Life Teachings: Raising a Child encourages you to think about parenting as a very large process that you have quite a bit of control over. It is a process that will make a strong impression on your child for life.
As you think about your parenting and how you want it to be, honor what you know about you; your partner; the surroundings where you find yourself; and your dreams. Consider important things like what you really value in people, what you think is important in life, and how you were raised.
Life Teachings: Raising a Child provides a list of 20 qualities that the author and her husband wanted their parenting to encourage. The list is followed by stories of how the life qualities were developed in their children. As you read, you’ll find yourself thinking about the adult that your own parenting will form. You’ll become a more intentional parent.

The first twenty years of my life were spent in Kentucky, and I remember adults from the family and community talking on the porch on warm, lazy afternoons and into the evenings. I remember that many important matters were settled and learned about in that easy, musing fashion. I heard much wisdom transferred on that childhood porch.
The porch musings were filled with wisdom based upon someone's experiences and knowledge. There were many facets to the porch musings and each who heard the talking took a little more from the experience than just the topic at hand. So, too, Life Teachings: Raising a Child there is more here than meets the eye. Using your own intellect and your experiences, you will find information in each small chapter that goes beyond the topic at hand.
I invite you to pull up a rocker and have some iced tea as we muse together over the crucial matter of forming a foundation for a child. The introduction tells you of the philosophy that guided my child raising. You'll find that important, for it sets the scene. Then, we get into the stories that tell you how the philosophy played. Perhaps in our porch musings, you will find some wisdom here, something that will be of use to you as you interact with a child.About the Author:
