Product Description

There’s no doubt parenting is hard, and it certainly seems like it’s getting harder. Parents, however, don’t have the luxury of either giving up or giving in. Authors Mark D. Ogletree and Douglas E. Brinley, with decades of combined experience as marriage and family therapists, encourage parents to redouble their efforts in Courageous Parenting. Learn how to raise independent, strong kids in the face of declining moral values, avoiding parenting traps along the way.
