About the Book
Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN, teach parents how to help children form the internal strength they'll need every day as they grow older.

Parents have the greatest influence on their children's character. Mom or Dad's words, choices, actions, and reactions mold a child's view of almost everything. It can be a terrifying thought. But there is hope.

Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanna Miller have spent years helping parents cultivate a healthy conscience and a vibrant faith in their kids. Motivate Your Child is a straightforward guide to doing this at home. Every chapter includes practical examples of families applying the Bible to their current issues, such as backtalking or being mean to siblings. From the "Integrity Package" to the "The Family Challenge," they offer words to say, plans to implement, and ideas for working it out day by day.

With God's help, it is possible to train and direct a child's internal motivation-motivation that will serve them for the rest of their lives.

My Take on the Book
How many times in your life as a parent have you had to hard on your kids to get things done. I know that I, for one, have had to do this many times in my children's lives. That being said this book is a great resource that provides any parent with a full array of resources and tips to try with any type of child. From the very first pages you are given valuable insights and things to consider with your own child. I particularly liked the quiz in chapter 3 as it let me see my kids, especially my oldest in a brand new light and it will do the same for you too. The book is written for all families and you will quickly find new strength and energy in your resolve in the practical, down-to-earth ideas shared in the pages of this book!

I highly recommend this to any parent or grandparent, it is invaluable!
