Publishers Description It's no secret: something has happened to America's families. Dramatic shifts in our culture mean that what was once an acceptable way to produce mature, capable adults has now all but disappeared. In Rite of Passage Parenting, family expert Walker Moore explains how that happened. And after concisely assessing the problem, Moore teaches you how to build into your children''s lives the essential experiences every child needs: (1) an authentic Rite of Passage, (2) Significant Tasks, (3) Logical Consequences, and (4) Grace Deposits from parents, grandparents, and other caring adults. Walker Moore writes from years of experience as a minister, family speaker, youth culture specialist, and father. He knows well the damage to self-reliance, self-worth, values foundation, and identity that missing out on these essential experiences can cause. In Rite of Passage Parenting, he shows you how to prevent the damage and help your children move toward adulthood in a healthy way. If you are concerned about the effects of the current cultural chaos; if you notice in your children a lack of responsibility, the lack of a good work ethic, disrespect for authority; if you are worried that your children may experiment with false rites of passage-profanity, smoking, drugs, alcohol, body piercing, or sex-let Walker Moore show you how to provide the four essential experiences most children are missing.

Awesome information Sep 26, 2007
Having two children, ages 12 and 9, this is great information! Not only does the author describe the current challenge many parents face, he goes on to offer many parenting ideas you can actually use!
Since we are not given a "users manual" when our kids are born, this book is really full of helpful, practical ideas. I plan to give this book to many of my friends as gifts.
Not just for parents! Jul 19, 2007
We don't have kids yet but there were so many concepts throughout the book that apply to relationships across the board. The concept of significance hit home immediately and it seems as though I can't get away from it... in some respects this might be the best 'leadership' book I've ever read! Definitely a must read... and I expect it will be in many of our family & friends' stockings this Christmas!
