I highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with the pressures of modern life on their family. It gives real-life advice for real-life families.
Thank you for sharing yourself and your perspective with others.
Boteach writes that "a lack of passion characterizes the new American parenting tradition, and so an uninspired life has become our principal legacy to our children, just as it was our parents' legacy to us." He goes about teaching a parent's duty to his or her children. He explains his philosophy of a parents' role as "PLANT"...1. Protection 2. Love, 3. Activity 4. Novelty 5. Tradition. It is a meaningul and relevant approach to parenting that leads the parent to focus his or her energies on the child above all else in life.
Boteach writes that the road back to inspired parenting and an inspired life is spending more time with your children. He has first hand experience of developing an inspired parenting child as the father of 8 children. He shares many helpful experiences of his family and from his work with other families.
This book is helpful to turn your focus of parenting where it should be and to adjust your parenting approach to one that is inspirational and passionate and will have lasting positive effects for your family.
I highly recommend this for parents.
