About the Book &
Other Resources for Parents

“This book is a must read for every parent and every parent educator. It literally distills parental wisdom from the best educators/minds in the country who not only know their trade but who are parents themselves.  No other book anywhere has this plethora of wisdom—a true find of the ages.”   — David Knox, author of Choices in Relationships: An Introduction to Marriage and the Family (11th ed.) v

“An important contribution to the field of parenting education and one that willinspire and inform both parents and professionals alike.”

Michael H. Popkin, founder and President, Active Parenting Publishers

Why it can be helpful for most Parents to read this book
(as well as students of child development and family science):

It is NOT trying to promote or "sell" any one parenting approach. Rather, it is an excellent review, discussion, and explanation of most of the major parenting approaches?a great overview! Also, it includes helpful tips on allowances, ideas for discussing sexuality with children or teens, a dad talking to his daughter about boys, why eating meals together is important, what real courage and loyalty involves among family and friends (an important "read-together" article for parent and child), and more, in short 2-4 page writings by Certified Family Life Educators (CFLE).

A lengthier concluding chapter provides similar short reviews and discussion of major parenting theories and ideas as evolved over the past eight decades. It is all presented in an understandable conceptual framework, well documented with numerous suggestions for further reading. Excellent for parents who may never take a parenting course.
