I Love My Kids But I Don’t Always Like Them by Franki Bagdade provides readers with guidance that will help struggling parents understand their children. This book is written in easy to understand language and career-specific terms are explained with many practical examples.
In each chapter the author addresses the different areas that parents may find challenging. From infant age to toddlerhood up to adolescence, Bagdade left no stone unturned in taking readers through the peculiar roadblocks associated with child developmental milestones. Bagdade, a mother of three children herself, demonstrates mastery of the behavioral pattern of children and provides actionable advice on how to handle situations where your children behave in ways you don’t approve of. While admitting her failure to handle some situations in the best way, Bagdade provides advice on how to deal with the guilt that comes with those situations.
In exploring perhaps the most difficult aspect that comes with parenting, the author explains how to understand children with special needs. That moment when you don’t know if your child’s tantrum is some behavioral flaw that requires expert opinion and support or just another moody day. This book offers a solution on how to get those in contact with your child, from teachers to family relatives, to make adequate provisions for your child.
In the chapter, “Right Size Your Expectations”, the author shares with readers how to prioritize intent over the outcome of actions. This helps to handle times when parents feel disappointed in their child’s behavior especially when the children are not doing anything necessarily bad.
This is a critical resource for parents that will help parents re-evaluate their parenting style and promote conversations on parenting and how there is no one-formula-fits-all in raising different children even within the same family. With quirky humor and a free-spirited tone, Bagdade has written an engaging parenting book that is colored by her experience as a mother and consultant educator. She details easy-to-follow approaches to parenting that will help parents enjoy their children, even during their worst times.
