What is the most important nugget of wisdom that would benefit most parents? This book is the result of lessons learned and wisdom imparted by Certified Family Life Educators. Their stories, personal experiences, and poems emphasize character building, parent-child relationships, guidance and discipline. In the pinnacle chapter, “Wisdom of the Ages,” the authors trace wisdom from the past, handed down to us from early pioneers and writers from various disciplines–family science, sociology, psychology, psychiatry, biology, and the medical field. The authors unmask developments over time and reveal why there are so many theories and programs on parenting. The journey they share helps us to navigate through tough parenting situations. For students, instructors and counselors, this book can be applied to parent education and marriage and family studies.
