Product Description

Based on her years of experience as a mother, counselor, and family-life educator, author Susan Vogt sets out to inspire, equip, and comfort parents in the awesome task of raising kids who will make positive contributions to the world. Using a delightful blend of honesty and humor, "Vogt offers straightforward discussions on important issues like sexuality, racism, global awareness, and spirituality. Personal family anecdotes, stories from other experienced parents, and perspective from Vogt's own children enhance the practical information while revealing many successful, and some not-so-successful, strategies. Raising Kids Who Will Make a Difference provides ideas rather than answers. This book offers valuable information and parenting strategies for children of all ages and stages of development, from toddlers to teenagers. Each chapter concludes with reflection activities to stimulate discussion for the whole family. Parents who offer positive affirmation, use good communication skills, and show sensitivity to others teach their children valuable life lessons and the true meaning of love. Vogt attempts to dispel the myth of the perfect parent and encourages parents to equip their children with necessary life skills. "In the end we can never control how our children will turn out. That is up to them. We are responsible for the process we use in parenting, not the outcome."
