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.

Great Read

It took me awhile to get through this all because it's hard for me to find free time to read but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I'm looking forward to applying these principles in my own household. Everything was explained very easily.

I really have enjoyed all the books I've read by the Yates. They are humble and grounded in the word of God.

“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
