Catherine Musco Garcia - Prats and Joseph A. Garcia-Prats, MD would be remarkable if only for the fact that they have ten sons (ages one through nineteen). What's really impressive is that they've succeeded at raising ten "good kids" who are not only successful at both their studies and sports - but are polite, compassionate, and responsible - and active participants in the cooperative, mutually-supportive "working together" that helps families thrive.
Good Families Don't Just Happen is their program for creating a happy, organized, family - despite the inevitable conflicts, crises, and sacrifices that all families encounter. With simple advice and easy-to-follow principles that help you make your family run as smoothly as a well-managed organization, they provide the tools and the inspiration you need to create your own "good family."

I am in one of there sons classes and i think that the book and there kids are very good.
The real bottom line for the success of the Garcia-Prats in raising their family is spirituality. From this all else evolves - respect, compassion, care, understanding, being 'other' rather than 'self' oriented, and the myriad of other positive things that seem to be so lacking in most families today. With a spirtual upbringing, we found that our daughter (18) and son (17) were able to turn their backs on peer pressure and live their lives as good people, active in their church and community. Thanks to the Garcia-Prats for this wonderful book. We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
