Paul Coughlin gives parents good news: They can raise assertive and confident children. While showing parents how to avoid over-parenting and how to instill the virtues of toughness, wisdom, and courage, he paints a clearer picture of the real Jesus, not just the meek-and-mild side often presented to children. By shaping confident and virtuous children, parents are giving them the tools to live a happy and more abundant life--no matter how old they get.
