I just couldn't get into this book despite trying. It seemed far to "preachy" for me and didn't seem to offer very concrete ways to apply the ideas for teaching kids character. I quit reading when I encountered a section that had a couple references to only socializing with those that have the same beliefs. I believe everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and differing beliefs does not mean I should exclude someone.
intructive book wrapping lots of valuable informations about ways to raise kids with characters. It's true each person and family have their own beliefs and values but you can learn quite few things from this book, since it tackles basic daily mundane human issues and matters that each of us encounters in their daily life, specially with our kids.
worth reading. like once every year at least.

“No man ever sank under the burden of the day. It is when tomorrow’s burden is added to the burden of today that the weight is more than a man can bear. Never load yourself so. If you find yourself so loaded, at least remember this: it is your own doing, not God’s. He begs you to leave the future to Him, and mind the present.” 0 likes
