    1. All though none of us want to admit it, we are all disappointed that we don’t have perfect children. This book really gets at the root of that longing and gives real strategies to raise imperfect human beings.I was raised in a household where I was expected to be perfect. When I had children, I vowed that I wouldn't put the same pressures on my them but I have found it difficult to escape that cycle.Full of examples from real moms, and insights from a psychologist , this book really showed me [...]

    2. This book, No More Perfect Kids was written for me. I swear Jill and Dr. Kathy were lookinginto my home, my heart, and my head while they were writing this. I am telling you, they camped outside my door in my yard. — Not really. But this book was written for moms like me in mind. Let me give you an example. It is written in this book about appearances, on page 53, a mom had written the importance she has placed on her personal appearance. She then turned that on to her children. Well, I did th [...]

    3. “Perfection Infection Collides with Parenting” in Jill Savage and Kathy Koch’s No More Perfect Kids: Love Your Kids for Who They Are. The book takes parents on a journey of discovery—from how the “perfection infection” affects their parenting to opening their eyes to unreal expectations—and helping parents to identify and celebrate the uniqueness of their children.From the beginning of the book to the end, I knew God was speaking directly to me through the authors. Influenced by my [...]

    4. Jill Savage and Kathy Koch have a theory- every parent has two sets of kids. The first set is the ones you always dreamed about, the Perfect Kids. The second set are the Imperfect Kids, the ones you sometimes don't even recognize as your own. You envisioned a reader, you got a fashion designer. You hoped for an aspiring doctor, he wants to me a mechanic. You want to pass on your love of people, she's an introvert. You adore music, the stuff screaming from his iPod is a din."These are mine?" Yes, [...]

    5. I knew from page one that No More Perfect Kids was going to be more than just a good read; it had the potential to be life changing. When I kept reading about how we feel the need to be perfect moms and that things like Facebook and Pinterest contribute to our feelings of failure, I knew this was the book for me at this stage in my parenting.Parenting is the hardest thing I've ever done and I'm the first to admit I make plenty of mistakes. Just like anything else, there are peaks and valleys and [...]

    6. I had the pleasure of reading another of Dr. Koch’s books, titled How Am I Smart?, and when I met Dr. Koch at the homeschool convention last year, she gave me No More Perfect Kids that she co-authored with Jill Savage. Yes, it’s taken me almost a year to read and review this book and I apologize to both authors for that, it has been a crazy year. One of the things I’m guilty of as a mom is wanting my children to be who I think they should be, aren’t we all? I want them to do this or that [...]

    7. No More Perfect Kids - Love your kids for who they are is a book written for both moms and dads and I have to say has changed and challenged me as a parent. God has given us the honor to parent our children and has given each of those children unique gifts and talents. It is our role as parents to help discover and develop those abilities and not live out our own lives through our kids.This book is designed to help parents become successful parents, not perfect parents. Jill describes how we all [...]

    8. SUMMARY:Jill Savage has an amazing talent. Her words help to celebrate motherhood, and each of her book chapters finds a way to relate to a diverse group of mothering situations and personalities ("Real Moms, Real Jesus" has been a favorite of mine). This book is no exception. Plus, she adds the power of Dr. Koch's amazing insights. I have been a part of one of Dr. Koch's lectures, and it was eye opening. I could not take notes fast enough! This book piggy backs with "No More Perfect Moms" that [...]

    9. Do you ever struggle with expectations for your kids? Are you looking to your kids to fulfill dreams in your own heart? Do you struggle with being a perfectionist? Chances are you may not even realize some of the expectations you have put on your children. I know I didn't before picking up this book. Social media, listening too closely to the voices of others, and our own misconceptions can stifle the growth of our children into who God created them to become.Most moms struggle with the gap betw [...]

    10. As the mother of 10 grown children I can without hesitation say that this book would have made such a difference in how we raised our family. I floundered around in the early years of parenting and it's a wonder my older kids turned out as great as they did. I was the worst kind of helicopter parent, expecting my children to live up to my expectations of perfection. The stress level in our family was incredible. I wish someone would have handed me this book the day I took my first child home fro [...]

