Item description for To Prepare or To Protect by Lori A. McGuire...
Overview Books on how to be good parents fly off bookstore shelves by the millions. Daytime talk shows are filled with advice on how to raise children. Troubled parents need not look very far to find parenting advice. Still, teenage violence, domestic abuse, depression, and suicide remain disturbingly high. Perhaps we need to find a way to merge contemporary parental concerns with the teachings of God. The battle cry in many churches today is one of segregation, building a wall between our children and a dangerous world. The problem is that children see the world as a vast place of opportunity, not as an evil fortress waiting to devour them. Parents consequently are torn between advice to shield and protect their children from the world and allowing children to make mistakes to find their way. To Prepare or Protect offers parents a direction that removes this either/or dilemma. The book's aim is to help parents recognize and teach their children timeless principles that will prepare them for life in a world that is not always perfect. Most importantly, parents will learn to enjoy their children in a way they only dreamed possible, and will develop a greater confidence that their children will be able to forge a productive path for themselves through a difficult world.

My eyes have been opened Sep 22, 2003
I have read many, many, many parenting books in the past. Some have been good, others not. But this one is by far hands down the best parenting book I have ever read. You can forget all of the rest. This is the one we all need. I would reccomend this book to any parent who really wants to make a difference in the lives of their children. Much of my confusion as a parent is now gone !!! Thank you for creating this masterpiece. I am forever in your debt.
