Pitchin' A Fit Overcoming Angry Stressed Out Parenting--Book Review


                                         Image result for pitchin a fit israel & brook wayne
They had me at the introduction when a story is told about the family leaving on a trip and one of the 9 children is asked to feed the chickens.  I thought the story was funny but if you were there as one of those parents it wouldn't have been too funny.  

The book is filled with personal stories.   The authors do an excellent job of keeping the readers attention while presenting some relevant and practical information for parents.  It's not just about their opinions or what works for them it's about Biblical parenting. 

In 12 short chapters the authors share how not to parent with/in anger . . . 
  1. Stressed Out and Overwhelmed
  2. Is It Wrong to Get Angry?
  3. What Causes Anger?
  4. Provoking Our Children to Wrath?
  5. Trigger Happy — What Sets You Off?
  6. Yelling Moms, Hollering Dads
  7. “But I’m Not Patient!”
  8. What Patience Is and Isn’t
  9. Nurture in the Heart of Correcting
  10. The Power of Affirmation
  11. Creating Peace in the Home
  12. Accountability
From the back cover:
  • Provides practical and biblical solutions to get to the other side of the issue
  • Gives hope and freedom from the tyranny of stressed out and angry parenting.
  • Offers solutions that are ideal for any family
The authors also offer practical help and resources through their website , blog as well as Facebook groups.  (bold words are direct links)

This book is a super easy read.  The chapters are a little long but they are broken up with sub thoughts that make the reading really easy.  

This is a good and practical book for any parent.
