Today's parents are all but completely disconnected from the commonsense parenting wisdom of their parents and grandparents. The self-esteem parenting revolution has erased the practical insights gathered by generations of parents about the best way to raise kids. In this book, family psychologist John Rosemond seeks to recover this wisdom by resurrecting what parents of yesteryear tended to say.
Maxims such as "because I said so", "children should be seen, not heard", and "you're acting too big for your britches" are more than cute sayings for John. They are parenting principles, springing from a biblical view of the world. John makes the case that these principles from the good old days are just as valid today and will help parents to pass on values to their kids so that they can succeed at life. Grandma was right after all!

This had a immediate effect on me.
Wonderfully read with emotion and engaging from the start.
GEMS OF WISDOM all over start to finish!
In two days I have slammed down the breaks on so many tiny nagging things that made parenting so difficult! As the book says i 'lowered the boom' on all my kids and things are taking a U turn very very quickly.
Peace is on the horizon and I cannot thank the author enough for sharing this golden knowledge! I cringed as I realized I related to all the normal awful parenting mistakes and lightbulbs where just firing off so much I had to sit many times gasping and laughing and realizing so much crap about modern day parenting and the reality of how parenting has changed.
Spectacular... 100 times Thank You and thank you again and again.
So strangely I tried after to listen to a modern parenting book and it just sounded like psychobabble idiocy!
This book trumps ALL parenting books!!!
Do not doubt buy this book you will not regret it.
"Many great suggestions!"
Wish I had this insight when my children were younger! Listening now for my granddaughter
