[Durham] informs readers that trusting in and leaning on God is a vital part of successful parenting.
PORT ARTHUR, Texas (PRWEB) August 28, 2015
Eddie Marie Durham shares her experiences “While Being a Parent” (published by iUniverse) in the pages of her self-help book, providing advice to help guide young parents as they take on the challenge of raising children in the modern world. She provides practical parenting advice and shares not only her personal experiences, but also poetry, scripture and quotes in order to help them during the formative years of their children’s lives.
“Being a parent is a lifetime job,” says Durham, the mother of three adult sons and a retired elementary school teacher who has always relied on God’s guidance and her family values to carry her through difficult times while parenting her children. Guided by these principles, Durham leads others chronologically through her experiences, both good and bad, while offering wisdom and encouragement to other parents that will help them respect one another, talk to children about expectations and consequences, carry out discipline, allow children to grow and mature, be active with children in all facets of life, and lean on their faith for strength.
“While Being a Parent” shares time-tested advice from a blessed mother that will help other parents attain the greatest reward in life: mentoring a child into a productive, loving adult.
“One of the reasons why I chose to write this book was after hearing about a group of teen girls who had made a pact to have babies while they were still in high school. Another influencing reason was after seeing so many children being mistreated in our society and feeling that maybe some of us older folk could give the young parents a clue into what a blessing it is to have children, especially ones who are loving, respectful and a plus to our world,” she says. She also informs readers that trusting in and leaning on God is a vital part of successful parenting.
