Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Working for a Publisher my sister-in-law asked me to help her through the mess of books out there on child rearing and just send her one or two to guide her from the beginning with my new niece. As I have not had kids yet I could only point her in the direction of Zig Ziglar and assume his book on child care was as good as the rest of his work. My sister-in-law couldn't put it down. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

The bestselling motivational author reveals his simple prescription for success with children, step by positive step. Drawing on his experiences as teacher and parent, Zig Ziglar offers sensible guidelines on praise and encouragement, drugs, discipline, sex and romance, and much more. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Zig really penned some of his best... This book is full of wisdom from his experience and his faith.
What I found most profound was at the end of the book where he writes the answers to a question he posed to his own children: what did we do right and what did we do wrong as parents.
Absolutely honest and extremely informative.

Zig Ziglar is a truly remarkable person. In this book he takes a detour from his usual business topics and talks about raising children. He presents his "old school" ideas which might seem a bit too conservative to some "modern" parents. Especially if talking about faith in God or pre-marriage sex. But it is his firm belief in traditional values that makes this book convincing. Ziglar also does not pretend that he, as a father, was doing everything right. He lets his children speak at the end of the book and they have some critical remarks indeed. I really recommend this book to everyone who wants to become a better parent and I also recommend to combine it with another book by Zig Ziglar, his bestseller See You At The Top.

I ran across this book in the Library and started reading it just because it was a a Zig Ziglar. Having completed the book I am looking to purchase a copy for MY library. Usefull from page 1 the Epilogue on page 245 is the reassurance that we should not lament over the past but focus on the future. This book is chock full of practical immediately applicable insights.

Ziglar relates time-tested, practical, common sense parenting advice in a way only he can. Every parent should read this book and then share it with every other parent they know. It's even more fun to listen to in audio format! I've listened to hundreds of hours of Ziglar teachings, and I still learn from him every time.

Great read, but Definitely Not for Parents with Toddlers. This is a book for parents with kids or older kids. Honestly, it's very focused on what you do and how you act as a parent that will 100% affect how your child acts and who he/she becomes. It can be depressing at parts because you realize how many mistakes you have already done and how many things you are currently doing wrong. My son is only 1 years old and I'm still glad that I read this book because it helps me realize that I'm not ahead of the game in making sure that how I act is how I want my son to act. From the little things that we do, like cutting corners or trying to save a penny here and there, sometimes you cross the line and justify it as a "white line/lie". Ultimately, what would your kid think? As a Christian parent, I want to make sure that I do my best to influence my son positively. I wasn't raised in a negative home, but definitely I was raised in one that was filled with love. Culturally it is natural for me to think negatively first and see the glass half full, but as parents, it is our job to really raise our kids positively. This book helps. I recommend it.

We definitely try to be as positive as possible w/ our kids. This doesn't mean that we should turn a blind eye to lot of the negative influences in society today. This book is a great read for just about everyone that deals w/ kids and for kids themselves.

I was given this book when I was carrying my now 20 year old son. 3 kids later, I still consider this book a bible. I give it to any friend that is becoming a parent. My kids are the most awesome kids you will ever meet. They are sweet, positive, caring, hard workers,etc (Man, I sound like a mom!). I really get compliments of a great job done when someone meets my boys.

Buy and read it. Things will click!
