8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids

By Dr. Todd Cartmell

I’ve raised 3 kids and I’m now raising my grandchild. I find that there are sometimes issues that I have trouble dealing with and I need some fresh perspective. I found a book called  8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids by Dr. Todd Cartmell and thought maybe I could get some hints from it.  Dr. Cartmell is a clinical child psychologist who has written a number of books on parenting. I could tell from the start that it was a no nonsense book with plenty of good information in it. The book is laid out in chapter form with a number of common issues, each with chapters relevant to that issue. For instance, the first issue, or tool, is Talking. The chapters are Control Your Volume Button, If Unsure Press the Pause Button, Start With You, etc. I found the suggestions to be easy to understand and apply. As a matter of fact, I found that there were many tools that are useful in my relationship with my husband as well. I have been taking my time with this book, as it has a lot to offer but I think is best accomplished over time rather than in a rush.  Dr. Cartmell brings all of this to us in as simple of terms as possible so that it’s easy to relate and put to use the tools that he proposes. The goal is to raise well behaved children in a positive way, creating a home environment that is positive and a relationship that is healthy. It is also faith based but not in an in-your-face kind of way. I think the extra attention to suggestions based on Christian values and how to accomplish them is welcome.
