Item description for Raising Great Kids Workbook For Parents Of School by Henry Cloud & John Townsend...
Overview Cloud and Townsend struck a nerve with readers eager for parenting advice that is neither too strict nor overly lenient. In conjunction with MOPS, this workbook gives parents of children ages 6-12 hands-on application to integrate the principles described in "Raising Great Kids". The authors hone in on issues especially pertaining to this age group, including how parents can instill delay of gratification, the ability to lose and grieve, and the capacity to forgive.
Publishers Description A workbook for parents of school-age children (6-12) to accompany Raising Great Kids, which is a joint project of authors Henry Cloud, John Townsend and Mothers of Preschoolers International (MOPS). In Raising Great Kids, Henry Cloud and John Townsend approach parenting from the perspective of their unique theological and developmental system, and MOPS provides the hands-on application.Most Christian approaches to character building focus on obedience to God and on moral functioning, but the authors will show how biblical character includes competent functioning in other areas such as relationship skills, responsibility and follow through, self-control, perseverance, delay of gratification, ability to lose and grieve, and the ability to forgive. Most resources for parents emphasize either structure and moral functioning over love, safety, and security or vice versa. Raising Great Kids provides a balance between these two parenting approaches.

Reviews - What do customers think about Raising Great Kids Workbook For Parents Of School ?
Very helpful! Feb 27, 2006
This is a great book that helps provide guiding principles on raising kids through the different stages in their lives. This is not a "how to" raise your kids methods type of book as much as one that integrates a balanced approach to child rearing.
Possible the best child-rearing book available!! Jul 30, 1999
I loved this book. As a mother of a six month old it was a blessing to find this book. It opened my eyes to areas in my life that I needed to work on so that I will be able to teach my child when the time comes. It also gave me an outline of what I need to be mindful of as a parent raising a child. Excellent!!!

This is a surprisingly in-depth outline of how to grow great young adults from little rugrats. The authors are quite adept at explaining complex ideas in straight forward layman's terms which, considering that they are both board-certified psycologists, shows they have a unique talent for communicating.
The focus of the book is on character and spiritual development. Many examples from both Dr. Cloud and Dr. Townsend of real life (and biblical) situations helped me understand how to take my child from a self-centered kid to a caring, responsible young adult.
Several moms have not been able to put it down when they saw it at our house. It doesn't have the flashy layout and colors of many modern books, but apparently the message is still riveting for mothers looking for encouragement and ideas.
I wish this book had been around years ago when my kids were just starting out. Still, it has become an invaluable reference for my wife and I in dealing with day-to-day family life with kids.
