With All Due Respect | Book Review


Having an almost 10 year old daughter, who is already very much in the "tween" stage in so many ways, I was excited to find and read "With All Due Respect: 40 Days to a More Fulfilling Relationship with Your Teens & Tweens".   This book is set up more like a daily devotional for moms with a daily "challenge" to help relook/change your perspective toward your tween/teen, which in turn helps to build/rebuild that relationship between mother/child.  
Each "day" starts with Bible verses and an easy-to-relate-to scenario from other families.  After the story sets the tone for the day's "focus", the topic is explained/explored thoroughly but is offered in a short, manageable form, even for the busiest of moms.  Each day ends with thought-provoking questions/challenges to help you to apply and a prayer for the day, specific to the topic discussed.  
Not every day will be relevant to everyone, but I would venture to guess that everyone could find something worthwhile within the pages of this book to help you to better understand your tween/teen.  This is a book I will keep and go through over and over again to keep me in check on ways I can better relate to my children as they reach the tween/teen ages and stages.  
I received this book for free from Booklook Blogger Program for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
