It’s not often I get time to sit down and read nowadays. Making time to sit and read Parenting Through the Eyes of Lollipops by Jacqueline Pirtle has been pretty life-changing – you might this that’s a bit of a bold statement but it really has been!

When I began reading Parenting Through the Eyes of Lollipops by Jacqueline Pirtle, I was mildly sceptical about how this book would be. I assumed it was a “perfect parenting” “you must do this to have happy children” type of books – boy was I wrong.
This book has made me really think about the way that I parent my children. The way I word how I speak to my children and also made me realise how many times I used to say “no”.
I say “used to say no” as although I do still say “no” sometimes – I don’t say it nearly as often. Am I raising spoilt children now? No, I’m certainly not. I’m raising children who not only need to learn from being allowed to do what they’re asking to do, even though it might not be the best idea. They’re also going to remember the happy times and happy memories that we make together – not all of the times that “mummy said no” or they weren’t allowed to play or do anything after they’d eaten dinner because it was always “too late”.
I feel that reading Parenting Through the Eyes of Lollipops has truly helped me to become the best parent I can be. It’s made me realise how my own childhood had blurred the way I was parenting my own children too. By following the three pillars outlined in the book, you will be taken on a different and probably more enjoyable journey through parenting from day one – although you can totally pick up this book at any point of your parenting journey too as it covers all stages of a child’s life.
