In Raising Great Kids, counselors and best-selling authors Henry Cloud and John Townsend give parents a means of raising children successfully, using the biblical principles of grace and truth rather than the twin extremes of permissiveness and overcontrol. In conjunction with MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers International), the authors provide a parenting resource that includes both developmental and biblical perspectives. This workbook helps parents of preschoolers apply the principles described in Raising Great Kids. The workbook can be used individually or in a group setting.
