Winning the Heart of Your Child: 9 Keys to Building a Positive Lifelong Relationship with Your Kids is a thoughtful parenting book by Mike Berry. One of my favorite parts of the book was when Berry compared parenting in movies and TV shows (such as Gilmore Girls) to what real-life parenting should ideally look like.
Throughout the book, Berry shares a lot of great advice, such as when he discusses in depth the four roles of good parents (nurturers, defenders, leaders, and models). I like how Berry tells the reader about nine “keys” that will help build positive relationships with your kids; my favorite key that he explored was “love no matter what.” The book is especially helpful for parents of teenagers. In the midst of busy lives with often little downtime, this book can help parents and teens maintain healthy relationships.
