Book Review--Trophy Child: Saving Parents From Performance, Preparing Children for Something Greater Than Themselves

I wasn't sure what to expect when I first began reading this book.  Ted Cunningham has a wonderfully personal, real way of relating how to identify if we are trophy parents.  As a mom of eight, I didn't think I saw myself in this manner, but the reality is I am!
 Written for every mom who helps too much with homework just to impress the teacher and every dad who takes credit for
his daughter’s soccer success, Trophy Child will give parents the encouragement they need to nurture their kids into who God
created them to be.
Through careful "parent gut checks" at the end of each chapter, Cunningham takes parents through the process of realization of what type of parent we are, how we can train our children to serve the Lord, and how we can strengthen and prioritize our marriages.  He gives effective, scripture-based ways of preparing our children for adulthood as well as raising them to have a personal relationship with God.
This book is a "must read" for parents desiring to avoid vanity parenting and guiding and directing their children to reach the potential our Heavenly Father has purposed them for.
