At a time in my life last fall when I was feeling bright with hope for my future, I was also feeling incredibly overwhelmed about my life at home. I worried about how our family could reach some of our goals when our home life felt so draining and exhausting. Honestly, it often felt like chaos. At this moment of feeling unsure of where to turn to bring things into greater order at our home, Nicholeen Peck’s book Parenting: A House United came into my life, with the promise of it being able to bring greater order and peace to my home.
“Is your home in crisis? Do your children never do what they are told? Do you find yourself completely overwhelmed and hating to interact with your children? Do your children treat you with disrespect and cause contention at home? Are you out of control of your emotions as a parent too? If any of these descriptions sound like your house, then you might be in crisis and you will definitely benefit from reading this book. It is written for you. This book is also written for people who don’t want to ever have a home like I have described above and for parents who want to have an effectively communicating family right from the beginning of parenthood.” – Parenting: A House United, by Nicholeen Peck
