Following the success of Family First: Your Step-by-Step Plan for Creating a Phenomenal Family , Dr Phil now puts the reader to work practising purposeful parenting. There are practical exercises that build up a host of concrete, in-depth tools for raising happy children who approach the world with integrity, honesty, and respect. Families don't have to suffer because parents don't communicate and children need not act up because they aren't receiving the right balance of guidance and discipline. Dr Phil shows how we can shape our households into functional, supportive, and stimulating environments that we and our kids are happy to call home. His message is that if we are raising the future, we must invest the time and energy to do it right. The reward - a happy, fulfilled home life that lets your children thrive - will be well worth the work.
