Motivate Your Child Action Plan Book Review

Are you looking to craft a unique strategy to propel your child forward? Now, you can use the same Action Plan used by Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN to help change your child. Do you remember my review of Motivate Your Child? Well we got the chance to review another book, Motivate Your Child Action Plan which goes along with that book.

MYC Action Plan photo 11112554_892549440807259_2308661135360803112_n_zpsx1qtdvad.jpg

The National Center for Biblical Parenting has come out with Motivate Your Child Action Plan. This 162 page book has 12 chapters, each of these chapters has a corresponding audio presentation to go along with them. After spending 40 days working through this action plan, you should see some changes in your child, as long as you are willing to make some changes in yourself!

The main part of this action plan is meeting with your child on a regular basis to talk about what the goal are. Without actually involving your children, you can’t expect any change to happen. You need to transfer the responsibility of the action that needs changing to your child. Let them know what you see and ask them what they see.

Motivate Your Child Action Plan

You must remember, and I am sure that you have heard this before, but we need to point out the positives to our children when we are working to build internal motivation in our children. We have to remember that a negative approach can lead to resistance and a defensive child, where what we really want is a child who is willing to help. Sometimes a parent reaching out a loving hand in the relationship is a great start.

This book continues to give us parents wonderful pointers, wonderful quotes and a wonderful map to help our children grow and become more independent. During each chapter, you are able take notes right in the book, answering questions and working with your child one on one to make wonderful changes in your child.

Motivate Your Child Action Plan

While Motivate Your Child Action Plan works great with Motivate Your Child, you don’t need both to make them work! They do complement each other quite well, you are able to be coached with all the extra, but if you want to get the action started right away, you will be able to use Motivate Your Child Action Plan just fine.

I loved the first book, and was excited to get the chance to check out the Action Plan. Now, I love both the books! If I had to pick just one…I would take the Action Plan as my first option. This book is just like a workbook, but you have a bonus of the audio presentations. These are the whipped cream on the pie! They make you feel like you have two personal coaches who are working to make sure you do the best that you can do with your child.

Moe Man has always been my struggle child. We have gone through a lot together, and I decided I wanted to make him my main focus for this book and the action plan. I didn’t expect any miracles, but was thrilled with the results that we did see. While I know we still have a lot of work ahead of us, knowing that we now have a base thrills me. I love seeing him slowly making the steps towards helping without me always have to tell him what to do. I would have to say, that even though I had known forever that positive is better than negative, taking the time to actually do it intentionally has shown me a huge change.

MYC Action Plan photo 11100088_892549434140593_4841395906631484246_n_zpsdyxgo5sr.jpg

If you are looking for a wonderfully easy program to help your children work with you to change their behavior, this is the book for you!

Have you read either one of these books? I would love to hear what you have to say about them!

Ultimate Homemaker’s Bundle ~ Marriage, Homeschool and more!

Yesterday I started to share with you about this Ultimate Homemaker’s Bundle. But I didn’t get around to sharing all of my favorite books with you. Let me share some more with you today!

There are so many awesome cook books! I have started getting into freezer meals, so I can’t wait to read No Cook Freezer Meals by Kelly McNelis. And with summer coming with the hot weather, Easy Oven Free Dinners by Tabitha Philen sounds like it will be put to good use!

The Costco Slow Cooker Freezer Meals by Erin Chase is another wonderful looking book that I could use this summer! Supercharged Food for Kids by Lee Holmes is something I want for the kids to make sure they have all they need in their systems! And what mom wouldn’t want to read Supermarket Ninjas: How to Find Real Food in the Store Without Losing Your Mind by Beth Ricci?!

12 Days of Christmas for the Hurting by Rachel Wojnarowski is a book that I need more of so I can share it with all my family members and this year we will be using More Feasts: Celebrating Saints and Seasons with Simple Real Food Recipes by Daniel and Haley Stewart.

For the homeschooling homemakers, we have a few great books added into this bundle! Carisa Hinson from 1+1+1=1 has added her Animal ABCs Bundle, which is a fun way to keep the younger kids busy while the older ones are learning. Sharla Kostelyk is sharing her Sensory Bins: The What, The How & The Why. With younger kids, sensory bins are a fun addition to the week…or theme!

Keeping the fires going with your hubby help keep you happy as a wife. Why not check out 50 Frugal Dates by Jenny Martin. That way you can work on saving money while still having fun!! My Beloved and My Friend: How to Be Married to Your Best Friend Without Changing Spouses by Hal and Melanie Young is one of my favorite books! Remember when I did this review of it?

Oh the joys of being a mom!! We love the job, but somedays we just need to scream!! I am starting From Grouchy to Great: Finding Joy in the Journey of Motherhood by Ruth Schwenk and On the Road to Joyful Motherhood by Jessica Fisher. I hope to tell you more about these very soon!!

Organizing the home is on my list of things I would love to work on! I hope that One Bite at a Time: 52 Projects for Making Life Simpler by Tsh Oxenreider will help me, along with Controlling the Spin Within: Managing the Mundane, Surviving the Insane by Holly Dvorak.

Are you thinking about cloth diapers? Rachel Boreing has Cloth Diapers: A How-To Handbook on the Basics of Cloth Diapering. And if you are still pregnant or have a baby now, Jessica Wolstenholm has The Baby Companion and The Pregnancy Companion.

Alison Wood has the book 25 Days to a Happier Home while Kimberlee Stokes has Be Happy. These both sound like something I want to have happen in the house…and then there is How Do I Get It All Done?…and Still Have Time to Enjoy It? By Beth Cranford.

For those of you thinking of blogging, you should read How to Blog for Profit (Without Selling Your Soul) by Ruth Soukup or How to be a Work at Home Mom by Prerna Malik.

Audio and eCourse are also included in this bundle…like (De)Clutter Buddies by Alina Joy Dubois and Grocery University by Crystal Paine.

So…are you ready to make the purchase yet?? This is only available for this week…we are one day closer to the end!! Hurry before you miss this wonderful bundle!!!
