What does it take to raise great kids? Do you get tough? Or show acceptance? Lay down the rules? Or lighten up? In this audio guide, Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend show you how to avoid the twin extremes of permissiveness and overcontrol, and instead give your child the care and acceptance that make grace real to your child and the discipline and firmness that give direction. Drs. Cloud and Townsend provide you with important parenting advice that will help you reach middle-ground in the way you raise your kids, while helping them to cultivate 6 essential character traits: connectedness, responsibility, reality, competence, morality, and worship/spiritual life. The authors are popular speakers and co-hosts of the nationally broadcast New Life Live radio program. Download and start listening now!

    " The first half was a bit basic and theory based but still had good principles. It got much more interesting with "nuts and bolts" discussion later on. A good resource to revisit during my kids' later stages of development. "
