9780062513885: Family First: Winning the Parenting Game

Deloris Jordan knows a thing or two about being a mom. She is the mother of five high-achieving children - Ronald, Deloris, Larry, Michael, and Roslyn - a sought-after national speaker on the family, and the volunteer president of the Michael Jordan Foundation. Her galvanizing message on encouraging responsibility and a passion for excellence has inspired parents across the country. Being the mother of basketball's greatest player has given Deloris Jordan a platform, but it's her experience bringing up an accomplished family in a challenging environment, along with her deep commitment to church and community, that gave her the expertise she passes on in this invaluable handbook for parents of children of all ages. Using warm anecdotes and never-before-told family stories, Jordan paints a realistic and uplifting portrait of the potential power of parents. She explores the universal goals that parents set for their children - self-discipline, responsibility, perseverance, moral values, and the desire to achieve - and explains the practical tools and strategies theJordan family uses to realize those goals. And through personal examples and wise, plainspoken insight, Deloris Jordan challenges, guides, and encourages parents who long to do everything they can to help their children learn, grow, prosper, and succeed.

About the Author:

Deloris Jordan is co-founder and president of the Michael Jordan Foundation, a volunteer organization that raises funds to help disadvantaged children. She is a popular speaker on the family and parenting at schools, churches, and organizations around the country. She is basketball legend Michael Jordan s mother.

From Booklist:

Deloris Jordan admits that she is no expert on child rearing and that her experience is not unique but, rather, the "ordinary experience of a mother of 5 children." Yet she is aware that being Michael Jordan's mother has given her a "platform" to give back to her community and to work with children. From her experiences, she has observed children and parents who struggle with making and keeping the "family first." She uses examples of encounters as president and cofounder of the Michael Jordan Foundation, which was established to raise funds to help disadvantaged children and to stress the importance of family to child rearing in today's world. (Recently Michael announced the closing of the foundation.) Her heartfelt family examples of instances where she employed the techniques she shares are warm and genuine. Jordan stresses that some of the crucial child-rearing attitudes that she and her husband, Ray, shared include a commitment to parenting, a vision of the family's goals, communication, flexibility, and love. If Michael's soaring success is grounded in his family upbringing, then certainly Deloris Jordan's wisdom may be worth noting. Lillian Lewis
