Blogging for Books- How We Love Our Kids by Milan and Kay Yerkovich

Posted by Heather at Tuesday, January 17, 2012

How We Love Our Kids, the 5 Love Styles of Parenting by Milan and Kay Yerkovich is an insightful, informative and real guide to parenting in today’s world.

This book takes five real-life parenting personalities (Avoider, Pleaser, Vacillator, Controller and Victim) and relates them to the personalities of Avoider/Pleaser/Vacillator/Controller and Victim children. This book helps us as parents relate to our children and better serves their needs while providing us with a better understanding of ourselves and our parenting styles. There was more than once where I stopped to think, “Hey, that describes me to a T!”

This book also talks about the seven gifts that we as parents can (and should!) give to our children. They are: The gift of insight, comfort, power, frustration, confession, laughter and God.

I applaud these authors, a married couple with four grown children of their own, for lauding morality, virtue, and Biblical principals in the enormous task of raising children. Any parent- young, old, new parent, grandparent- would benefit from the insights gleaned from inside the pages of How We Love our Kids.
