Parenting by the Book:Raising Awesome Kids in Troubled Times

Raising Awesome Kids in Troubled Times
Today’s featured book is written by Christians who may be considered veterans in the fight for the Gospel: Sam & Geri Laing. The book (ISBN 1884553230) is entitled Raising Awesome Kids in Troubled Times.
Since it was published by a small publisher – Discipleship Publications International – the odds are good that finding a new copy, unless you visit their website, is hard; yet, used copies may be found on any of the big sites and this book is well worth the read!
Sam and Geri Laing discuss not only the “how” of parenting, but much more importantly help you to set up your family structure so that what you say with your mouth will actually take hold in your as well as your children’s hearts and you will have a home atmosphere that is conducive to positive parenting. Refreshingly different from other parenting books that write numerous chapters on disciplining a child but only a very few on setting a basically good kid up for positive life experiences, Raising Awesome Kids in Troubled Times will demonstrate how you will be able to receive obedience from your children by enabling them to obey. Additionally, you will learn how to give your children the confidence they need to live in an upside down world where that which is good is generally depicted as being boring, while that which is bad is oftentimes showcased as being ultimately desirable.
In a separate chapter, the authors also address some of the most commonly made mistakes parents make, some of which you will most likely not even be aware of! After all, who has not fallen for the myth of “quality” over “quantity” time which is little more than a legend?
With a back to basics approach, every parent who reads this book will be equipped to teach the little things and get the big things through to their kids as well.