    11. Do you struggle with perfection? Do you set too high of standards personally or have hopes, dreams or expectations for your kids (self or husband) that they may struggle to meet? I think every one of us lack contentment with others or even yourself, and not being content steals our joy! As believers, we are made for joy, created and formed by an amazing God for more. This book helps us think through and choose to live with excellence as the goal, instead of perfection. (and Jill and Dr. Kathy ma [...]

    12. The Follow up to No More Perfect Moms, which is easily my favorite book to recommend to any and every mom! I was lucky enough to be part of the launch team for this book, No More Perfect Kids but the opinions below are all mine! As a mom of four kids I know that parenting is the biggest challenge and yet most rewarding thing I have done in my life. Unfortunately I find that I have been infected by the perfection infection. The perfection infection comes from comparing my life, kids or myself to [...]

    13. This book is a great reminder that we need to love our kids for who they are, not what we want them to be. We need to stop expecting perfection from ourselves as parents, or from our children. By doing so, we are not allowing anyone to live up to their full potential. God has a plan for all of us. Sometimes, we get in the way of His plans by trying to be something other than who/what he intended for us. The same is true for our children.We all have dreams for our children, we sometimes put press [...]

    14. This book is fabulous. Hands down. Jill Savage and Dr. Kathy Koch have combined their experience and knowledge together to publish an amazing resource for moms AND dads! I promise you that you won't be disappointed - and you'll probably end up highlighting almost the entire book by the time you're done! This book has changed the way I view my children and the way I parent them. We have 3 children between the ages of 4.5 and 7 and a lot of the times I have parented "the herd." This book has opene [...]

    15. When asked to read No More Perfect Kids I was a tad skeptical. As a parent of 6 and a preschool teacher we are told how children should behave and how we are to react. Society norms and rules influence more than we believe. In this book we are shown God’s plan and will when raising our children.Jill Savage and Dr. Karen Koch co- authored a book with practical insight that helps parents look at parenting in a different light. Highlights of the book for me are the real-life stories that bring th [...]

    16. In No More Perfect Kids, Jill and Kathy take a look at our relationship with our kids. They explore our expectations of our kids and how those expectations can affect our relationships- especially when we set up unrealistic expectations. Jill discusses the "Perfection Infection" that can invade our relationships when we have these unrealistic expectations and how that can affect our children. She also gives "antidotes" to the infection, several mindsets that we can have that will help us to prot [...]

    17. I can't say enough great things about this book! As a mother of 5 kids, ranging from 18 down to 4, I wish I had this in my hands years ago. But the great thing is-it's not too late to become that parent your kids need. I'm so thankful for Jill Savage and Dr Kathy Koch-for their combined efforts that are undoubtedly Spirit-led. This is a book that must be read and ingested slowly. It helps parents not only recognize those damaging perfection-infection traits in their own lives, but also gives som [...]

    18. I really enjoyed this practical parenting book after hearing the authors speak on FOF (one of my favorite podcasts). This book is great for parents with normal kids, kids with developmental delays, kids who have been adopted, and kids who do not fit into parent's expectations. There's something addressed here for everyone, from how to deal with labels (it's gonna happen, so harness them for good), as well as lots of suggestions on how parents need to change to love their kids better (because mos [...]

    19. This is a GREAT book written by amazing ladies with a lot of first hand experience. Not only does it touch base on specific topics, it also gives scenarios and helpful anecdotes to help improve the way we, as parents, can POSITIVELY handle hurdles that our children may run in to. Can you relate to these few excerpts from the book? "We tell a child to 'act your age,' and then we realize he really is!" but "how realistic is this goal when we'd have to admit we don't always act our age?" We can't e [...]

