The Home Team (Review)
This review is for the book "The Home Team" by Clint Archer. At first I was a bit skeptical about this book because there are just so many books out there about parenting and the family. This book was one of the best I've read, though. Archer uses sports metaphors to talk about the family, such as team rivals, the huddle, and going through each role of the team players.
The only thing I found in this book that I would change is I wish Archer would have been a little more specific with some of his suggestions. He talks about giving active instruction to children, for example, but was not specific enough that I could set the book down and implement this with my own children. On that note, though, I do understand it is impossible to get too detailed on every topic in the book.
I also liked the section at the end of each chapter called "Ask Yourself" which is great for self-reflection or a small group study.
Thank you to Cross Focused Reviews and Shepherd Press for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
