Parenting With Fire: Lighting Up the Family with Passion and Inspiration
Transmitting your passions to your children, motivating them with shared goals, and getting them excited about values are the most important things you can do as a parent. With great humor and insight, Shmuley Boteach, bestselling author and former host of TLC's Shalom in the Home, lays out his guiding principles for taking your child to the mountaintop, and creating a parent-child bond based on vitality, exuberance, and mutual respect.
Everywhere you go these days, you see unruly, unhappy kids, or lifeless, listless teenaged zombies. Admit it: even your own kids can be hard to reach. They prefer friends to family, video games to books, and headphones to conversations. But you’ve given them everything—what could be missing?
According to Boteach, the missing ingredient is inspiration: giving your child the example, incentive, and tools to make something of themselves, to live life at the wave’s crest.
