Parenting through divorce, bankruptcy, and cancer, Lynn Blackwood has taken a path that most parents would shudder just to think of, and he did most of it as a single father of three children. Parenting for a Lifetime distills those years of experience into a guide that allows the reader an inside peek into the real work of parenting, of not giving up when things get rough or you're not sure what to do, of pushing through one trial after another to finish the job of being a great parent-not a perfect parent, but a great parent. You'll never be a perfect parent, and the work of parenting is never done, even when your precious little children grow into adults. Lynn will encourage you to take a long range view of your role as a parent and keep the goal in mind, because it's not really about you, it's about raising responsible grown-ups who will make great parents themselves. Parenting for a Lifetime is an easy read and a must-read for parents at any stage. It's a book that you will want to pass along to other parents so you can share the positive message between its pages. Lynn Blackwood is the author of two previous books: C if You Agree and Divorced...Now What? He is also the father of three: a son who will soon enter medical school, a daughter who is a former Miss New Mexico USA, and a daughter who has just started college.
