Overview

"A work of superior quality and spiritual excellence ... This revision of Morgenthaler's ground-breaking book on parenting encourages everyone to examine the whole child, including mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual dimensions."--Dr. Donald Ratcliff, editor of Handbook of Preschooler Religious Education

Your child's first three years are critical in faith development and lay the foundation for future growth. God uses you to nurture your child's spiritual and emotional formation, as well as physical and cognitive development.

Right from the Start helps you discover how young children learn and the countless ways your interactions teach about God and His love. In addition, Morgenthaler offers new information about brain development and worship and an extensive resource list. Appropriate for individual use, discussion material in each chapter expands Right from the Start for a group setting.
