Dr. Chuck Borsellino helps you sort out fact from fiction, intention from outcome.

Publisher's Description

Are you a Pinocchio Parent?

You may be asking yourself these very questions: What lies, clichés, and half-truths do I tell my children? How do these lies hurt my children and my relationship with them? Clinical psychologist and author Chuck Borsellino claims that our culture condones all sorts of lies -- from "tiny fibs" to calloused misrepresentations. Though well-intentioned in our unintentional lies, we set our children up for failure and disappointment and undercut our credibility.

In the pages of this book, Dr. Chuck Borsellino helps you sort out fact from fiction, intention from outcome. Most important, you'll learn a better way -- a way to help your children live life within the bounds of reality while fully exploring the dreams of their heart.

"This book is more than just another how-to-parent-your-children-the-right-way sort of book. It's wisdom, experience, and common sense all rolled into one." Nicholas Sparks -- Best-Selling Author, A Walk to Remember and The Notebook; Father of Five
"While reading Pinocchio Parenting, I felt my own nose growing as I tried to convince myself I'd never told my kids a fib...ha! Chuck's witty approach and wise advice make this book a joy to read, while offering the vital tools parents need to help their kids face the Real World by consistently speaking the truth in love." Liz Curtis Higgs -- Best-Selling Author, Bad Girls of the Bible
