Regret Free Parenting is a great read for mothers (or fathers) of all ages. Whether your children are babes in arms, or fully grown adults, there is something every parent can learn from this book. Hickem writes from an obvious psychotherapist point of view, but in very easy to understand language. The book is broken down into seven keys principles for helping parents reach a point in their lives when they can say they do not regret the way in which they raised their children.
An interesting theme I picked up from the book was that regret-free doesn’t mean mistake-free! While we, as parents, are bound to make some mistakes along the way, we always have an opportunity to move forward and improve. It is recognizing what we are doing wrong, and fixing it, that makes us ‘intentional’ in the way we raise our children.
