I was visiting with a friend who immediately said she'd like 4 copies of my book! Sight unseen, without seeing the cover, without knowing the cost. What a very nice friend. It made me realize that people are hungry for ideas to help them raise their children in positive ways. Not that there aren't hundreds of very good parenting books available (I have quoted from many of them in my book). However, the job of raising children is so complex, so demanding, and sometimes so puzzling, it's hard to find the right combination of "tools" that work for each one. That is why I wrote Raising Kids with Love, Honor and Respect; Recipes for Success. I truly believe that if we always remember to regard our kids with unconditional love, honoring them as an individual and treating them with respect we won't go too far wrong. I hope my book will help parents know how to do that.
