The Secret

It seems like a secret. At least I rarely hear or read about the one thing that is essential to raising kids you want to keep. This book is about the one thing parents must support, teach, and do to raise children that they will be proud to keep. The secret is teaching your child to willingly live under parental authority. Until your child learns to live under your authority, there is little hope that he can, as an adult, effectively live under self-control in a society of laws and rules. If he doesn't learn to willingly submit to the authority of his parents, there will be unbearable strain and tension in the home, and likely in the classroom as well. However, children who do learn to live under their parents' authority can grow up to be adults who know how to live under self-control in a complex and demanding society. The adult reward is nothing short of marvelous!
