Parenthood can be a delight, a blessing, and an experience that will give you many proud moments. Parenthood, on the contrary, can be frustrating, discouraging, and can lead to many tearful and embarrassing moments. This book will teach parents the tools necessary to create children who are survivors. Children who are independent, respectful, responsible, frugal, and resilient. I know parenting can be a joy, because my three wonderful loving children have given me a lifetime of joy and continue to do so. I also know that parenting can be a struggle and a major stress.
Watching parents and children struggle has pushed me to write this book. My oldest son who is raising two beautiful girls said, "Make it short. We don't have time to read all the philosophical stuff." So here it is, practical tried and true methods for molding your child.
Remember, some children will be easy. Some children will be very difficult. That is the nature of man. All the effort expended early on will come back in blessings ten fold.
Keep the faith!

I thought Edison was credited with inventing the light bulb, not Einstein?

About the author (2011)

For 31 years, I have been an educator. As a college student, my first job was working with preschool children. I have been a teacher, assistant principal, principal, superintendent of schools, director of instruction, and finished my career as a principal and teacher for alternative high school students. I have 3 children, 2 step-sons, and two beautiful granddaughters. During my 34 years working with children and parents, I have learned parenting is the key to a child's lifelong success. Children can be successful without effective parenting, but this is not the norm. Often, a teacher or another caring adult is necessary to inspire a child and lead them to success. Just like a classroom, what you do in the early days or years of a child's life sets the tone for the remainder of the year or for the remainder of the child's life. It is definitely easier to start out as an effective parent than to begin effective parenting after the child is older. It is definitely never too late, but habits acquired by the child can be difficult to change. I know parenting can be a joy, because my three wonderful, loving children have given me a lifetime of joy and continue to do so. I also have observed that parenting can be a struggle and a major stress.
