Through relationship building including time, trust, boundaries and real personal connections, Jullien helps us reclaim our homes and parental authority. She also helps us understand that the cyber-world our children are growing up in, and it’s challenges, are vastly different from the world we grew up in.
Fresh Start gives practical guidelines and direction to help parents establish their core beliefs, house rules, ways to communicate, great discussion questions…plus a whole lot more. The information is shared in small bites, and makes it easy to understand and process. This would be a great book for individuals, couples, parents groups, moms groups, and book clubs to discuss.
I encourage you to buy this book and dig into its principles. Don’t let our cyber-culture take time and relationship away from your family!
