From the Inside Flap
Adding honor as a factor in raising kids ...and parent-child relationships.
Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller offer a thorough program for establishing honor as a basis of family life -- not just children honoring parents, but parents respecting children and children honoring each other. Even if honor seems a long way off in your household, you will find practical suggestions here to bring that goal a little closer -- suggestions for kids of all ages. Honor is the biblical value that will bring about good behavior. It's more than just changing what kids do; it's changing the deeper issues of the heart that triggered the behavior.

'Honor' is a). treating some one as special, b). have a good altitude c). exceed the expectation. We talk about why bullying is not right because there is totally a lack of honor. And we can practice honor at home ('honor father and mother' and honor each other among siblings.) Then, we can extend that value to outside (school or work).
By the way, I also bought the audio sound track from the national biblical parenting website. I listen to them when I am driving. It is a good summary from the book. At the same time, some stories about a strict parent without honoring the teen child, it makes me ponder and reflect on my own. Hope it helps you, too.
Having already gone through some 'tunnel years' with my 16 years old, I can feel it speaking to me.. I am hoping I can be changing better for my 9 and 11 year old children
The appendix have home activities to do with my family. My children's eye was wide open when we use the pepper in water to represent hurtful remarks, and the one drop of detergent as the secret ingredient of 'honor'. And teenage time is difficult 'tunnel years'. We still should not give up hope. We should still work towards honoring by using the 'observe and run' method. I am still looking forward to talk with my preteen about 'teen challenge' (before my children turns 13), and work on some character building - servanthood, giving instead of receiving.
This book (together with 'Parenting is heart work' book) has helped me to change my parenting - instead of behavior modification, it is to change the heart. And in order to change the heart, we really have to work towards building a strong relationship with our children, instead of keep pointing out what they do are not good-enough.
I felt the book was practical and worth reading.
