Parenting the Body, Mind, and Spirit

Front Cover
WestBow Press, Apr 28, 2011 - Family & Relationships - 124 pages

This book focuses on parenting the three elements of the human: the body, the mind, and the spirit.

Traditional parenting skills have been abandoned or conveniently forgotten. Social pressures have detoured many self-respecting parents down a one-way street of irresponsibility. Within these pages are tried and true child-rearing principles that have sustained mankind for centuries and many generations. There is an old saying that if it ain't broke, dont fix it. Modern social architects have attempted to do that for several generations, and the mass media has fallen in lock-step with their ideas.

Why do we have children suing parents? Why do we have school administrations punishing the victims in school mishaps and giving less punishment to the perpetrator? Why do we have school administrators and teachers afraid to punish a student for fear of a lawsuit? Why do we have television productions in both cartoon and real life formats that show children disrespecting their parents as a norm in everyday life? I want you to engage your God-given talents with regard to raising children. It is through strong family units that we can return our society to a respectable community. It is through good parenting and taking responsibility for the children we give birth to that there can be a civil society.
