FlyBy Book Review: 8 Simple Tools to Raising Great Kids by Dr. Todd Cartmell




About the Book:

"I love my child, but parenting is hard."

Whether you find parenting intuitive or impossible, we could all use a hand here and there. Let child psychologist and father Todd Cartmell walk you through the nuts and bolts of healthy, effective parenting.

Using examples from his home and 20 years of professional practice, Todd gives eight essential and practical tools to help you:
Maintain a healthy relationship with your child
Develop a nurturing home culture

Correct behavior in lasting ways


Designed for busy parents, 8 Simple Tools breaks each tool into five short chapters that include a summary tip and application questions. Use even half of the tools in your parenting, and your family dynamics will thrive. Your relationship with your child will be built on love and trust, providing you with fertile ground for planting God’s wisdom in their heart, and ultimately, seeing them flourish.



About the Author:


TODD CARTMELL is a child psychologist who practices in Wheaton, Illinois. He received his doctorate from Fuller Theological Seminary and is the author of several parenting books, including 8 Simple Tools. His parenting workshops have been enjoyed by thousands of parents throughout the country.

My Thoughts and Review:

YES, Parenting is HARD, but it truly doesn't have to be. Dr. Todd Cartmell outlines 8 Simple Tools to help every parent simplify the calling of Parenthood.

The book, 8 Simple Tools For Raising Great Kids is a WONDERFUL, short book that can be used as reinforcement for what many parents already know. The 8 simple tools are outlined as:

1) Talking
2) Listening
3) Influencing
4) Connecting
5) Teaching
6) Encouraging
7) Correcting
8) Leading

I believe in the busyness of life and parenting, we begin to lose sight of the 8 simple tools and instead make things more difficult for us and for our children. My boys are 13, 12, and 11 and I sometimes feel that I have failed them, but then I remember that is not the case. God's plans are greater then my plans and when my plans are not being carried out, it is probably because God's plans are. Dr. Todd really puts things back into perspective with this simple, yet powerful book! I really enjoyed this book and have already begun implementing the 8 Simple Tools into my parenting!

Walmart and Target: 

Walmart and Target have their Back to School areas set up, but no "Sales" yet. Here is a Wonderful Resource from Passionate Penny Pincher that is printable comparison of the everyday low prices of Walmart vs. Target Back to School.

The Target Dollar Spot has quite a few wonderful bargains for Back to School. Dollar Tree has their store stocked with Back to School items also. School Supplies and Food Storage are wonderful deals there!

The sales are coming and hopefully strong and with great prices. Get the deals while you can, stock up now so you don't pay full price in the middle of the year.

Back to School Sales Week of July 5th-July 11th




July 5th is here and that means the stores are clearing out Fourth of July and Summer BBQ items and replacing the displays with Back to School items!

YES, YES, I know summer is really just getting started and some kids have only been out of school for a couple of weeks, but before you know it Summer will be over and kids will be heading back to the books!

I went out today and scoped out the stores to see what they have for Back to School and who has started setting up the displays. I found Office Depot, Toys R Us, Staples and Walgreens have already started their Back to School areas. Walmart, Target and Dollar Tree haven't yet set up their areas, but will begin tomorrow.

A couple of stores have some worthwhile Back to School items on sale this week, so I begin my YEARLY Back to School Sales weekly blog posts that many have come to love.

I hope you all get in the deals this year and I hope the deals are much better than the past 2 years!!

Back to School Savings are here and it is my favorite shopping season of the year!!
