Disclosure: I received a copy in exchange for hosting the blog tour through Cedar Fort.
Join author, Randal A. Wright as he hosts a blog tour for his book, Power Parenting in the LDS Home , from January 2–31, 2014.
The best wisdom comes from experience. Here Dr. Randal Wright has compiled the experiences of over 500 adults and their responses to his question: What parenting worked and what didn’t work in your parent’s home? Each chapter is based on the most commonly repeated mistakes and successes to help you become the successful parent you want to be.
Meet the Author:
Randal Wright has been fascinated by the study of families for many years. Seeking ways to raise righteous children led to his receiving a B.S. and M.S. with emphasis in the family area and then a Ph.D. in Family Studies from Brigham Young University. He worked for many years as an Institute director for the Church Education System and taught at BYU in the religion department. He has written several books in the past on family topics including Families in Danger: Protecting Your Family in an X-rated World, Building Better Homes and Families and The Case for Chastity: Helping Youth Stay Morally Clean. He has spoken across the United States, Canada and England and has been a frequent speaker at BYU Campus Education Week and the Especially for Youth program for many years. Randal and his wife Wendy live in Austin, Texas and are the parents of five children and sixteen grandchildren.
There are many great parenting books out there, but a lot fall short. Although Power Parenting in the LDS Home is geared toward the LDS parent, this book is a must have for every Christian parent! It's a book about parenting mistakes and the answers to how you can learn from them from parent's who have been there. If you have a shelf filled with parenting books collecting dust, then pick up a copy of Power Parenting in the LDS Home and start fresh with new ideas, renewed hope, and faith that you can learn from your parenting mistakes.
