As a parent, have you ever felt like a deer in the headlights? You find yourself asking questions like, "Why do our kids act like that?" You're sure you've done everything right. After all, you work hard, provide them a nice home, put food on the table, furnish them with all the latest technology and make sure they are safe. In return you get Miss Smart-mouth and Mr. Know-It-All instead of the adorning gratitude and devotion, you expected. How can you encourage them to be grateful or at least respectful? For decades people have asked us, "How do you do it? You have such an awesome family." It is this question that encouraged me to write Parenting Through the Mirror. In this book, I'll share with you how I learned that the best place to start fixing your kids is right in your own mirror. That's right. The person staring back at you is the perfect place to start. While we can never change another person - we can choose to change ourselves. The result is an empowered you, who no longer has to react to whatever life and your kids throw your way. I dare you to take the Mirror Challenge. Sandy Lawson and her husband have over 30 years of experience in children and youth ministries and have influenced the lives of thousands of children, teenagers and parents.
