This quietly inspiring book, by a Christian humanitarian and mother, offers a down-to-earth set of principles for raising responsible children. Meredith Mitchell's encouraging tone draws listeners into Kristen Welch's message by making the author's perspectives on family life sound more hopeful and empowering than prescriptive. Combined with the small-town values the book embodies, the calm confidence in Mitchell's narration will make many listeners feel nostalgic for bygone times when parents were more decisive and more willing to confront self-absorption and selfishness in their children. Illustrated with memorable vignettes, this is an effective presentation of the steps parents can take to help children accept the responsibilities of adulthood, have realistic expectations of life, and find the courage to be their best selves in today's entitled culture.
