remind your self and to refresh your mind of things.

The website is as helpful as the book is, there are opportunities to be part of webinars, to contact and even to meet Amy Phoenix the author, or even just use the site a to learn more.
