Parenting A House United: Changing Children's Hearts by Teaching Self Government

We read this book by Nicholeen Peck as part of my book group a couple months ago. It outlines on of the best parenting plans I have seen. I have been teaching parenting workshops off and on for years, and this book has sent me back to the drawing board. It incorporates ideas that many parenting plans do not include, such as how to teach children important skills and values.

We have been slowly implementing many of the parenting ideas from this book in our home, and it has been great. This book advocates a very involved style of parenting, but the ultimate goal is allowing children to make informed choices about their behavior. And guess what? It works!

To find out more about this book and Nicholeen Peck, visit her website here.

I recommend this book to all parents, and to all those that work with children. This book is self-published, but the lack of professional editing should be overlooked because this is a great resource.
