    This book should be read by every parent!!

    From Bad Grades to a Great Life! by Dr. Charles Fay has become my favorite book in the Love and Logic® catalog. I have been facilitating Love and Logic parenting classes for over twenty years, and have shared many of their books, CDs, and DVDs with parents in my classes. This book, however, is one that I am going to suggest that ALL families read, long before their children even enter school. If you only look at the title, you might think my suggestion is a strange one. My thoughts are such, that if you read the book early on in your parenting career, you may never end up dealing with a child¿s bad grades. Some of the subjects related in the book are: 1) Are we focusing on the right things? 2) What are your child¿s gifts? 3) What about manners and respect? 4) Do you know how important chores are and how they relate to school success? 5) How much ¿stuff¿ does your child have? 6) Would you like to raise a calmer, more motivated child? 7) Can all children be successful? 8) How can your child make a difference in this world?
    9) Do you know how to love your child for who he/she is?

    Dr. Charles Fay is a psychologist who has been involved with Love and Logic his whole life. Having grown up with Love and Logic, his father being Jim Faye, one of the founders of Love and Logic, Inc.® Dr. Fay is a parent, author, and consultant, and the strategies that he teaches have made a huge impact on many people, including those that have participated in my classes. I¿m seeing this firsthand in many families. As I stated earlier, I will be highly recommending From Bad Grades to a Great Life! to ALL participants in the future. If you want a handbook on strategies for raising children, this is the book for you.
