The Joy of Letting Go Review (Litfuse)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I read the Joy of Letting Go in exchange for honest review from Litfuse. The book was written by Vicki Caruana. The book is Christian-based, parenting devotional.

I wanted this book because I do have a teenager and a toddler and need all the godly parenting help, I can get. The book is about letting our kids go and letting them lead their own lives. I want my kids to be more independent, despite disability, and not rely on me as much, but yet, I have to teach them how to be more independent. If I want the boys to use the toilet more, I have to put them on the toilet. If I want Brad to use soap in the shower, I have to train him to do so.

And I can't complain too much, whenever they try to do something, no matter how chaotic it may go. For example, Kalen is observant, too observant. He has tried to mop, plunge the toilet, and wash dishses based on seeing me do it. Kalen also cleans walls and helps set out dishes for dinner. Kalen is trying to be independent, despite my dislike for water all over the bathroom floor or an overflowing sink of dishwater because he likes the bubbles.

The author also discussed how she raised her kids to be independent, but they live further away from her as adults and reply back to texts days later.

Note: As I am writing this blog post, Bradd wakes up and takes a shower (no soap). After he gets out the tub, he realizes he has pooped and proceeds to wipe his own butt, while I handed him the wipes. Go Brad.

You can purchase the book in Kindle and hardcover format. The book is prime-eligible.
