The Joy of Letting Go: Releasing Your Teen into Real Life in the Big World, by Vicki Caruana {a book review}

About the book

With readings of encouragement and inspirational quotes, this devotional helps parents prepare their hearts for their children’s independence, whether their kids are just starting kindergarten or graduating from college.

Parents let go of their children every day, even in ways they don’t realize. The 52 devotional readings within shine a light on all the times readers have loosened their grip on their children and encourages them to continue to let go in life-giving ways. Written by a parenting and education expert, The Joy of Letting Go will comfort and inspire parents in all seasons of parenting.

What I thought about the book

As a mom of four: 2 grown and in their 20s, and 2 in their teens, I know all about the "joy" of letting go. Yes, I know that we, as parents, are supposed to be working ourselves out of a job, but it still is the hardest thing in the world, at least for me, to do. Yet, it truly is a joy to see the wonderful young people they have become, are becoming.

The Joy of Letting Go is truly a must-read for any parent with teens who are on the verge of embarking on the independent journey into the wide world beyond the shelter of home. You'll find encouragement, and advice, shared in an easy, lighthearted way.
