Review

When one of my sons was little, we read about David Livingstone going to Africa with medical aid. My little boy looked up at me, and said, "Maybe I'll start lots of hospitals when I grow up, Mamma." My heart thrilled at the thought of my son the missionary doctor. Not too much later we decided that our son would not be following that path since he grew faint at the sight of blood. But we wondered what would he do? How should we steer him?

Zan Tyler helps parents answer that question in her excellent book, 7 Tools for Cultivating Your Child's Potential,. Tyler's well-thought out and inspiring book gives parents insight into helping point children in the right direction for them. Her chapters on identity, intimacy, purpose, worldview, character, academics, and leadership suggest helpful books and websites, offer apt anecdotes and insightful reasoning, and quote well-chosen scholars.

Though the book is aimed at homeschoolers, Tyler offers principles and insights that can be used by all parents. Especially refreshing is her rejection of "accidental" parenting. Instead she gently teaches intentional parenting. The book is not for parents who want to be consultant-facilitators in their children's lives, but for those who want to fully prepare the children for what God has for them.

Tyler's style is warm and friendly. She includes apt illustrations from her homeschooling background but goes beyond her experience to provide resources from others that she found helpful. The reader does not feel overwhelmed by the "perfect" mother, but rather, Tyler shares her past tears and fears. New homeschoolers will find the book similar to sitting down with a cup of tea at the kitchen table with a learned, homey friend. --Debbie W. Wilson, ChristianBookPreviews.com