    20. IF you've read any of Jill Savage's previous books, you know she has a way of reaching into a mother's heart and teaching so many invaluable lessons. Combined with Dr. Kathy Koch's incredible insight into the minds of children and their hearts, this book is powerful. NOT just for mothers! Both parents can greatly benefit from taking the time to read this book and then begin applying it to the way they parent their children. One of the best books I've ever read that truly shows parents how to rea [...]

    21. One of the hardest things about laying down perfection is knowing what to pick up instead. When I read “No More Perfect Kids,” I realized trading in perfection for contentment and excellence is what I needed to do. That’s how this book is, seeping into the reader’s real life because it’s packed full of truth that applies to everyday life. Of course I’m not perfect – and neither are my kids or husband, but we’re being perfected by a perfect God. I’m certain they’ll be glad I r [...]

    22. Throughout the pages of this book you'll find yourself understanding the scenarios, agreeing with things you need to change in your life and hopeful for the future that lies ahead for both your kids and for you. While the past can't be changed, Jill teaches ways you can connect and teach your children, as well as growing yourself. All of which is part of being perfected by God, which happens throughout our lives. Jill tackles difficult topics such as perfection, change, acceptance, failure, purp [...]

    23. Whether you are a Dad, Mom, grandparent, teacher, or someone who works with children, you should read this book! It not only helps you realize, or affirm what you already know, that your children are VERY individual and indeed may be very different from your imagined picture perfect portrait of them.Then it provides you with the tools to help you and you children develop individually as intended by our Creator. Included on page 91-93 of the book is the list of core needs, which Dr Kathy expounds [...]

    24. Jill Savage has done it again, this time with the help of Dr. Kathy Koch. No More Perfect Kids has so many insights that I have taken to heart. I had been "parenting the herd" for a long time, and now I'm better equipped to understand my children's individual strengths and abilities. My children will never be perfect, but I can get rid of the Perfection Infection and have more realistic, healthy expectations.My most important take-away from No More Perfect Kids was the "antidotes" to the Perfect [...]

    25. My kids aren't perfect. I don't want them to be. I feel like they learn from their mistakes and their failures. BUT sometimes my reaction is not what it needs to be to let them know that I don't expect perfection. "No More Perfect Kids" offers parents tons of awesome "techniques" for handling how they react to their children's mistakes and failures, how to let their kids no that being unique is okay, and to let their kids no how important they are to us. As you go through the book you will notic [...]

    26. Not for moms of preschoolersFirst, the positive: it might be good for parents of older kids. That's about all I can say. After LOVING no more perfect moms, I thought this would be a great way to expand on the parenting chapter. However, my oldest is 3 and I found it very difficult to relate to the examples. Most of the material focuses on older children. The tone of the book also has too much psycho-babble and is too negative. For a book that's supposed to help parents become more positive and t [...]

    27. This is a book that every parent should have on hand. Written for both moms and dads, Jill Savage and Dr. Kathy Koch address the “perfection infection” and the dangers of parenting with that mindset. They equip parents with simple tools that help them release the perfect expectation and free their children to be the best that God created them to be. This book helped me to see and change my parenting so that I don’t “stand with my arms folded in front of me, but stretched out towards my c [...]

    28. When I read No More Perfect Moms, I learned so much about how I place expectations on myself, and how to break free from what Jill calls "The Perfection Infection". When I was asked to be on the launch team for the sequel, No More Perfect Kids, I was elated! So many times as parents, we dream about our kids before we even meet them, and while that is fun, it can be harmful if we let those ideas cloud us from seeing who our kids really are. I'm so encouraged by this book. In a world of comparison [...]

    29. With experience, knowledge and a good dose of humor, Jill Savage and Dr. Kathy have found a way to encourage us to be more accepting of our ourselves and our children without ever letting them lose sight of the personal excellence they are capable of achieving. Thank you to everyone who shared their own imperfect stories! It's always reassuring to know you're not alone. Jill has diagnosed our "Perfection Infection" and worked with Dr. Kathy to find the "cure". Full of useful, practical tips for [...]
