"Wisdom for Parents" provides a wealth of practical insights regarding parenting from a number of leading parent educators and is a valuable resource to both parents and the parenting educators with whom they interact.

This collection of advice-giving on parenting goes a long way in helping to sort out what might work and perhaps what probably won't work with a particular childrearing problem. As a parent-educator for over 30 years, I've found that parents are tremendously empowered to have a variety of approaches to apply to a number of different childrearing dilemmas. The resources here are excellent beginnings for some while also serving as significant alternatives for others in their attempts to work effectively as parents with children. These provide important food for thought on how to approach a variety of childrearing situations in these modern times.

Endorsement by Faculty Using book for Interns:
This book offers so many wonderful lessons on so many levels. I?m having our Family Life Education interns at The Parenting Center read this book prior to working with families. Many of our interns do not yet have children so this will give them some positive examples and stories to share with clients to make their interactions even more impactful.
