From the Back Cover:

Yes, your kids can
make a difference!

As a mother of four children ages fifteen
to twenty-seven, author Susan Vogt knows
intimately what it is to feel vulnerable and
unsure in parenting. In her unique and
thoughtful guide to raising socially conscious
children, Vogt acknowledges that there are
no guarantees in parenting while offering
creative and realistic parenting strategies.
With insights based on years of experience
as a counselor and family-life educator,
personal anecdotes, reflections by her children
on what worked and what didn’t, and the
stories of other families, she sets out to
inspire, equip, and comfort parents in their
awesome task of raising kids who will
make a difference.


“This is one of the most creative and
engaging books that I’ve read in a long
time. The author and the entire Vogt
family speak through its pages, offering
us their hard-earned treasures of
parenting and being parented.”
—H. Richard McCord
Executive Director, Committee
on Marriage and Family Life,
U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops


“Vogt writes with a delightful blend of
wry humor, candor, and sensitive selfrevelation.
The section in each chapter
written by Vogt’s children on her efforts
to be a responsible parent add to the
fun and practical value of this book.”
—Joe H. Leonard
Director, Family Ministries
and Human Sexuality, National
Council of the Churches of Christ
in the USA

“This book is more real than any other
book on parenting I’ve ever seen;
it helps parents aim high and think
through possibilities without a guilt
trip about being less than perfect.”
—Kathleen Finley
Author, The Seeker’s Guide to
Building a Christian Marriage
