For every parent who has gone the extra mile and made every possible attempt at doing the best they can in the raising of their children -- there is a special book that can add a new flavor to their efforts. Here are 365 fantastic readings ("meditations") that can be reading in two or three minutes and put to work immediately. The readings cover topics and issues parents of children from elementary through high school face each and every day: fear, cheating, respect, jealousy, pride, faith, temptation, guilt, sex, sharing, self-confidence, embarrassment, crisis, and anger (to name only a few). The author, a respected expert on dysfunctional family relationships and the special needs of children, is packed with practical solutions to everyday problems every family faces. A basis theme appears throughout the book: committed parents putting the recommendations to work will help their children in handling future situations and grow as parents. There is also a respect for God found throughout the pages of the book -- a reference that the author isn't shy about promoting. Committed parents don't need lecturing and this book will reveal its message through highly effective meditations that will stand the test of time.
