Editorial Reviews


"Motivating and inspirational. . . . find inspiration and support for raising children who are less stressed by using positive communication, organization and prioritizing, and realistic expectations."  —Notebook: The National Organization of Mothers of Twins

"The Garcia-Prats are experts at parenting, not the type that comes with a PhD in family studies, but the type that comes from raising 10 kind, responsible, well-adjusted children (all boys). Their advice is practical and encompasses tried and true methods of fostering family bonds. They are willing to share their failures, too, so they never come off as preachy."  —Parent Council Review on Good Families Don't Just Happen

"This family is remarkable not only for its sheer size, but also for its determination to fight off the erosion of traditional values in today's fast-paced world. They are raising not only good students but children with good character."  —Ladies' Home Journal on Good Families Don't Just Happen
