Break the Cycle of "Nice" Parents Raising "Nice"--but Weak--Kids Today's children are more worried and fearful than children of previous generations, and well-intended parents are raising some of the culture's wimpiest kids. Overprotective mothers and fathers teach their kids to live passively; kids, in turn, become less and less able to make decisions, to strengthen their minds, and to cultivate courage--upon which, wrote C.S. Lewis, all other virtues depend. Paul Coughlin, father of three school-age children, longtime youth soccer coach, calls parents to bring up sons and daughters who will live out the whole spectrum of the abundant life Jesus came to give us. These children will not only know right from wrong, they will also embrace the integrity and courage to do what's right. Insightful and practical, No More Jellyfish, Chickens, or Wimps will challenge you to spark a change for good in your children.

From the Back Cover:

Endorsements "Our children are moving rapidly moving from dependence to independence. Our job is to raise responsible adults who have courage and character. Paul Coughlin's wonderful book will equip you for this amazing journey of parenting. It's a life-changing book." --Jim Burns, Ph.D., President, HomeWord Author of Creating an Intimate Marriage and Confident Parenting "This is a powerful book that finally dispels the myth that defending oneself is 'unchristian.' As believers we are duty bound to teach our children that honor, justice, courage in the face of adversity, and defending the weak are not only the right things to own and do, they are a Christian's obligation. Bravo! Paul Coughlin, for giving back to us our warrior spirit." --Brad Stine, Comedian, author, actor
