Parenting with Heart: How Imperfect Parents Can Raise Resilient, Loving, and Wise-Hearted Kids is a helpful parenting book written by Stephen James and Chip Dodd. The authors are both professional counselors, and they provide practical parenting advice. Both authors use their own parenting experiences to shine light on various parenting issues, and their stories are insightful and interesting. One of my favorite chapters was “Failure Is Not Optional — It’s Inevitable,” reminding us that failure does and will occur in all families. The book encourages us to accept our flaws, seek Christ first, and build strong bonds with our families.
