Your Family Constitution: A Modern Approach to Family Values and Household Structure
What do you get when you cross two working professionals, two active children and a dog? Chaos! For over a decade, Scott Gale and his wife, Karen, juggled three bowling bowls -- children, personal needs, and careers. Clear and consistent expectations simply did not factor into their frantic lifestyle. In the wake of a Mother's Day family meltdown, Gale took time to evaluate his family's challenges and induce change, piecing together a powerful tool to restore family harmony. This 'Family Constitution' became the catalyst for clarity, consistency and commitment ('3C's), enabling his family to enjoy mutually understood boundaries and much-needed structure. This book shares Gale's innovative parenting tool and, more importantly, reveals the step-by-step process he went through to become a happier and more effective parent. He guides readers through the rewarding process of creating their own custom Family Constitution, while sharing many hilarious and personal accounts of parenting successes and failures. This is a life-changing technique that parents can easily apply to make their own families stronger.
