What did you love best about 12 Huge Mistakes Parents Can Avoid?

Concise info. on the biggest mistakes today's parents might be prone to make and how to avoid these mistakes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of 12 Huge Mistakes Parents Can Avoid?

Being reminded of the importance of helping teens become healthy adults and being given a better tool-kit in order to do that.

What does Kirby Heyborne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

You can go back 30-seconds and re-listen! ;-)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No! I listened on daily one-hour walks as I described in my earlier Audible book: Walking, Living, Learning.

Any additional comments?

Dr. Tim Elmore has a great heart to equip students, young professionals and parents in leadership and life. I'd listen/read any book he's ever produced.
Speaking of, why not do an Audible version of Habitudes? (you can always attach a PDF of the images ;-))!!!!!!!!
