5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Growing Dad on February 17, 2006
Format: Paperback
At first the concepts in this didn't seem all that different from other Christian parenting books I've read. And as I think about it, they're not really that different, they're just organized in a way that keeps me thinking about them and applying them. Since I finished the book about a month ago, I literally think daily about new ways to apply the principles (Foundation, Connection, Direction, and Correction). I realize that I keep buying these books to find new ways to change my kids. But this book has changed me! I'm more prayerful and thoughtful about how God is present in my daily life with my family and interestingly (though the book talks little about this), at work. I'm more peaceful when I come home to chaos. As I change, so do my kids. Life at home is more pleasant. I'm much more eager to talk about faith issues with my wife and children.

Other than The Purpose Driven Life, I don't think I've ever been so impacted by reading a book. I'm really loooking forward to how God will use these concepts in my family's life.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Elated Parent on December 17, 2005
Format: Paperback
This book erases the confusion I get from reading so many different parenting perspectives. The four principles seem to bring everything together so that I can parent from my strengths, and according to my style. The main effect on me and my kids is that our relationship is now more fun and relaxed. The really cool thing is that as I'm more relaxed, the kids don't act up so much. They still act up some, but I'm much more able to deal with it and still feel connected to them. It's better on all of us.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on December 5, 2005
Format: Paperback
I read this book with a great deal of apprenhension as I have tried every book and suggestions that deal with raising 4 kids in todays culture. I was blown away by the simple, yet incredible way to deal with kid's problems, anxieties and frustrations. In the few short days I have practiced the methods these people suggest I can truthfully say IT WORKS!!!! I would recommend this book to all parents who have kids from 1 to 21. The most valuable of all "Parenting" books!!!!
