Product Description

The greatest challenge a father can face is raising his children well. This short, easy-to-read book, first published as a booklet in 1989, clarifies the problems involved in raising children from the father's perspective and outlines what other men have tried and done successfully to raise their children well.

In reading this book, fathers and potential fathers will learn how adolescent defiance can be turned into a positive learning experience. Mark Twain is quoted: "When I was 18 I thought my father was an idiot. When I was 21, I was amazed how much he had learned in 3 years."

The book is also helpful in forming positive father-daughter relationships, since girls will evaluate men, and particularly future husbands, in light of their father's influence in their lives. The author also highlights how the adolescent's choice between religious faith or materialism hinges on the religious leadership of the father.

He concludes with the 12 commandments of successful fathers, and provides a practical self-examination for fathers.

James Stenson is a frequent speaker and consultant to schools in North America, the U.K., Ireland, and Australia. Two of his books, "Upbringing" (a parent's discussion guide on character formation), and "Lifeline" (the religious formation of children) have been reprinted many times. An educator with 20 years teaching experience, he has helped launch two private schools, in Washington and Chicago. Book measures 7.25" long x 4.25" wide.
