We know our job as parent is the very most important, but it sure is tough! Wish these kids came with an instruction manual. How are we parents supposed to manage? Or even survive?

When my first child was born, I had stacks of well-read parenting books. I had taken Child Development in college, and I "knew" some things about parenting. Was I ever in for a surprise! I think my college child development and parenting books should have had a warning sticker on them: Don't try this at home--it's harder than it looks!

Here's help! A House United is all about teaching children correct principles and communication skills so they can learn to govern themselves! Home can be happier. Home life can be peaceful. Yay!

Learn through stories, examples, and questions & answers. Even tough teens respond to the principles taught in this book. Excellent, down-to-earth help for parents to make life better. 383 Pages, paperback.
