    "Great Book for Mothers and Fathers"

    I see my boys struggling to be successful at school and have found this book to be very helpful by providing a framework for giving them what they need to feel good about themselves and feel good about life in general. Raising children isn't just having them, feeding them and making sure they get to school - it's a full time commitment if you want them to have rich lives and be happy with the expectations society and our Creator has for them and for the human race to thrive in general. If you believe this and are looking to understand what is needed to develop your son to fulfill his role in life, then this is a book for you.
