Item description for Parenting on Point [With CD] by James C. Williams...
Overview Parenting on Point is the idea of being on course, heading in the right direction, going down the path that God wants us to follow. As parents, we're responsible for leading our children along this path. This book will walk you through the process of creating your own personalized parenting plan. Having this plan won't keep your family anchored to the important values, principles, and beliefs that will redirect you and help you to keep God in the center of your lives.
Publishers Description This book will walk parents through the important aspects of a parenting plan, offering practical tips and strategies aimed at keeping their family anchored to important family values and beliefs that will redirect them when the tug of popular culture pulls them off course. An accompanying compact disc helps individuals "get to know" the author as they listen to him tell his own powerful story, including the tragic death of his son and his rollercoaster ride with God, and hear his dynamic presentation of the book's highlights. The CD can be used as an introductory preview to the book as well as a helpful and convenient "refresher course" for busy parents of preschoolers to teens.

Parent Must Read Sep 16, 2002
If your family is busy like most of us, or if you just need to learn how to connect with your child, you must read this book. James Williams let's the reader look inside his family life and how he handled different situations. This book reads like a novel! Finally, a book that helps with all types of children, not just the strong-willed child, but all different personalities.
I learned all lot from this book, how to see through my childs eyes and to really listen to them. We need to learn these tools early in life so they will come to us when they are facing difficult times.
This book shows partents how to stop fighting over things that we want our children to be responsible for. Mr. Williams gives you ideas how to put responsibilites back on the child not you, so therefore the fights stop. This has helped our family to really have a relaxing dinner time.
