Grace-Based Living by Crystal Lutton
Is spanking a form of beating? Is there a way to get compliance without spanking your kids? What causes 65-75% of parents to spank their children? Crystal Lutton parenting expert and author of the brand new book Grace Based Living, offers several reasons why spanking is not the most effective form of disciplining your children.
Here are a few of her tips below…
1. Children who feel bad, act bad. When you help them feel better their actions improve.
2. Children do age appropriate things – it’s important to stop them when that thing is inappropriate, but there is no reason to punish them for doing something normal for their age.
3. Children who are hit aren’t allowed to express feelings, and stuffed feelings leak out in other places.
4. Children are born social and want to fit in. When they don’t/can’t it’s important to show them how to be successful. Identify and remove the roadblock.
5. Intense behavior problems often indicate food sensitivities, special needs, trauma or childhood fears and you can’t spank these out of children.

Overcoming Perfectionism: Finding The Key to a Balance & Self Acceptance
While perfectionism may not carry the stigma of the more common compulsions, it can be every bit as damaging. Author Ann W. Smith’s latest book offers expert advice for reversing this negative pattern. I DEFINITELY need this book!
In this groundbreaking book, Smith provides a path to reversing this pattern. From a unique perspective she describes differences between two types of perfectionism, overt and covert; the important role that early attachment, temperament, sibling relationships, and life circumstances play in developing this pattern, and outlines the practices necessary in order to find balance and improve quality of life.
