I Love You No Matter What
I don't know how it is with other three year old's, but with Ting it seems like we are doing a lot more "correcting" and disciplining these days that we are used too. Disciplining is definitely the hardest part of parenting, but we know that it is valuable to raising our children to be Godly adults.
Lately Ting has been breaking our hearts after we discipline her with "Do you still love me?" With that going on, my Tommy Mommy selection for the month could not have come at a better time.
I Love You No Matter What arrived in our mailbox and I was so excited to get it home and read it to Ting. I Love You No Matter What takes Jesus' parable of the prodigal son and puts it into a story that children can relate to and love.
The story is about Prince Chirpio, a little bird that wants to fly away and do things his way. At first everything is great and wonderful. He finds new friends and he thinks his life is just perfect.
As time wears on, Prince Chirpio's friends begin to leave him and he ends up all alone. He wants to go home to his dad but he is sure that his dad will no longer love him since he was mean and ran away.
Of course, we all know the story and we know that Prince Chirpio's dad, the king, welcomes him home with open arms and a full heart.
The story is perfect to highlight to children that Mommy and Daddy will always love them, no matter what they do.
I Love You No Matter What has quickly become a favorite book in our house. Ting even opens it and pretends to read it to Bug on occasion.
You can purchase I Love You No Matter What from the Thomas Nelson store, or most anywhere books are typically sold.
