Frequently Bought Together
From the Inside Flap
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.

Putting the 'honor' back in our family has been the key to our success, as mother and as a son. This is not just for Mom's and Dad's, but for single Mom's, single Dad's and grandparents to0!
I am only halfway through reading the book, and just what I've put into practice already is helping! Things aren't perfect (yet! : ) but are getting better already! And one of the biggest things that hit home is that it must start with *me*. I highly recommend this book (as well as their other one!)
I love the focus on honoring each other... treating people as special, doing more than what's expected, and having a good attitude.
I love that the book addresses teaching honor to your kids, but also how we can honor them as parents. I am trying to be more careful in how I talk with my son... especially when he is in trouble. We have really taken time out recently to talk to him about how he is feeling when he is angry. He is starting to understand and communicate so much more on his own.
Another thing I really like about the book is that it has a "Take it a Step Further" section at the end of each chapter with discussion questions. I really want to get the book for a few of my family and friends and read it together. Perfect for a mall group or Bible Study.

I loved the honor-based approach presented in this book. It covers a lot of areas, including how siblings relate with one another and "the tunnel years" of the teens. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Randy Willis
