“Conventional wisdom is any generally accepted set of beliefs and practices. Its conclusions aren’t necessarily followed because of their proven effectiveness, but simply because they are poplar.”
If you have been reading this blog for any length of time, you will by now have realized that we are not what you would call trendy parents. Aside from our weekly ‘Pump Day’ posts, some might assume our ideals come from an entirely different era.
I believe we all need to evaluate our parenting and decide if we are following trends because they are truly what is good for our family or simply because that is what everyone else is doing.
Customized Parenting in a Trending World by Richard and Carrie Blackaby might be just the place to start our journey of discovery. This father/daughter duo writes with such heartfelt conviction and encouragement, one cannot help but enjoy this book. Their hilarious anecdotes allow us a glimpse inside their own home and help us better understand why it is important to abandon what the world views as right and follow a more noble path.
Customized Parenting in a Trending World is about wising up and teaching kids that status quo is not always the best way to go. This book will help you find the courage and creativity to challenge conventional wisdom and customize your parenting to suit each child and help them thrive. Richard and Carrie Blackaby offer informative content from both sides of the gamut. Challenges to societal normality pack the pages. Carrie’s charming childhood stories accompanied by Richard’s insightful wisdom make for an entertaining, yet informative read.
God takes great delight in creating unique individuals, so why do we teach our children to conform and be complacent?
