Abstract:

Being a parent is the toughest job in the world, especially with the increasing number of negative influences and pitfalls that face our kids today, from childhood obesity and out-of-control celebrity culture to the dangers of the Internet and credit card debt. Larry Winget has never been one to shy away from tough truths, and what he says here may be difficult for some parents to swallow: We are in the midst of a crisis with our kids. Often the five basics of parenting: Communication, Involvement, Education, Discipline and Punishment, are ignored to such an extent that parenting is dysfunctional. How to get out of this mess is the message of this book. Learn what to teach your children and teenagers.
