Format: Hardcover
Prior to the birth of our children, mothers frequently pass the days of our pregnancies studying "what to expect" books and manuals, pondering each passing phase and development. However, many new parents find themselves swamped once the child arrives, and parenting manuals frequently gather dust on the bookshelves as well intentioned moms and dads struggle just to keep everyone fed, clothed and relatively clean. By the time our children reach school age, most of us are so busy driving them to their various activities that we take little time for parenting enrichment.

One new resource for parents, the latest book by Chick Moorman and Thomas Haller, The 10 Commitments: Parenting with Purpose (Personal Power Press, December 2004, hardcover, 157 pages), is well worth the time of any parent. In this book, the authors challenge parents to adopt a new approach - "grace-full" parenting. Using real-life examples and practical ideas, the book lays forth ten commitments every parent should make towards putting the role of parent and the family unit at the top of one's priority list. Regardless of the age or number of children in your family, the book is a sound and inspiring primer and a reminder of the importance of truly engaging in our job and blessing as parents.

Wow! Did this book ever challenge me. I found that The 10 Commitments: Parenting with Purpose invited me to take an honest look at my present style of parenting. I didn't always like what I saw, but because of reading it I have set some new goals for myself as a mother and I like what I am becoming.

I found that this book, divided into 10 commitments that Moorman and Haller suggest are necessary for effective parenting, helped me change in a positive way. I changed my mind about parenting. I changed some of my behaviors. And now I am seeing positive change in the outcomes it has produced in my children.

I strongly recommend it.

I have three teenagers. This book has helped me gain parenting skills I never knew existed. Putting the commitments into practice has helped our home atmosphere beyond belief...I love watching my teens' faces when they make choices for themselves and they bask in the pride of their own decisions. This perfect purse size book goes with me everywhere and is always available for me at swim meets, shopping malls, or anywhere I need a reminder to Parent with Purpose.
