This book is more than just a parenting book. It’s a tool to use with your child. Each chapter is divided into two parts. The first part is a fiction story about a family who experiences problems and then learns a new tool. Read this section to your child. It presents family issues from the parent’s perspective. Children are often blinded by their own viewpoint and seeing the problem from the parent’s view is eye-opening. Furthermore, it opens opportunities to talk about ways your family relates and ways you can make changes.

Our goal is to raise kids whose hearts are sensitive to the Lord, and we love your practical advice about addressing sibling rivalry and anger. We’ll be keeping it handy and giving copies to the parents in our community.”
“What an amazing book to help you raise a really great kid.”
“I find it very interesting that television is full of advertisements that want the viewer to improve their abdominal muscles, improve their waist line, improve their wrinkled face, improve their diets and on and on and on. Yet not one person is encouraging the viewers to improve their home life. Scott Turansky has hit upon the most urgent message for the American Family. The family is falling apart, the structure of love that ties our society together is disintegrating quickly. I urge people everywhere to read the timely book and its healing and happy message.”
“A Biblical, spiritually excellent, and highly practical guide for parents who desire to make powerful changes to their parenting. From cover to cover, I was delighted to find familiar principles I practiced in my own parenting during a season when my husband and I were cooperating with the Lord for our family’s restoration. This book would have been a favorite had it been available to me then.
The timeless truths contained in this priceless volume, when acted upon, will give you a much coveted predictable outcome for your parenting efforts as they did me.”
