    Excellent!

    As a parent I know that I "do" many things correctly and "do" many things incorrectly when it comes to raising my children. So, when a great book comes out that will encourage me and teach me as a parent I grab it and read it!
    You Can Raise Courageous & Confident Kids by Mary DeMuth is a book that all parents will want to read. Mary gently but thoroughly takes us chapter by chapter through areas that may call for tough parenting but the end purpose is raising courageous and confident kids. Also, I sensed that Mary must be a parent herself since the encouragement and advice "sounds like" a seasoned parent....a parent who has been there and done that AND is passing on the learning to other parents.
    Chapter 6 on page 59 spoke to me. This chapter is entitled "Conversation." There is a quote beneath the title and the quote by Marjorie Thompson states, "The Jewish family has been characterized as a 'table spirituality' in which the central feasts and holy days are celebrated around the altar of the family table." Mary talks of the family dinner table where children are encouraged to share happenings from the day. Her family plays a game called "high-low." This where the children share the high from their day and the low. By eating together the family bonds and the children learn. A most.excellent chapter!
    Actually this is one of those 5 star books that needs to be in every parents home library and passed on to new parents. I will be giving this book as a baby shower gift.
    ** This book would also make a great-tastic small group study book. Included, as a resource guide at the back of the book are "Notes" and "Questions for Discussion."

    Excellent book for Christian parents

    I am so glad I have read the book You Can Raise Courageous & Confident Kids: Preparing Your Children for the World They Live In by Mary E. DeMuth.

    This is an excellent book for parents. The author gives ideas and reasons that we as parents need to prepare our world for the postmodern world in which we leave. There is a balance we must find between sheltering our children so much that they will be unable to function when they grow up and giving them strong roots to be able to live in the world but not be like the world. The author shares her own experiences with her children as they made the decision to move to France. The purpose of this book is to help parents help their children effectively share the love of Jesus in the world in which they are growing up.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the writing style of the author. I highly recommend this book.

    Thank you to Harvest House Publishers for providing this book for my honest review.
