When it comes to parenting, it’s better to be abnormal. It’s true—because the majority of parents today have no plan for how they will raise their children. Sure, they may take childbirth classes and confer at length on paint colors for the nursery, but how much focused time do couples spend actually talking to each other about the best way to raise a child socially, spiritually, and otherwise? According to popular research, not much at all.
Parenting from Your Strengths counters that trend by getting parents on the same page, no matter where they’ve been or how old their children are now. The authors present an easy four-step plan, coupled with an amazingly accurate personality test that will begin to transform your God-given household in a way that encourages every family member. When we understand each person’s strengths and learn to value his or her differences, home life and life in general are greatly improved.
