Review: Regret Free Parenting


Written by Catherine Hickem, LCSW
Published by Thomas Nelson Publishers
List Price: $15.99

Catherine Hickem, founder of Intentional Moms, wrote the book Regret Free Parenting as a guide based upon her nearly 30 years of experience from raising children to her ministry to other women.  She is a motherhood expert who has devoted her life to helping other Moms raise exceptional children. 

In her book, Mrs. Hickem shows parents how to raise children without regret by being an intentional parent.  She explains how to equip your child with confidence, allowing children to learn by relative consequence and strong guidance. She teaches parents the difference between being a controling parent and being an intentional parent by providing seven parenting principles.  Each of the principles discuss how to prevent insecurities, teach respect, raise good teens, and much more.

I believe that during times of distress God provides the perfect guidance in many ways.  For me, this book could not have come at a better time as I was going through some tough parenting issues with my strong-willed middle child.  I had been searching for the perfect remedy to help our relationship and allow guidance for my child.  Regret Free Parenting gave that to me when I needed it most.  Through this book, I was able to learn techniques that helped me overlook some of my relationship issues with my daughter and correct other issues we had.  Since implementing the steps and ideas listed throughout the book, our relationship has grown in a better direction making our lives much easier, day by day.  I feel that Regret Free Parenting has helped strengthen my parenting skills.
