Parents Take Heart

A book that knows everything about what you are going through and more, even things you hadn’t realised and this book just hits the nail on the head. Not only did I discover such incredible tools to have such incredible relationships with the kids and teens in my life but I had a hell of a lot of a-ha moments that made me realise the stuff that I was still carrying around from when and how I was parented that wasn’t doing me any favours at all.


Reading "Parents Take Heart" had a calming effect on me and reminded me to take the long view and not be so hard on myself. I really enjoyed Ren's nurturing approach and her wise suggestions that are best for both parent and child. I especially enjoyed the "Take Inspired Action" bullet lists at the end of each chapter, which served not only as great summaries of each chapter but really helped drive home the important points to think about and consider weaving into your daily life.

This well thought out carefully written book comes as close as any book can to being an instruction manual for motherhood. As a psychologist who worked with young children for many years I recognise familiar research and recommendations that every mom needs to know. As a mom with two girls I found the end of chapter “Action Tips” to be a great quick and easy “cheatsheet” to chapter contents. The generational overview of parent rearing was very telling and can help a parent avoid cultural traps for their kids, also allowing parents to customise a model to follow when raising their kids.

As a parent of 6 kids, I felt like this book was written just for me. It helped me understand how to have a better mindset and understanding of the big picture but it also provided actionable takeaways that I’ve already noticed have helped me react better to my kids. If only I had discovered this book 15 years ago!​
