Practical Principles for Raising Kids with a Strong Moral Compass
Gioconda A. Marroquín Suárez, BS, MDiv
Do you ever wonder, “Am I really ready to be a parent?” or “Who will my child grow up to be?” Maybe you’ve even doubted that you will be a good parent to your children?
Parenting is not easy. There is no simple “follow this rule” technique. No child is born with a manual that answers every parent’s question about how to raise them. But it is helpful to hear what has worked for other parents.
In Terrific Kids, you will find some simple insights and anecdotes from one parent to another. This book offers some guidance as you make your way through the complex world of parenting. It does not decree rules that are written in stone, but suggests tools that can be adapted to fit each child’s needs and the circumstances of the moment.
Some of the topics touched on in this book include:
- The importance of chores
- The benefit of family outings
- How to encourage good hygiene
- What part the grandparents play in the raising of children
- Dealing with our own childhood pain and how it affects our parenting
It’s time to learn about raising truly Terrific Kids!
