Do you believe your struggle with anger stems from the wrong behavior you see displayed in your children? The knee-jerk reactions and blow-ups you’re facing are often a result of a bigger set of “triggers.” Some of these are external, like a child’s disobedience, backtalk, or selective hearing, while others are internal, like an overflowing schedule, sleep-deprivation, or perhaps your own painful experiences from childhood. Triggers: Exchanging Parent’s Angry Reactions for Gentle Biblical Responses examines common parenting issues that cause us to explode inappropriately at our children. Moving beyond simple parenting tips on how to change your child’s behavior, authors Amber Lia and Wendy Speake offer biblical insight and practical tools to equip and encourage you on the journey away from anger-filled reactions toward gentle, biblical responses.
- Great book! Wish I had it 30 years ago!
I enjoy the book a lot, but having a child who is almost 30, it is too late for me to use. I hoped this book would help me deal with my triggers in adult life with adults. While I am learning some things I could do, I learn also all the wrong things I put in to play with my daughter. I plan to gift the book to her when she embarks upon motherhood!
- A must read...over and over again!
I have so many triggers and I wanted to blame them on everyone else, but it was ME! This book hits all the spots that we don’t want to admit we have, but need to address. It is a must have in our intentional godly parenting arsenal!
- PUT GOD FIRST ALWAYS!!
I feel at ease i thought i was ONLY experiencing these feelings about my love ones ..just have to put GOD in everything ! Thank you !

- Nice parenting book
I was stuck feeling frantic and stressed and finding myself taking it out on my kid so I knew I needed to visit a parenting book to help get me back in line. This was a really good one to relate to the various challenges we face as parents and show us all we have pulling us away from living as the great moms we wished to be; it gives encouragement and scripture on a positive perspective to have on parenting and how to talk kindly and support your kids. Only problem is these examples of what to say are scattered throughout the book. I wish they were gathered together in an index so I could study them like flash cards. Also, the author said she doesn't assign chores, but has her whole family all pitch in. I have no idea how she can manage to keep from having kids drag their feet and not waste 1.5 hours sweeping the same area of the floor, getting nothing done. She just said, she encourages a spirit of hard work. All this sounds like a nice dream, but I want to know more about how it works. It sounded like she said, "other families have chore charts and we'll look more at how you can arrange family duties later" but she never got around to it. So that's the only disappointment of the book. I was hoping that at the end she'd tell me about her blog or something so I could go find out more. Maybe I can look it up. Anyway, the readers were good; switched voices between authors. I laughed a few times and teared up a couple times so it was a good listening experience.
