Somewhere in the busyness of life many of us have forgotten-or perhaps weren't even taught-the basics of good parenting and our kids are suffering for it. We have good intentions, but daily frustrations and ongoing struggles might be evidence that we were better prepared to drive a car or pursue our career than raise children.

To counter the usual trial-and-error

Overview

Somewhere in the busyness of life many of us have forgotten-or perhaps weren't even taught-the basics of good parenting and our kids are suffering for it. We have good intentions, but daily frustrations and ongoing struggles might be evidence that we were better prepared to drive a car or pursue our career than raise children.

To counter the usual trial-and-error method of parenting, Jim Burns offers time-tested advice and strategies for today's families. Infused with his signature candidness and practicality, each chapter explores a different aspect of parenting-from breaking generational chains of dysfunction and creating a warm atmosphere at home to handling discipline issues and blessing your children with a legacy of faith. Helpful follow-up exercises and questions along the way reinforce solid parenting skills and provide a foundation for developing your own family plan.
