That Makes Sense!: What Leadership Training Taught Me about Family Relationships

Front Cover
Dog Ear Publishing, 2009 - Family & Relationships - 108 pages
Come along for the ride on Eldon and Penny's crazy journey as they go from child rearing "experts" in their early 20's as newlyweds, to being ready for the insane asylum 8 kids later in their 40's!
Why won't one set of rules work for the whole family? What do you mean Mars and Venus? I think some of us are from different GALAXIES!
It actually wasn't that bad, but it sure wasn't harmonious either.
Then, along comes my business and the constant Leadership Development Training. All of a sudden, we started seeing the parallels and applications to our family.
Join us for an enjoyable and entertaining discussion on how understanding these principles has changed our family and could do the same for yours!
How often have we joked about wishing they would have given us an "Owner's Manual" when we got married? Or, why aren't we required to pass a "Marriage and Parenting" course before we can get a marriage license? Don't babies come with an instruction book?
THAT MAKES SENSE is all about what I wish we could have been taught 25 years ago as we were getting our start in the family building game! It could have saved us a lot of grief if we had just known some simple principles that would help us understand ourselves, each other, and the kids!
The principles of family relationships and how to build your family on a strong and safe foundation are sometimes some of the most elusive concepts to find.
Why do we always seem to choose a spouse who is our opposite? Why does the same set of strategies never seem to work with any two of our kids? How can X number of kids all raised in the same environment turn out so vastly different? Sometimes it makes you doubt the science of genetics!
There are answers. Sometimes they come from the most unlikely places too. Who would have thought that there would be so much overlap between business building and family building? Not me certainly. But here it is. What I wish my parents would have taught me about family building!
THAT MAKES SENSE...(Finally)...What Leadership Training Taught Me About Family Relationships! The Principles of Family Building 101!
