Intentional Parenting Autopilot is for Planes Book Review


If you are looking for a parenting resource book, Intentional Parenting Autopilot Is for Planes is a good read. The book is written by Sissy Goff, David Thomas, and Melissa Trevathan. It is published by Thomas Nelson. Based from the authors experiences in Daystar Counseling Ministries, they put together 12 chapters answering the most common problems that parents encounter. Parents need to undertstand that intentional parenting does not happen automatically. It requires understanding, courage and action from the parents to make it work.

The book focused on the 12 types of parents we all want to be. Each type of parenting was discussed at length. The different type of parents are:

– intentional parent

– patient parent

– grown-up parent

– balanced parent

– consistent parent

– playful parent

– connected parent

– encouraging parent

– spiritual parent

– merciful parent

– hopeful parent

– free parent

I personally would like to become more intentional as a parent. I believe that God will bring  opportunities for me and I wouldn’t want to waste these moments not knowing how to respond to them. The book gave out hands-on approaches on what to do in certain situations. I really liked the following advices: Set a vision for your family, linger as a family and create memories, take a break and replace a family vacation with a trip of a different kind.

Intentional parenting is not easy, but it is definitely worth it. It shapes who we are while we shape who our children can become.
