Growing up, I had no experience in dealing with children. I didn't have baby-sitting experience, and I didn't have friends who had little siblings. so when I gave birth to my first child I had a horrible revelation. This child came with no owner's manual. I didn't know what to do.
That realization, along with my desire to be the best Mom possible, started my search for information on how to raise good children. I began reading, and listening to audio tapes, and questioning others who had older children. I found out that having "good children" is not enough to insure a child's success in life. What I found out is I needed to equip my children with the proper foundation that allowed them to grow up making "right" decisions.
My children are now in their 20's, and each is following a path that fits who they are. My oldest daughter, a public school teacher, has taken the principles contained in this book and has used them to produce healthy communities of first and second graders who thrive in thier individual giftings. It works. If you put it to work, it will work for you, too.
