Reviews - What do customers think about Children Learn What They Live?

Children Learn What They Live  May 2, 2008
This book came within three days of ordering. I already have the book but bought it for a gift.
They Really do!!  Jan 12, 2007
It's up to us to teach by example.... who knew? Please read if you have kids. An easy read, not novel-ish, more article-ish. Very nice book.
Wonderfully insightful  Jul 26, 2006
This one is a keeper. I find it inspiring and insightful ~~ and not condemning ~~ just helpful. It is encouraging and wonderfully short so if you're busy and don't have a lot of time to read it, it's perfect for you. It is also a book that you can keep in your library as your kids grow older and then pass it onto them when they start raising their own children.

Parenting isn't easy and sometimes, these parenting books can be overwhelming and can make the reader feel inadequate because there are times when nothing works. This book is a gentle reminder that we aren't alone in our struggles and yes, our behavior does teach our children the things to do or not to do. However, this book also give you insights on what your child might be thinking or feeling and sometimes, offer you practical solutions for your child to put to practice. Life isn't perfect but having stability in the family life is very important as well as parents who try to model thoughtfulness and sincerity in everything they do.

It is a little book but it sure packs a lot of thoughtful insights. I wish I had this book when the boys were in their terrible threes. But now that I have it, I plan to cherish it for as long as I need it and pass it onto their children.

Children Live What They Learn  Mar 7, 2006
I bought this for my niece who is pregnant. It's a wonderful book and should remind anyone who reads it that they have to teach by example.
For Every Parent !!!!  Jun 21, 2005
I discovered Nolte's parenting books from a glowing review in the Orlando Sentinel. I'd always loved her poem that evolved into these books. Whenever I see a parent ridiculing a child or shaming them, I wish they knew the poem.
Hopefully these books will reach a whole new generation of parents and help them become better role models for their children.
"If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence." This book will make a great baby shower present (wrapped in with a rattle or other item).
