Tremendously insightful book. Don't let the fact that this book is not widely read prevent you from checking it out. It's a great parenting book for anyone, but Christians will find it especially meaningful--regardless of how old your children are or whether they're angels or not so angelic. This book has lifetime applications and is not focused on dysfunctional relationships, although it will certainly prove helpful in those situations as well. A must read for any parent or adult child with an interest in family relationship dynamics. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 140007052X, Paperback)

Parenting with Humility...We often realize that we learn as much from our children as they learn from us. So why don’t parents approach the task of child-rearing as a learning experience, rather than a mandate to make sure their kids succeed in life?

To reduce the pressure and enjoy greater closeness in your family, turn your parenting upside-down by allowing God to use your children to help you grow up. Imagine what would happen if you began to prize what you’re being taught by your children’s quirks, failures, and normal childhood dilemmas, rather than worrying about whether you’re doing everything right as a parent. Now you can let go of the pressure to make sure your children succeed, and instead learn to grow into spiritual maturity by listening to your children.
