Publisher's Summary

What does it take to raise great kids? Do you get tough? Or show acceptance? Lay down the rules? Or lighten up? In this audio guide, Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend show you how to avoid the twin extremes of permissiveness and overcontrol, and instead give your child the care and acceptance that make grace real to your child and the discipline and firmness that give direction. Drs. Cloud and Townsend provide you with important parenting advice that will help you reach middle-ground in the way you raise your kids, while helping them to cultivate 6 essential character traits: connectedness, responsibility, reality, competence, morality, and worship/spiritual life. The authors are popular speakers and co-hosts of the nationally broadcast New Life Live radio program.

    "Great Book"

    These authors do a wonderful job of bringing out the psychological principles in the Bible. I would recomend this book to anyone. Obviously people who do not like books with references to the Bible will not like this book. That is not a problem with this book.

    Story
    "Clinical psychologists input plus God's principles"
    If you could sum up Raising Great Kids in three words, what would they be?

    our legacy is to leave great kids


    What other book might you compare Raising Great Kids to and why?

    boundaries with kids by the same authors. because the two books have a common denominator which is having children who will impact this world. And God is put at the center and play a pivotal role,parents being the actors.


    What about Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend ’s performance did you like?

    Dr townsend and Dr Cloud are very knowledgeable and confident in their way of presenting facts and recommendations


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book is just amazing


    Any additional comments?

    This book is an important tool for parents and parents to be

    "The Bible Bouncing got me down"

    I got really distracted by all the citings of the bible. Truly worthwhile points don't need to be constantly justified.
