Real-life Wisdom From a Gifted Family Communicator
"As a young parent, what I needed was a flesh-and-blood veteran parent who had been there. I wanted to talk to a mom who looked like she'd been up all night once of twice, and a dad who still had a twinkle in his eye because he remembered the good times. I wanted a parent with some scars. Maybe a bite on his index finger. Possibly a dent on her chin from a misguided fork."
From the Introduction
If I Could Raise My Kids Again delivers what parents young and old need most: frank insights from a parent who's been there. With warmth and wit, author William L. Coleman shares how to:
gain children's respect
walk the narrow path between too much and too little discipline
allow children to make age-appropriate choices
free children to take risks and learn from pain
find a church that allies itself with families and
cultivate children's self-confidence and responsibility.
