I wrote the forward for this wonderful book so I want to tell you that in the interest of full disclosure but I also want to tell you WHY I wrote the forward to this wonderful book.
FINALLY! A resource for all of the questions we’ve had to muddle through and figure out on our own.
FINALLY, a gentle voice of kindness and reason that can tell us “Hey, I’ve been there. Here is what worked for me and why it will work for you, too.”
Being a parent means facing a series of escalating challenges in raising children, the ante gets upped every year older they get as we try to raise them to be gracious, kind, and intelligent adults. This book has more solutions to parenting problems than all of the parenting books I’ve ever read, combined!
I took it to a church event that I arrived early at. I sat reading it, waiting on everyone to arrive, and another mother leaned in to see what I was reading and so I handed it to her. We got into a conversation about the challenges of parenting and question after question came up I’d say “Well, I think Maralee probably talks about that, lets see..” One after one we were able to find each topic we discussed and Maralee addressed them simply with wisdom that just flat out made sense!
This is a manners book but it is also a guide for any parent who wants to equip their child for success, love, and happiness in their adult life. Children really should exit the womb holding a copy of this book!
